I have been coming to Salem Willows since I was a child, I later came as a teen with friends (And boyfriends) and now I visit with my husband and grown children. Cappy's had the best onion rings. Hobbs has the best popcorn. If you have small children, walk them to the pier to see what the fishermen have caught,... More

I've been dying to come here!! This was where my parents went on their first date. My 15 year old son couldn't wait to come and visit the arcade. He loved the old games and they had plenty of new ones too. We went on the antique carousel from1866. It is so beautiful. It is a well known place for... More

Grew up in Salem, brought my kids here when they were young, fun for everyone. Skee ball in the arcades, chop suey at Lowes, popcorn and icecream at Hobbs, walk on the pier and eat your cone, stroll around the lovely park and look at the boats and admire the willow trees and head home. A perfect afternoon for everyone!

Salem Willows is a step back in time. If you want to get away from the witchery that is downtown Salem, a five minute drive past the House of the Seven Gables will meet your needs. Nice spots to sit under old shade trees and enjoy Beverly Harbor vistas. Grassy areas for kids to run around away from traffic. Good... More

The beach was so tiny and filled with crap. The whole place was old and outdated. Good for tiny kids, but that's about it. Not worth visiting otherwise. Disappointed.

Video games, merry-go-round, waterfront, and great popcorn & ice cream. It's a nice mixture of games, outside space, and water. They have lots of places for sitting down and enjoying the fresh salty air.

Fun time with good snacks. You can walk around morning, noon and night and have a pleasant stroll. Always something good to eat and games to play. Kiddies love the rides.

If you like popcorn then try the popcorn place at the end. Its a nice cheap place to bring kids but the popcorn is why I come here.

Still a great spot to kill a few hours or an entire day. Arcades, a few rides for the kids, good food stands. Went there with my family as a child. Go there now with my granddaughter. Famous Chop Suey sandwiches and Hobbs Popcorn stand is still the best popcorn ever!
