Great to visit and drop by, however I'd consider this as a tourist trap if you visited without doing prior research... cemetery is located at a few steps from the entrance and can be enjoyed at your own leisure time (with caution to the hours of open). We were in and out in the whole area within 1.5 hours and... More

I have been to New York and San Francisco for Halloween but nothing beats Salem! This is the only place in the country (and maybe the planet) that celebrates the most awesome Halloween event. They shut down the entire village from car traffic and people of different ages walk around in costume. Some people don't wear costumes and just love... More

This is the best, friendly location to visit on Halloween! Park outside of town for easy access. There is traffic, but with patience, all will be fine. Crowds were pleasant and well controlled. Strong police presence is appreciated! We did not stay to late, it was mostly families and couples. A real TREAT!

We were visiting Boston and decided to spend Halloween in Salem, the town of witches. It was about a 40 min drive. We had a lot of fun seeing big crowds in their Halloween costumes.

We've been to Salem several times now (we're even playing around with the idea of moving there). And what remain true for every visit is that this is the first and last place we go when we arrive and before we leave. It really is the central hub of everything else in the town, both around Halloween and in the... More

It was packed and we didn't get to see much but there was definitely plenty to do. There are tons of shops worth exploring and so much witchcraft merch you could explode. Definitely a must see if you're interested in this kind of stuff. There were plenty of signs for palm and tarot card readings. Plenty of food and drink... More

There were so many shops, with so many interesting things, stones, books, lotions, clothes and much more. It is a tourist trap though.

Cool place to get the local vibe. There are small shops all related to "witching" in some way. Some paces are more costly but that can be seen anywhere. There were local musicians playing in the streets and anything "salem" can be found here. Go explore and support local shops..the cost is worth keeping small venues like this in business!

Essex Street isn't the only place to find great shopping, attractions and good eats in Salem! Make sure to visit this area and see the historical attractions in this section of town! Plenty to do, see and eat!
