Salem totally owns Halloween... because, you know, witches. And really old, really haunted houses. Put on your Ghostbusters costume and take the commuter rail (DON’T drive) up to Witch City for their month-long festival, Haunted Happenings. Here are five reasons to join the fright club (but obviously not talk about it... in fact, we've said too much):
It's been a bustling month here in Salem, and and we're not even close to finished.
There are TWO FULL WEEKS of Haunted Happenings to go - and with temperatures up and the sun shining, we couldn't be happier! Salem is certainly a special place in October for locals and tourists alike, although possibly for different reasons...
Do you really need an excuse to visit Salem for Haunted Happenings?
Well, if you do, read up.
And don't miss our Boo's Cruise, "for over-21s who crave another excuse to wear their Halloween costumes and release their inner party animals."
From our kick-off weekend, some shots from our Haunted Harbor Cruise. It was a beautiful day, and we're predicting many more to come! Join us for family-friendly face painting, tarot card readings, and spooky stories as we gently cruise the shores of Salem Sound.
