Just west of Salem, in the heart of Oregon’s wine-growing region, are the quaint communities of Monmouth and Independence.

Antique shops, galleries and wineries welcome visitors, while an outdoor amphitheater hosts community celebrations and musical performances. Miles of bike trails along with canoeing and kayaking on the Willamette River add to the tranquility of these charming small towns.
