The 1692 Salem witch trials were a sad and tragic time in our history. 22 innocent people were put to death after malicious accusations of witch craft.

They are selling the hype of the witch trail here. The two main cobblestone streets are filled with witchy shops, but they neglect to tell you that only the trials were held in "Salem"... The witches came from neighboring towns. If you are there for the history you will need to venture out a bit.

Had a wonderful time at the Witch Village. Tons of shops and eateries. We saw several street performers, who gave photo ops. It was fun browsing in all of the different businesses.

They have capitalized on the Salem Witch Trials and it was fun and enjoyable. You can walk into the shops, purchase different items if you want.

Every shop sells witchcraft items which I didn't enjoy seeing. I did want to go because of the history of the place. All souvenirs are expensive as is the food.

Information learned here was actually quite interesting and valuable. However it was incredibly small and the guided tour only took about 15 minutes. And it should've been half the price for what it was.

Amanda was a fabulous tour guide with real stories about what really happened in Salem and stories about our Halloween traditions - lots of great visual displays - lasted about 30 minutes - tours every 1/2 hour - buy ticket package that includes wax museum - saves money.
