Salem is the capital of the U.S. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Salem: Oswald West State Park (in Cannon Beach), Yachats (Cape Perpetua Visitor Center - Siuslaw National Forest & Yachats coastline) and Soter Vineyards (in Carlton). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Multnomah Falls, don't miss a visit to The Gordon House, take in nature's colorful creations at Schreiner's Iris Gardens, and admire the verdant scenery at Sokol Blosser Winery.
