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.

There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of The House of the Seven Gables, explore the world behind art at Peabody Essex Museum, walk around Salem Witch Trials Memorial, and examine the collection at Salem Witch Museum.
