Condos would be a very bad idea.
Darn yuppies!

Me and the wife will be in Salem April 25, 26, 27. It's been almost 4 years since the last visit. I'm interested to see if any thing has changed. When we were there something was being conctructed.

Maybe we'll see you around somewhere ;)

If your in Salem, more than likely you'll see me somewhere! LOL. Do you know where you're staying yet? Do you have plans for your stay. I'm working those nights but maybe we could meet for lunch, if you and your wife would like to e mail me. Dolphinluv58@aol.com

Dodi,

Meeting up for lunch you'd be fun. As for plans....

We'll obviously be doing some ghost hunting. We'll probably take the Vampire and Ghost Walking tour( we missed that one last time) Do some shopping, maybe a whale watch if it's open, check out the Peabody Essex museum(also missed that last time), see if I can find another $10 sweatshirt(what a bargain), and what ever else tickles our fancy.

I'll e-mail and we can chat more :)

Woo Hoo my 50th post. I'm a junior Villager now. What a momentous occasion :D

Salem is a beautiful city. Everyone forgets that the House of the Seven Gables is there. That is a very interesting tour. I do love the history of Salem especially the Witch Trials, etc. Thats the main attraction I guess.

That's really interesting. I'll need to check that out. My husband and I will be visiting the east coast, for the first time, in August. The son of a life long friend is getting married in Colchester VT, so we will take our camper there for the wedding and vacation several weeks to a month to see the coast.

Any pointers for a first time visitor?

If your going to stay in Salem with a camper Try out Winter Island. It's no frills but pretty cheap and near Salem Willows and most attractions. Nice little Lighthouse and an old Fort on the land too. Real interesting place. Was used during the Civil War and upto the Second World War as a Base for the Coast Guard. I beilieve they're redoing the Plane Hangers now, and were suppose to be starting reconstuction on the officers quaters soon. There are old underground tunnles (long ago closed off to a point) and an old jail from the Civil War that you can't go into any more but still has the iron gate you can look into.

There is plenty of parking and a picnic area and a playground also.

I have always wanted to visit Salem and still hope to, hope this place will still be kept as it is when i eventually visit.
I have always been interested in the witch history of Salem, that was until i learned the scientific explanation for all these witch trials across the world,

It was on a documentary, in which they pin pointed, that all the renound places on the world map for witch trials, found that low and behold all these towns seemed to harvest the same crop( dont remember what this crop was)

It was found that in certain months of the year when the weather made it humid and sticky, that a fungus grew on the crops, this fungus has been found in later years, and was found to contain LSD, trips, acid. They believe because the locals and people from surrounding areas ate this crop, they had the sympyoms of being off their head, therefore seeing things that werent there,
hallucinating, sometimes so paranoid and thinking they were possessed.
This then give explaination to people blaming these symptoms on WITCHES AND WITCHCRAFT that is why so many innocent people were killed.

I imagine that salem is very haunted so many lives taken before thier time.
I LOVE U ALL
