When anyone mentions the city of Salem, the first thing that springs to mind is generlaly the Salem Witch Trials. Of course, this historic place in Massachusetts is mysterious and this is why it attracts over one million tourists every year. Yet, there is more than just ghost and witch tours in Salem. In fact, this coastal city is the birthplace of the National Guard and has a rich maritime heritage that it is waiting to share with visitors.
One of the top things to do is visit the Salem Witch Museum, which tells the story of the witch trails in 1692 and the Witch Dungeon Museum even has a witch trial re-enactment for you to experience history. The House of the Seven Gables is a historic home that has become famous because of the Gothic novel by Nathaniel Hawthorne. This house was his inspiration and now it is a museum where you can wander around one of the oldest wood mansions from the 17th century. To learn more about Salem’s maritime history, the Peabody Essex Museum showcases art, as well as the largest collection of Asian export art in the world.
To be in the heart of Salem, you can choose one of the inns or hotels that are located downtown. This will allow you to enjoy the atmosphere of this historic town and accommodation is comfortable for your stay.
One of the best times to visit Salem in all of its glory is during October and over Halloween. In honour of this frightful time of year, there is lots of fun at the Haunted Happenings Festival and special witch tours and events. The Salem Arts Festival is also held in June every year, celebrating art and culture, while the Maritime Festival is enjoyed during the month of August.
