Description This tour will lead you to some of Salem's most visited sights including the historical and mythical attractions that have defined Salem. Thanks to its role in the Salem Witch Trials of 1692, the city has become a wildly popular destination each year during the month of October, when Haunted Happenings – a Halloween celebration featuring dozens of events - draws thousands to the downtown area.
