Think Salem Witch Trials in the late 1600s that culminated in 19 people being hung for their crimes of witchcraft, and that is part of Salem's history. Originally a Methodist mission founded in the 1830s to help the local Native Americans who contracted numerous diseases from the early traders in the area, eventually the missionaries' focus shifted to the white settlers. This mission building was later sold and became the Oregon Institute, but it is now known as the Willamette University. When you arrive in the capital of Oregon you will be greeted by a 22 ft golden statue of a cape-wearing pioneer. John Heder of Napoleon Dynamite movie fame hails from Salem and this was the birthplace of "Kettle Chips" having begun production out of a van to now being the biggest manufacturer of natural potato chips in the US.
Salem, known internationally not just for witches but also for its wineries, sits in the picturesque and lush Willamette Valley on the banks of the Willamette River and was founded in 1842. The locals are obsessed with trees, gigantic breakfasts and trees. Awash in marble structures and cherry blossoms, there is an abundance of bicycles to be found here for those that like to get around on 2 wheels. Take to the Willamette Valley Scenic Bikeway that runs right through Salem to nearby Keizer if your legs will make it. You can hike and or camp in the Silver Falls State Park or the Champoeg State Heritage Area for a chance meeting with some bears and coyotes. To soothe your aching muscles, take a dip in the natural hot springs at Breitenbush Hot Springs. If you want to get up close and personal with some wildlife without being in the total wilderness, then head to the Ankeny National Wildlife Refuge.
If you tire of being swept up in outdoor activities, go for some that are more on the indulgent side in the quaint tree-lined center of the city. Check out the quirky side streets that are overflowing with coffee houses, galleries and funky boutiques. If you want to hit the beach, it will only take about an hour by car through scenic farmland and magical forests to get to the Pacific Coast.
