  • Local Restaurants The Pacific Northwest is an eclectic mix of internationally influenced cuisines. Every taste from around the world is available, prepared from generations-old recipes, delivered in fine dining atmospheres. Al-Aqsa Fine Middle Eastern Cuisine in South Gateway offers the city's highest-rated Indian dishes. The baklava is astounding. For Mexican food, Plaza Morelia is located nearby in Keizer. For good old-fashioned American food, White's, located on the banks of the river, is the best choice in town. You won't find diet food here, but it's well worth the visit. A steak and a beer is a staple of our modern diet, and the home of this combo in Salem is Ram Restaurant and Brewery. If you haven't heard, Word of Mouth Neighborhood Bistro in the central district is one of the best places in the city for a romantic interlude.
  • TransportationSalem offers a variety of ways for people to get around town. While most residents own a vehicle and drive to the majority of their destinations, it is possible to live in the city and use public transportation. Anywhere within the center of the city, bus and train routes will carry you where you need to go. Where the MBTA can't go, a taxi can. Even if public transit is available for most of your activities, you might want to have a vehicle to enjoy all that the surrounding mountains have to offer.
  • Neighborhoods Salem is one of those rare gems of a city that does not have any bad neighborhoods. Almost everywhere in the city is either a commercial district or has perfectly quiet neighborhood streets. This is the kind of place where children can play outside unattended. You don't have to leave a meeting to ensure you locked your car door. Salem is safe, pleasant, and definitely on its way up. The secret, however, is out. More and more people are discovering how pleasant it is to have a quiet home at the base of the hills.
