7. Eugene, Ore. (pop. 156,929) Though it may be “all-American,” there’s nothing stuffy about this idyllic town known for its romantic covered bridges, colorful murals, and natural beauty. It’s tops when it comes to counterculture, eco-consciousness, and outdoors enthusiasm. Home to the University of Oregon (an institution The Advocate College Guide for LGBT Students placed among the top 20), the city has a well-deserved progressive reputation. And the Oregon Bach Festival (OregonBachFestival.com) is classical music’s coolest event.
