Which is a better choice to visit Salem, Sept or Nov?

I`m really not into crowds so I`m avoiding Salem in October. I do want to visit during the fall though. Does anyone know if the attractions are open in September and November?

salem is a year-round destination. It can get cold in November & any water-based activities most likely will be closed for the season. I`d choose sept

I agree that September is probably the better choice. In addition to the cruises, a few activities like Cry Innocent and Pioneer Village will end in October. September will not be crowded.

A third vote for September, and if you go on a weekday rather than the weekend, there will be even fewer people.

I`m not planning on any water activities.

I`m really looking to do all the tourist witch base attractions.

Some shopping, a reading things like that.

Do you know if any of the tourist attractions are open on a Saturday night and a Sunday?

I don't think you'll find attractions open on Saturday night, but some tours will run; perhaps some of the witch-themed attractions are open. Most everything is open on Sunday. You may find the following websites helpful:
