Salem, Oregon is the capital of the state, so you’ll find monuments, museums and other significant sites downtown. An exciting city that’s appealing in all seasons, especially when flowers are blooming in the spring and leaves are turning a fiery orange in the fall, it’s a destination in the northwest that’s definitely worth a visit. Conveniently located just one hour from the dramatic rocky coast, and a stone’s throw from the world-class Willamette wine region, Salem might just be more perfect than you’d thought. If we’ve inspired you to stop through, here are the best Airbnbs.
