Downtown Salem

Best time to visit Downtown Salem is right now! With over 68 restaurants, independent and national retailers, hotel and two historic theaters, no visit to downtown is complete without shopping, dining and entertainment. A variety of coffee shops are conveniently located as you take a walking tour of the downtown historic district and visit Riverfront Park and the recently completed Peter Courtney signature pedestrian bridge that connects Minto Island Brown Park, and Wallace Marine Park trails.

Improvements are underway in several historic buildings, streetscape and public spaces, in addition to new construction of an office building and residential rental units all contributing to downtown vibrancy.
