Visit the World's Most Bewitching Seaport

Salem, Massachusetts is home to a world of enchantment, history, and culture found nowhere else on Earth. Follow the narrow streets of the Witch City and discover unique shops, award-winning restaurants, haunting and historic sites, and a world-class art museum. Travel through time as you tour the city’s charming Colonial and Federalist architecture, explore our rich maritime heritage or learn about the infamous Witch Trials of 1692.


We’re a great place for day-trippers, but you may want to stay longer at one of our welcoming hotels, inns, and other fine accommodations. Either way, you’ll create the most magical memories. Book early for October, for our Halloween season lasts all month!


Visit a unique shopping destination where Newbury Street meets Diagon Alley. Where else can you find hand-crafted jewelry, gothic clothing, whimsical T-shirts, chocolates, Tarot cards, pottery, kitchen witches, holistic herbs, fine art and enjoy a fabulous meal all in one trip?


Explore our attractions, museums, and tours for an eye-opening expedition into history. Discover the truth behind the trials. Learn about seafaring pirates, see maritime treasures, get a psychic reading, ride a real Trolley, and meet modern-day Witches.


When you finish your day of shopping and exploring, relax at one of our fantastic restaurants. Whether you’re in the mood for fresh seafood, casual cuisine, Japanese, Italian, Thai, Indian or Mexican, we are the North Shore’s best spot for great dining.

And best of all, we’re easy to get to by car, train, bus, and even boat—we have our own ferry and are only 24 minutes from Boston on the T. So, however you plan to visit, plan on having the most magical time of your life!
