Thanks for considering my place for your next trip or vacation! I look forward to hosting you. I teach senior fitness, and can recommend a lot of wonderful places to walk, swim, or rent a kayak nearby. I also love reading and gardening, and can point you to a private library with a back garden that is open to the public. Live music is a favorite, and one thing that's really special about Salem, is you don't have to be young to feel comfortable going out. A 90 year-old neighbor and a bunch of her friends go out to hear live music every Thursday! There really is something fun for everyone here in Salem.
