Things To Do
Great place to go out and enjoy a beautiful Salem day, or better yet, a sunset. The new bridge connecting Riverfront Park to Minto-Brown lights up at night and is a wonder to see in person. I like to go here to relax, look at stars, or just go for a walk around the paths. Salem has many yearly events and cultural festivals that take place at the park.

If you’re here in the summer, make sure to check out the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes! The local Single-A short season baseball team is the minor-league introduction for members of the San Francisco Giants farm system. Notable alumni include Tim Lincecum, Pablo Sandoval, and Buster Posey. Tickets are usually less than $10, making this a fun and inexpensive way to spend a summer night in the Willamette Valley.

Silver Falls is the largest state park in Oregon, and includes 24 miles of hiking trails. The main trail passes by 10 different awe-inspiring waterfalls, and 4 of these falls have trails that allow you to walk behind them. The best day to go is a rainy fall day, but the area is gorgeous and accessible year round. The park is about 20 minutes of driving away from Salem.

Lincoln City is a cute and cozy coastal town and hour west of Salem. Make sure to stop by Mo’s for the best clam chowder this side of Boston. Beware though! In Oregon, the beaches are not warm! Bring layers, come on out, and enjoy a relaxing day on the beach. Perhaps even by a camp fire.

Hibachi grill off of Lancaster. Better than Benihana’s for half the price. I have my birthday dinner here every year because it’s my favorite place in town! I usually get filet mignon, but there’s not a single bad thing to order here.

An amazing local Korean food place. Daily lunch specials for $7 that are way too filling, fantastic sushi, and of course Bibimbap. The owners live in our neighborhood and are extremely friendly and philanthropic. This is my absolute favorite local business to support as the food and people are both great.

Political City
Salem is the state Capitol and has political extremists of the left and right. With the current hotbed climate, it is probably best to avoid talking politics in public.
