Historic Salem is one of New England’s most well-known and visited cities.  Known for its rich history, and the infamous Witch Trials of 1692, the Seaport city is a destination for travelers of all ages. While much of Salem’s identity is still derived from the witch trials, the city also offers residents and year-round visitors a great variety of dining and cultural attractions.
