Salem is often unfairly dismissed as boring and frequently treated like the bland stepsister of Portland.How unfortunate because Salem has so much to offer: beautiful parks, gardens and public spaces.Additionally residents enjoy a vibrant dining scene, numerous community events (see Salem365), a huge variety of entertainment options including community theatre and music performances.Drive a few minutes in any direction from the downtown core (yes, Salem has an actual downtown!) and you're in the middle of beautiful agricultural areas, award winning vineyards and wineries. An hour west is the amazing Oregon coastline, an hour north is Portland and two hours east is the high desert.Excellent medical care, schools, and endless volunteer opportunities make Salem even more desirable.I've barely scratched the surface of all Salem,Oregon is. It's truly an underrated gem.
