Salem, the state's capital city, is located in the center of the Willamette Valley -- one of the most fertile and agriculturally-productive regions in the world. This area, dotted with cities, farms and forests, is considered one of the most livable in the country -- offering a low cost-of-living, good schools and year-round pleasant weather. Salem is located less than one hour from Oregon's major metropolitan area, Portland, and is approximately an hour and a half from the Pacific Ocean, the Cascade Mountain Range, and beautiful Mt. Hood.
For outdoor enthusiasts and urban culture fans, opportunities abound in and around Salem. Outdoor recreation, performing arts and a variety of festivals and special events are offered year-round.
Just east of Salem, you'll find spectacular mountains with a myriad of lakes, rivers and streams, allowing for an abundance of recreational opportunities. You're never far from a place to enjoy skiing, camping, fishing, white water rafting, snowmobiling or other outdoor activities.
To the west you'll find the rugged, picturesque Oregon Coast. The coast offers lighthouses, viewpoints, bays, and beaches that dot the unspoiled, 400-mile shoreline. Visitors can experience the wonders of the ocean by exploring tide pools or joining whale watchers during the whales' twice-yearly migration or view the sea life up close at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
