Welcome To The Town Where Halloween Lasts All Year Long

Posted on Other Stuff 17

It’s, of course, the infamous witch trials that made Salem’s name known to the world and to this day the town attracts tourists as the spookiest town in The United States where Halloween never ends.

Everything in town is associated with witches: the local police cars have witch logos on them, the public elementary school is known as Witchcraft Heights, and even the high school athletics teams are names “Witches”, so no wonder that the towns biggest holiday is Halloween that last year attracted over 250 000 visitors.

Whether you’re panning on going there on October 31st or in the middle of May, be sure to check out the local Witch House as it is the only place in town with direct links to the witch trials. It is the former home of one of the judges and it will introduce you to the XVII’s century’s culture. The Salem Witch Museum is also a sight to see if you want to know more about the event that made the town famous.

Even though satanism isn’t the same as Wicca, Salem is a home to an international headquarters of the Satanic Temple that was opened here just last year, so if you’re eager to see how Baphomet sculpture looks like in real life, make sure to get your ticket. Stopping by the local occult shops to get your tarot cards is almost an essential part of the tour too or you’re invited to choose the haunted house experience, if you’re looking for something spookier.
