Salem is all the wonderful things about Oregon bundled into a small, sweet, and accessible package. The political center of the Williamette Valley, this state capital is still brimming with the optimistic pioneer spirit upon which it was founded. An agricultural town at heart, no Salem vacations are complete without sampling the "Cherry City's" most-famous product.

The Prewitt-Allen Archaeological Museum showcases pieces from the ancient Mediterranean and the Bush House Museum offers a collection of artifacts in the luxurious setting of a 19th-century mansion. Those truly interested in Salem throughout the ages can't miss the Williamette Heritage Center, which provides insights into the lives of early settlers and houses the best-preserved Victorian factory in the American West.
