Things To Do In Salem – The Guide



Thank you for your interest in my guide! Things To Do In Salem – The Guide is a project ten years in the making. After wandering the gorgeous uneven brick streets for as many years as I have, the recommendations, travel tips, event info and more began to accumulate. After surpassing the point of looking like a tourist, even with a camera in my hand, I decided it was time to try to help others see Salem the way I do, to help others plan a successful trip into a wonderful city. This website came from that desire and this guide is a branch of that endeavor.

What is inside the guide?


The beginning portion is event info for the months of October, November and December of 2017. The guide will be published quarterly and is best used in tandem with this website. Major city events are covered within the guide and other local events are published to this website and calendar as the information becomes available. Since the month of October is VERY busy in Salem, there is a heavy focus on October events in this publication. The preview below is only two pages of the Oct. events.

A guide to Halloween in Salem

I published a blog on my website about a year ago going over tips and tricks for experiencing Halloween in Salem and I have chosen to include it in this guide as well.

The last pages of the guide are a directory of accommodations, shopping, restaurants, attractions, etc. This info is also available on my website, however the guide is color coded with a corresponding map to help you visualize which businesses are closer together than others.
