Salem is home to the historic Willamette University, with its beautiful campus located right downtown next to the state capitol. The university regularly hosts concerts by the Oregon Symphony, art shows, theater productions, and other popular cultural events. The majestic capitol building, flanked by daffodils and cherry blossoms, overlooks Downtown and creates a stunning centerpiece for the city.

Salem is an excellent place for folks who love the outdoors, offering endless opportunities for hiking, biking, camping, and kayaking both in the city (Bush’s Pasture Park, Riverfront Park) and nearby (Silver Falls State Park). The city is also positioned right in the heart of Oregon’s wine country, and the Salem Wine Trail is a popular circuit of local vineyards that locals love as much as visitors. Salem hosts a full roster of major events and celebrations throughout the year, with the biggest being the Oregon State Fair, which draws thousands of people from around the state every August.
