In my last post I told you all about what makes Salem an incredible town – both back in the 1600’s when the witch trials were happening and today too. I let you know where to go, what to do and where to eat, plus filled you in on the Hocus Pocus hot spots you must see. However, one of the best parts of Salem is simply all the New England charm it has to offer. Seeing it in the fall, as all of the leaves were turning was truly BOOtiful. (Get it? It’s a Halloween town.) One of the best parts of my visit was walking around looking at the old homes. It’s such a historic town, and nearly every home has a sign on it telling when it was built and whom it was built for. Most date back to at least the 1800’s. New Englanders aren’t shy when it comes to using color on their homes, so each corner you turn leads to an unexpected visual treat. Here are just some of the homes that caught my eye and the doors that would be fun to knock on in Salem – maybe for some trick-or-treating if you happen to be there on Halloween!
Doesn’t all this charm make you want to visit New England, or at the very least paint your front door. Walking (or driving) around a town can give you lots of great inspiration for curb appeal and an appreciation for how the locals live!
