Also known as the ‘witch city’, Salem is notorious for being one of the most haunted cities in the United States. Found along the coast of Massachusetts, Salem has long been associated with it’s dark past involving the witch trials, which might just be the reason why this city is so full of paranormal activity. Having started as a peaceful little town, Salem quickly became infamous in 1692 when the witch hysteria swept through the city. Over 200 people were accused of participating in witchcraft and 20 innocent people were executed, including the first ‘witch’ Bridget Bishop as well as the only male victim known as Giles Corey. With a past as dark and macabre as Salem’s, it comes as no surprise that the city is filled with hot spots for paranormal activity and ghostly encounters, waiting to be explored.
I must confess, I’m not a huge fan of summer weather. It’s way too hot to go for hikes and don’t even think about going to spend the day walking around exploring a new town because you’ll be getting ‘chub rub’ in no time. When fall weather finally pokes its head out, I’m at my happiest. With the leaves changing into vibrant colors that paint the landscapes and with pumpkin everything all over the place, fall truly is a special time of year and Quebec is one of the best places to spend an autumn’s day at. There are an abundance of gorgeous places to visit in Quebec but here are the cutest villages that offer the best activities and views for a day of exploring and breathing in that crisp, fall air.
