Almost Home recommends the following summary information about the Salem OR metro area as a way to familiarize our potential temporary housing clients with the area.
Getting to Know the Area Around Salem OR Corporate Housing
Though it is the state capital, Salem is not the bustling metropolis that Portland is. This is a small, friendly town that sits halfway between Portland, which is the commercial capital of the state, and Eugene, in the south. Most of Salem lies east of the Willamette River and is home to 150,000 people who mostly live and work within the city. Salem is a one-hour drive south of Portland, which allows residents to easily connect to the rest of the world with its Airports and shipping ports.
Salem OR Business Environment
The largest employer in the city is the state government. However, Salem is also a hub for the massive agricultural produce of the Willamette Valley that is then transported up to Portland for shipping or, at times down to California along I-5 that runs right through the city. Additionally, the following educational institutions reside in Salem: Chemeketa Community College, Corban University, Eastern Oregon University, Oregon State University, Portland State University, Tokyo International University of America, Western Oregon University, and Willamette University.
Weather to Prepare for When Stepping out of Your Salem Furnished Apartment
The weather here is typical of the Pacific Northwest. The winters here are damp and mild and the summers are dry and cool. There is snowfall every year in the winter and the temperature only dips to about 35°F in January. After that, the mercury climbs to about the 60s in April and to about the low 80s in July before it tapers back down to a comfortable 60s in the fall. Always keep a jacket with you in your car or a sweater. Also, keep a waterproof jacket in the car so that you don’t get wet if it sprinkles a little, especially in the summer or fall. So, enjoy venturing out of your furnished apartment and taking in the great outdoors in this beautiful area.
