It is nearly impossible to run out of outdoor activities in Salem. Whether hiking, bicycling, or kayaking, Salem keeps individuals of all ages on the move. Some areas to explore and visit include:
More than 30 miles of trails for walking, running, and biking are available in Historic Downtown Salem. The
Union Street Railroad Bridge along with the
Peter Courtney Minto Island Bicycle and Pedestrian Bridge connect three major urban parks:
See what’s happening at the
Capitol Theaters. Check out the many many coffee shops. Enjoy hard ciders and micro-brews in the Alley between Chemeketa and State Street (between Liberty and Commercial). Experience live music nightly at several locations or catch a comedy show. In the summer, enjoy concerts and
movies in Riverfront Park.
With so much to experience, consider staying for more than a day. Grab a room at a local bed and breakfast or at the
Grand Hotel, conveniently located within walking distance of Downtown.
