The witching hour is almost upon us mateys and we are getting in the spooky spirit by looking up holidays to some of the most Halloween-esque places in the world! One of our favourites is Salem, Massachusetts, home to the famous witch trials of the 1600's.
As it's only 30 minutes from Boston, we recommend booking a double-dip holiday (Boston and Salem) and we've put together a package that starts from just £480* per person, based on 2 sharing.
It includes 3 nights in Boston, 1 night in Salem and return flights from London with Norwegian (so flights are direct)! It's valid in November and December (so not Halloween season) but Salem is spooky all year round!

About your stay
For this holiday, we have opted for 3 nights in Boston and 1 night in the famous witch city of Salem, however it is totally flexible and you can amend your duration whichever way you please. You may even prefer to do Salem as a day trip, which is totally doable as its only 30 minutes away by train.
For your Boston hotel, we opted for the Sheraton Boston Hotel which is in Back Bay area, a perfect base for sightseeing and exploring (Fenway Park is an easy 20 minute walk away, as is Boston Common). The hotel has a great rooftop pool with retractable roof, plus there are heaps of great bars and restaurants nearby.
In Salem, we picked a hotel right in the centre of town. The Hotel Salem is half a mile from the Peabody Essex Museum, and there are a number of famous witch museums and sites all around the town. As it's on coastal New England, we also throughly recommend you have a bowl of clam chowder or a lobster roll while you are in the area.
Salem is just half an hour north of Boston by train, which run frequently. It costs approx. £3-£7 per person, each way and you can book in advance or buy on the day. Alternatively, you could get a car. Use our car comparison tool to check out the best available rates.
