Salem has tons to offer, some things more expensive than others. So today on the blog I have five things to do in the witch city for $10.00 or less. Just a few ideas for enjoying Salem without breaking the bank.

Tour The Witch House
“In 1675, Jonathan Corwin, heir to one of the largest Puritan fortunes in New England, purchased this
large and stately house. Seventeen years later,Corwin and his family would take part in the most
famous Witch Hunt in American History.
Tours of the Corwin House, now known as the Witch House, connect elements of everyday life with the
events punctuating history’s timelines.
Through examination of family life, architecture and furniture of the seventeenth century, visitors
gain a deeper comprehension of the people involved in the Witch Trials and an enriched
understanding of America’s colonial heritage.”
Price: Self guided adult tour: $8.25 | Guided adult tour: $10.25
Grab the kiddos and take the Salem Kids Tour
“I developed the tour because I saw the need for high-quality, affordable activities for children and families in Salem that are not too scary or intense for younger visitors. This tour is best for children ages five and up, and their families. I keep the group small so that the little ones can see and hear and everyone can have a great time.”
Use THIS GROUPON to score discounted tokens for Bit Bar
“Hailed by Eater, Boston magazine, and The Boston Herald, Bit Bar Salem gives guests a chance to relive their childhood. Each night the space is abuzz with the ping and whir of iconic arcade games, ranging from Pinball to Ms. Pac Man and Donkey Kong. But this isn’t your average arcade. It’s busy bar slings spirits from local distillers such as Short Path Distillery, Ryan & Wood, and Privateer, frosty local brews, and signature cocktails, each named after popular game characters.
Bit Bar Salem’s kitchen is known for their mouthwatering bites with a nostalgic twist. For instance, braised pork belly walking tacos are served atop a bed of Cool Ranch Doritos. Another signature dish is their elk burger, served with smoked cheddar and bacon atop a doughnut/croissant hybrid.”
Price: $5 for $10 worth of tokens or $9 for $22 worth of tokens
Enjoy the warming weather with a drink at Far From the Tree Hard Cider
“Far From The Tree originally started with three varieties of its dry ciders: Roots, Rind and Sprig. Since opening their tasting room in August 2015 the cider makers have concocted dozens of new ciders for you to enjoy!”
Price: Everything on tap as of the publish date of this blog is less $10/glass.
