Salem Car Rentals & Travel Guide

Salem is the capital city of Oregon and sits right in the center of the Willamette River Valley, one of the northwestern United States most beautiful areas. It's also located about 50 miles from Portland, Oregon. Salem is a thriving and beautiful city known for its vast parks and great hiking and outdoor adventures. It's filled with a wide variety of restaurants and nightlife options, and there are even plenty of fantastic hotels in Salem.

Driving in Salem

Look into Salem car rentals before you head out on your trip – you'll definitely want a car to explore the beautiful surroundings! You can fly into Portland, about an hour outside of Salem, and then enjoy the lovely drive south along Interstate 5. Salem rental cars tend to be pretty cheap, so pick one up at the airport to make your travel plans even easier. The city is only an hour from the Cascade mountains on the east and an hour to the gorgeous ocean beaches to the west – both drives are stunning and you end up with spectacular views either way.

Exploring Salem

In the city itself, you'll find historic sites, museums, and events ranging from sports tournaments to art fairs, as well as theater and music. The downtown is vibrant and eclectic, filled with colorful storefronts and cute local stores, and there are dozens of lovely parks scattered throughout the city. It's also worth it to visit the historic district, where you'll find the best examples of the beautiful architecture in the city. Car rentals in Salem are easy to come by and will give you a chance to explore the green pastures, flower fields, gardens, vineyards, and everything else this wonderful city has to offer!
