Salem, MA

Salem, Massachusetts, is a destination recognized around the world for its rich history, which includes the tragic Salem Witch Trials of 1692, the glorious maritime era that left an indelible mark on Salem through architecture, museums, and artifacts, and for its month-long celebration of Halloween.  Today Salem compliments its rich history with a vibrant schedule of festivals and events, including restaurant weeks, the Salem Arts Festival, Salem Film Fest, and – of course – Salem Haunted Happenings.  Located just 15 miles north of Boston, Salem is accessible by car, train, and seasonal ferry. http://www.salem.org/
