Downtown Salem

The best time to visit Downtown Salem is right now! With more than 68 restaurants, independent and national retailers, a 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 historic district. Visit Riverfront Park and the recently completed pedestrian bridge that connects Minto-Brown Island Park and Wallace Marine Park trails.

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