Come and explore the rich, mysterious history of one of New England's best love cities! Witch City Walking Tours' nightly 90-minute Mysteries & Hauntings tour brings to life the true stories of Salem's colorful past. A local teacher/historian guides you through the cobblestone-lined streets of this 17th century city by the glow of lantern light. Explore the driving factors behind the infamous Witch Trials Hysteria of 1692, meeting real practicing witches along the way. Learn about the rise of Salem as a world-class haunted seaport, creating some of the wealthiest families in its history. Stroll the McIntire district, taking in some of the most prominent architecture in the country on beautiful Chestnut Street. The night ends at the 1637 Burial Ground, the oldest cemetery in Salem and second oldest in the state. Acclaimed as one of Salem's "must-do tours", Witch City Walking Tours is suitable for guests of all ages.
