We're visiting from Portland and we love the laid back atmosphere of this town. It is a clean and friendly town!
Supporting small business downtown is a very real way to support your local community. Downtown businesses are locals, like us.
I love the quaint little boutiques.
I grew up,visiting Emelton.

You do not have to walk far for a movie or some place great to shop or workout
It's adorable and friendly. Love to visit all the shops.
We are going to be visiting Rockport for our upcoming wedding anniversary!
Community, responsiblity, friends who feel like family. Every downtown has it's own culture, something not experienced in the mall or at big box stores. Merchants are the cornerstone of our local economies.
Will be there in a week. Looks like a great town!
Very relaxing ! Nice folks on the west coast
I have not been there yet. I am planning a family outing for March.
Hoping to enjoy your downtown. This is my first trip!!!
Downtown Salem is getting better and better - love the small businesses!

The Downtown area stores are friendlier and have comparable pricing as the bigger stores. The only problem is parking and the distance you may have to walk to do your shopping.
I love Downtown because I love the beautiful historic buildings. It's a very pretty area aesthetically. I also appreciate the great variety of delicious dining within a small area. Favorites include Capers, Pomodori, Paisanos, Bricktowne Brewery, Elements Tapas bar, Porters, Larks and 4 Daughters. They are all within 4-5 blocks!
There is a lot of unique things to find.
Interesting people and shops!
