For once we wanted to do something really fun and special for my favorite holiday, so we planned to go to the witch capital of Salem for a truly spooky , festive Halloween! Halloween in Salem has been called the " Mardi Gras of the north" so we knew we were in for a party!
We have just returned from our 2nd annual Halloween trip to Salem. It was once again fantastic. We visited some places we hadn't gone before, and returned to some old favorites, updates are on the way!
Well known for the witchcraft trials of 1692, Salem has a foreboding past. the town itself remains very historical with many old buildings remaining to explore, including the house made famous by Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel, The House of the Seven Gables.
