The Central location refers to its relative position to enjoy the best that Oregon, and the Pacific northwest has to offer. 45 miles from Portland, Oregon (biggest city in Oregon); 40 Miles to the coast of the Pacific Ocean, 50 miles to the Mountains--hiking, and camping in the summer time, winter activities in the.....well....winter time.

There are many fine restaurants showcasing foods, from Italy, France, Thailand, Mexico, India, China, Japan, Greek, not to mention a whole host of Pacific Northwest cuisine. Across the street, is a local farmers market and restaurant; the restaurant utilizes locally grown food, and has the best onion rings you will ever taste! Some of the best beer in the world is brewed right here in Oregon, and Salem boasts 3 micro breweries where you can experience the freshest beers you will ever taste (outside of Bavaria).
