I will be doing a series of posts highlighting some of my favorites sights and things to do when I visited Salem, Massachusetts last October. Salem was an experience unlike any other town. The macabre history of the hysteria and horror that was that was the Salem Witch Trials seems to be ever present throughout the town. It’s incredible to think an event like that is what helped to set the civility and due processes we have today. As you stroll among the quaint shops and streets you also feel that you, yourself have stepped back into time and are looking upon the same structures, buildings, trees and seaside that settlers before also looked upon. It’s a true connection to history – and a haunting one at that.
Welcome to Salem…I’ve highlighted some of the sights I recommend in no particular order!
