Map of Salem, MA

Welcome to Salem, MA!

The name Salem conjures up vivid imagery of witchcraft due to the notoriety of the witch trials of 1692. In reality, this episode in the city's history was quite short—only seven months—but will forever be the first thing that the city is recognized for. Well aware of its infamy, Salem has a number of attractions that lean towards the ghoulish. The Salem Witch Village uncovers details of the witch trials and the Witch Dungeon Museum features professional actors re-enacting a trial. Salem offers more than just the macabre, however, as the city is also home to the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, a museum that commemorates the rich nautical history of New England. Salem Willows, an admission-free amusement park, is a popular hangout for families and features an 1866 carousel, food vendors, a fishing pier and a beach. Guided walking tours are abundant in Salem, giving visitors a chance to learn about the city's peculiar past.
