Salem’s harbor runs the east side of the city offering more than ten miles of coastline including a handful of islands. The commuter rail offers a half-hour trip into downtown Boston, making Salem an excellent option for big city commuters at a cheaper price. The cities of Peabody to the east and Beverly to the north gives the area a nice small tri-city presence.
The history of Salem is international after plays such as The Crucible and movies like Hocus Pocus. Beyond the infamous trials, Salem was also the home of famed author Nathaniel Hawthorne whose stories recount many different periods of Salem’s history. Check out, The House of the Seven Gables. Spread around the city are over a dozen museums and galleries preserving the city’s heritage.
Tourism has turned Salem into a true up-and-coming housing market because its economic success stays separate from the serene residential life of its citizens. The downtown shops are a great place to window-shop a bit before grabbing a bite to eat from any one of Salem’s unique restaurants, especially the Howling Wolf Taqueria or Firenze Trattoria. For families, Salem’s school district stays true to tradition, calling themselves ‘The Witches.’
