WICKED SALEM TOUR: Something wicked this way comes ...

With a nod to Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" and Salem's bevy of literary giants like Nathaniel Hawthorne, join "Ghosts of Salem: Haunts of the Witch City" author Sam Baltrusis on a literary-themed jaunt through historic Salem.

The 60-minute walking tour will start and end and Wicked Good Books located 215 Essex Street. Known for its annual Halloween “Haunted Happenings” gathering, it’s no surprise that the historic Massachusetts seaport’s blood-stained history has often been overshadowed by the witch trials of 1692 and is sensationalized in pop culture.

The tour aims to accurately give a voice to the victims—and the villains—associated with the horror known as the Salem witch trials. Will history repeat itself? Salem's witch hysteria past continues to be the ultimate cautionary tale.

The Wicked Salem Tour runs Saturdays and Sundays 3 p.m. through October.

Scored a Groupon? Spooktacular! Each tour has a limited number of slots so we strongly recommend scheduling your tour sooner rather than later. You can book your own tour using the 8-letter Groupon code on your voucher and entering it into the "promotional code" section upon checkout. Or, email us at so we can book your tour manually.

"Paranormal Provincetown" by author Sam Baltrusis

Known as the spot where the Pilgrims first set foot on Cape Cod in 1620, it's no surprise that Provincetown, Massachusetts, is a hotspot for tourists as well as hauntings―including over twenty historic, crime, nightlife, overnight, secret, and Truro haunts. Take a stroll along Commercial Street where the historic Lancy mansion is allegedly haunted by an old woman who died in the late 1800s, but due to the frozen ground, she couldn't be buried, so her son kept her propped up at an open window all winter long. Learn about the historic "Black Flash" of Provincetown―a grim reaper-type beast that would snatch children away in the 1930s. From the historic maritime-themed buildings lining Commercial Street to the shores of the Provincetown Harbor, it is clear that there is hardly a corner of the tip of Cape Cod where the paranormal cannot be experienced.
