Known for centuries as the "Witch City," Salem has redefined itself. Altough numerous witch-related attractions and shops still draw tourists, there's is much more to see and do in this historic waterfront city. The witchcraft frenzy emerged from the trials of 1692. Though the witch trials might have built Salem's historical reputation, the town's rich maritime and creative traditions played important roles in the country's development. Among its notable residents are writer Nathaniel Hawthorne and architect Samuel McIntire.
