Awesome Reasons to Visit Salem This Halloween ...

Salem is an amazing city ๐ŸŒƒ and I have had the honor of calling Salem somewhat home. I've been in the Northeast for almost seven 7๏ธโƒฃ years now and I am still amazed and in awe of this particular city. October is the month ๐Ÿˆท๏ธ for Salem, it lights up, the energy is different, the way that the people ๐Ÿšป are is different. Sure, I can complain about the traffic and how long it takes to get places but Salem is absolutely magical ๐Ÿ”ฎ in this month ๐Ÿˆท๏ธ and I'm going ๐Ÿ†™ to share with you why.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Cry Innocent: the People ๐Ÿšป versus ๐Ÿ†š Bridget Bishop

Firstly, if you are looking for something to do this Halloween ๐Ÿ‘ป and you want to see a play โ–ถ๏ธ that is not only fun but interactive too? It starts in the town square, where they arrest ๐Ÿ‘ฎ๐Ÿฟ Bridget and then they drag her back ๐Ÿ”™ to the Town Hall. It is so much fun, everyone is in character ๐Ÿˆš the entire time ๐Ÿ•ค and it is inexpensive too. This is a must-do if you head ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿฝ to Salem this October or even on ๐Ÿ”˜ Halloween ๐Ÿ‘ป specifically.


Haunting ๐Ÿ‘ป Carnival

Salem is a small but mighty city ๐ŸŒ‡ and the carnival ๐ŸŽ  that happens on ๐Ÿ”› Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ is so much fun! There are rides, there are people ๐Ÿ‘ฅ walking ๐Ÿ‘ฃ around in costumes, there is music ๐ŸŽท everywhere you turn ๐ŸŽฒ and there are vendors on ๐Ÿ”˜ every single 1๏ธโƒฃ street corner. This is the time ๐Ÿ•– that the city ๐ŸŒ‡ comes alive, as I told you before and the carnival ๐ŸŽก is so much fun for kids. Want a family-friendly piece of Salem? This is it!


The Costumes

You have no ๐Ÿ™… idea, there are so many different costumes out there, Salem really brings it when it comes to the holiday. Everyone dresses up, from the shop ๐Ÿช owners to the restaurant people ๐Ÿšธ all the way to the people ๐Ÿšธ that attend ๐ŸŽซ the events. The parade is amazing and I have to tell you, it's worth it to see the work ๐Ÿˆบ that people ๐Ÿšป put into the costumes on ๐Ÿ”› Halloween.


The Culture

I have to tell you, I've been to Salem when it isn't Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ and when it is and the culture ๐Ÿ‘˜ is so different on ๐Ÿ”˜ Halloween ๐Ÿ‘ป or even the month ๐Ÿˆท๏ธ of October. The shops ๐Ÿฌ are all open, they shop ๐Ÿช owners are so friendly, everyone will direct ๐Ÿ” you wherever you want to go and the culture ๐Ÿ‘˜ of the witches is so thick. The history here ๐Ÿˆ is incredible and I have to tell you, it's worth a visit.


The Food

I could talk โ˜Ž๏ธ about the food ๐Ÿก all day โ˜€๏ธ in Salem. The restaurants are absolutely incredible, from the Lobster Shanty all the way to anything on ๐Ÿ”› Pickering Wharf. There are so many restaurants that you should try and you also should leave extra room for all of the fair food ๐Ÿฃ that you'll want to stuff in your face.


Haunted Footsteps ๐Ÿ‘ฃ Ghost ๐Ÿ‘ป Tour

Want to really understand the history in Salem? Want to possibly see some ghosts? This is the tour that you'll have to go on. I went on ๐Ÿ”› one 1๏ธโƒฃ when I was just a year into living ๐Ÿก in the Northeast and it was so much fun! We did not see any ghosts, but we did come back ๐Ÿ”™ later that week and we took pictures ๐Ÿ“ท at the Old Burial Ground cemetery and โ€ฆ we found some ghosts. These tours are fantastic for the history and to really learn ๐Ÿ“• about all of the spots that ghosts could be.


Salem Witch Museum

Finally, this is the one 1๏ธโƒฃ museum that I fell in love ๐Ÿ’™ with. Salem is a tourists town, so keep that in mind but there is one 1๏ธโƒฃ thing that is touristy โ€ฆ but still amazing. The Salem Witch Museum is a must-see when you come to Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ and while you might wait in line, it's totally worth it in the end!

So, now that you've got the local's point โฌ‡๏ธ of view ๐Ÿ”ฌ on ๐Ÿ”› where to go and why to come to Salem, you're booking your ticket ๐ŸŽซ right ๐Ÿ‘‰ now, right? Do it!

Feedback Junction

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

The Salem Witch Museum charges admission and cameras are not allowed. The weekend before Halloween traffic is pretty bad so itโ€™s best taking

the T and if youโ€™re on a bus the delay can be about 30 minutes. It tends to be chilly out there due to being close to the ocean. Enjoy.
