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.
Get some historical perspective at Marginal Way Walkway and Old Burying Point Cemetery. Do some cultural sightseeing at The House of the Seven Gables and Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Salem: Exeter Historical Society (in Exeter), The Harvard Museum of Natural History (in Cambridge) and Nubble Lighthouse (in York). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Salem Witch Museum, steep yourself in history at Proctor's Ledge Memorial, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and explore the world behind art at Peabody Essex Museum.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Salem trip site.

In October in Salem, expect temperatures between 64°F during the day and 45°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
