The city of Salem, Oregon, is located on the Willamette River close to the Silver Falls State Park with its spectacular Trail of Ten Falls hiking area. Seniors who enjoy the outdoors can spend time meandering through the Rhododendron and Rose Gardens at Bush's Pasture Park or take in a free movie at the Riverfront Park Amphitheater. The Hallie Ford Museum of Art offers historical, regional and contemporary art exhibits, and music lovers can enjoy concerts by the Salem Philharmonic Orchestra. Both of these offer senior discounts. The local senior center, Center 50+, has a woodshop, computer lab and lapidary for senior use and also offers classes, book clubs and support groups. 

Moderate temperatures, ranging from 46 to 82 degrees mean being outside is pleasant year-round, and the Cherriots Shop and Ride program provides door-to-door transit service for seniors, so getting around is easy.
