Visit Salem

Salem, the capital city of Oregon, lies in the center of the lush Willamette Valley. Surrounded by green pastures, fields of flowers, gardens, vegetables, orchards and vineyards, Salem’s summer farmer’s markets overflow with locally raised produce and hand-crafted products.

Salem offers a wide array of restaurants, hotels, and tourist attractions, ranging from historic sites and museums to events that appeal to a wide variety of interests. These include sports tournaments, arts fairs, theater, and music. From the vibrant shopping district and historic downtown, several parks are within walking distance, inviting residents and visitors to enjoy the outdoors.
