Explore Salem streets like Charter Street and Broad Street, and then check out Salem’s Howard Street Cemeteries. You’ll also visit Gallows Hill, where you can enjoy a live theater show that explores the facts and myths surrounding the town’s witch history. A variety of other witch-themed attractions, including the Witch Trials Memorial, Witch House, Witch Dungeon Museum, Witch History Museum, and Salem Witch Museum, offer plenty of opportunities to continue your witch-themed excursion.
