Town of Salem

Known as the “Witch City” and the unofficial Halloween capital of the world, Salem, Massachusetts is famous (or infamous) for its 1692 witch trials, which resulted in the execution of 19 men and women on “Gallows Hill” for the crimes of witchcraft.


With more than 300 years separating modern Salem from its year of infamy, the North Shore city has embraced its notoriety for fun and profit. A life-size bronze statue of “Samantha,” the TV witch of the popular “Bewitched” series, graces Salem common, and official vehicles carry a witch’s hat logo. In the fall, the city becomes a Halloween Mecca for the entire month of October with its popular “Haunted Happenings” attracting more than 100,000 annual visitors.


If you’re making a day trip to Salem, you have many year-round attractions from which to choose. You can study the community’s thriving maritime history at the Peabody Essex Museum, or visit the House of Seven Gables, which was the setting for native son Nathaniel Hawthorne’s novel of the same name. You can walk the cobblestone streets of Salem’s historic district, explore a colonial graveyard or embark on a 2-hour food-tasting tour of local eateries.


If you’re visiting in summer, take your choice of seven beautiful beaches or an evening dinner cruise on scenic Salem Harbor. You can spend a whole day at historic Salem Willows Park, which is home to centuries-old willow trees, green picnic areas, two public beaches, an 1866 carousel, a video arcade and several restaurants.


If your visit to Salem makes you want to stay longer, you may want to check out the housing options, which run the gamut from affordable apartments and condominiums to magnificent waterfront estates. Visit jackconway.com for all the options.
