Witch City

Best known for its 1692 witch trials, Salem has a number of significant historical sites, a bustling downtown, and many witch-themed attractions. Aside from its infamous past of supposed sorcery, Salem was one of the most important seaports in early America, and was at the center of the clipper-ship trade with the Far East. The city’s historical harbor provides those on vacation with a glimpse into its seafaring heritage. Downtown boasts a large number of restaurants, cafes, and a wide variety of stores, including a multitude of Wiccan and Halloween-themed shops, boutiques, galleries, delis, and more. Salem is in Massachusetts (MA). To arrange what you want to do in Salem, use our United States trip maker site .
