Salem, Virginia: The Place to Raise a Family

Years ago my hometown called me back home and I can say that living here in Salem, Virginia is the best choice that I have made for my family and I. Located in the hills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, but still within a five hour drive of the beach, Salem can offer a family what it needs. From some of the best schools in the state to recreational opportunities galore, this is the place to live. The best areas in Salem, Virginia to visit include the Salem Civic Center. It is here that in the summer you can visit a summer fair complete with carnival rides and cotton candy or in the spring you can attend a baseball game. If you have kids and they want to go play, then check out one of the playgrounds that Salem Parks and Recreation has to offer. Salem is just minutes from interstate 81. If you need air travel, then the Roanoke Regional Airport is only minutes away. Come and check Salem out today and see if this is the place to raise your family.
