The Salem center is approximately the area of Northwest House of Theological and the area of Hallie Ford Museum of Art.

When you mention Salem in conversion, the subject might turn to witch trials or hocus pocus, but the Salem in Oregon (versus Massachusetts) features a culture devoid of witchcraft — one that includes a legacy of craft beers and bicycling. Several venues throughout the charming downtown district, such as Venti's Café + Taphouse, sell a range of delicious craft beers, and you'll rarely turn down any city street without encountering a bicyclist, whether they're riding for exercise, enjoyment, or transportation. This town is known as the origin of the famous Kettle Chips and for its many bakeries and delis. More from this guide...

Whether you're visiting for pleasure or on business, you'll find an array of comfortable hotels to create a home base. You can take advantage of public transportation or rent a car so you don't miss a single Salem attraction. From the historic Deepwood Estate to the quaint Riverfront Carousel, Salem offers a plethora of vintage charm, and it goes by the nickname "Tree City, USA" for good reason.

Follow these tips to make your trip to Salem, Oregon, as special as possible and to take advantage of the lovely hotels within the city limits.

When to Visit Salem, Oregon

If you want to experience Salem in all its glory, consider planning your visit for September or April. The spring and fall seasons bring lots of color to the city as well as crisp weather that strikes the perfect Goldilocks balance. In spring, you'll see the flowers bloom and the grass turn a vibrant green after its dormancy throughout winter. Autumn, meanwhile, introduces fall color to the trees and shrubbery, and you'll enjoy the nip in the air that suggests the approach of the holiday season.

If you're hoping to enjoy a warmer vacation, you can plan a visit during the summer. Tourist rates increase between May and August, which means more crowds. You'll also have to pay higher rates for hotel rooms because of the influx of travelers, but you might enjoy hiking, biking, fishing, and other outdoor activities more thoroughly if you can count on sunshine.

Winters in Salem get extremely cold, so only visit between November and March if you're determined to see snow. Hoodoo is the closest ski resort to Salem, and if you enjoy hitting the slopes, consider buying tickets in advance. The holiday season often experiences a spike in tourism and visiting family members, so expect more crowds from late November through the New Year.
