Salem is best known around the world for the infamous 17th century witch trials, but the local history and culture are much more expansive than that (although spooky subject matter is a huge draw for tourism here, especially around Halloween). Historic buildings have been well-preserved all over town, giving the community a very distinctive environment; many of these buildings can be seen around Salem’s highly walkable downtown area.

The town keeps a packed roster of community events, from summer concerts on Salem Common to Restaurant Week in the spring to festivals celebrating poetry, art, music, film, and more. Boston is easily reachable from your Salem apartment by road or rail, with an MBTA station on the north side of town.
