For the ultimate haunted Halloween, you must visit Salem, MA. Travelers flock from all over to visit Salem for the biggest Halloween party in America. Spooky Salem hosts haunted houses, historic landmarks, plenty of hotels and B&Bs, great restaurants, ghost tours, and a variety of other Halloween happenings.

One of our favorite Salem attractions is the House of the Seven Gables. It's the oldest surviving 17th-century mansion in New England, and it inspired Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel—not to mention admission is free! The Peabody Essex Museum is fascinating as well, and the Salem Witch Trials Memorial is a fitting tribute to visit especially during the Halloween season.
