Salem is a small city on Massachusetts' north shore about 40 minutes north of Boston. The city has a long history dating back to early colonial settlements. Most notable in the city's history are the Salem Witch Trials of the 1690's in which courts ruled whether or not community members were practicing witchcraft. Some 20 citizens were executed.
With such a strong history, it's only right that the city has excellent museums. The Salem Witch Museum and Peabody Essex Museum are the two best. The Salem Voodoo Vampires and Ghosts Walking Tour is also a popular activity.
The best time to visit Salem is in October when the temperatures are cool, the leaves are changing colors and the whole town is in the Halloween spirit.
