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. Summer farmer’s markets overflow with locally-raised produce and hand-crafted products.

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