Ghost Tours, Spooky Museums, and a Dark History Make Salem the US’ Best Halloween Destination
Visiting Salem on Halloween is a cliche, like watching A Christmas Story on Christmas. Well, much like A Christmas Story, celebrating a Salem, Massachusetts Halloween is an experience you simply never get tired of, and it has the power to put you in a festive mood all year round. Halloween in Salem is a rite of passage for anyone living in New England and should be a bucket-list trip for Halloween lovers everywhere around the country. Going to Salem is like getting on the magic bus that takes you to Halloweentown from the 1998 Disney movie, a place filled with eccentric — and sometimes frightening — characters, steeped in history, and with a charming aesthetic verging on supernatural.
