I’m a Boston girl by birth. I’ve spent the majority of my life living in and around the greater Boston area, so when I decided to settle down, it was no surprise that I chose Massachusetts. I’d never visited Salem before home hunting, but I was drawn to the energy of the North Shore’s largest city.
Most tourists come to Salem – home of the infamous witch trials – at Halloween, but I’d recommend a weekend during the summer. Not only is it MUCH less crowded and more affordable, but Salem is essentially a blue collar coastal city – complete with lobster rolls, beaches, and hearty New Englanders.
I thought I’d treat you to a photo journal of a day in the life of a Witch City resident. Most of us who live in Salem don’t hit up the tourist hot spots regularly. But since this is a travel blog, I wanted to give you the full view of my current hometown – historical homes, beachside views, and of course, “witchy” sights.
