Posted by Hillary Waldron on Fri, Oct 04, 2013

Now is the best time of year to visit Salem, Massachusettes. Salem is greatly known for theSalem Salem Witch trials of 1692, in which numerous townspeople were on trial and hung for suspected witchcraft. Because of this eerie and historic event, Salem is particularly popular during the Halloween season.

Here are a few reasons to check out Salem during the month of October:

Shops: There are a lot of small shops in the city center, most of which are themed for the spirit of Salem. It is especially fun to check out these small shops during this time of year but be mindful of store hours. Shops like Enchanted, Hex: Old World Witchery and the Scarlet Letter Press & Gallery are just a few to check out. 

Bars & Restaurants: Like Boston, there are some bars and restaurants in Salem that go all out for Halloween with decorations, costume contests and festive music! Not only is this a fun destination to go to but might serve as a nice break in between walking. In addition to the bars and restaurants, there will be a food court from October 12th to the 31st for those who want to grab something and go! 

Tours: There are multiple ghost and historical tours going on now in Salem! Some of them are 21+ but most are great for all ages! 

Events: From celebrity appearances to trick or treating to arts and crafts, this place has all the makings of an awesome night! Celebrity appearances include Heather Langenkamp from Nightmare on Elm's Street and Tony Moran, better known as Michael Myers from Halloween. Most events will be going on throughout the month.

365 things to do in boston scaring little kids halloweenIf you need me to tell you what to do today then we have some major problems... or you do anyways. It's Halloween so throw on a costume, and head on over to pretty much any place in Boston. Countless costume parties, neighborhood walk tours, children trick or treating (as well as high schoolers with curfews), and nonstop craziness at local pubs. Halloween in Boston has something for everyone. Whatever you do, don't miss it. Throw on a costume and just walk outside. You are sure to find something to do sooner than later. If you are lost for ideas than I suggest doing what I will be doing: Trick or Treating! If you have a witch hat you could even hide in the bushes and scare little kids. For some reason I feel like that will be somewhere on my agenda. Boo!!
