Salem is the capital city of Oregon, a state in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The Willamette River runs through Salem and the city of Portland is only a short car trip away. Expats with children will have plenty of educational institutions to choose from, as Salem is home to many public elementary and secondary schools, boarding schools, universities and colleges. The largest employer in Salem is the state government, but the city is also a centre for agriculture and food processing. Many exciting cultural events are held throughout the year, including the Oregon State Fair, the Salem Film Festival and the annual World Beat Festival. The summer months are dry and the winter months bring light snow, rainfall and cloudy skies.
