Fall Weather Survival Checklist

Every day of fall in New England is like a surprise. One day, you can stroll around the town in a
sweatshirt and jeans, taking in the warm sun on your skin, and watch the light breeze blow through the
rusted orange leaves. Other days, winter comes early and no amount of hot apple cider can warm you
up. On average the weather can range between 62 and 45 degrees, which means you’ll need to come
prepared when you visit us in October. The key to making it through the fall is always the layers and small
accessories people always forget. That’s why we’ve created a list of some must haves to get you
through your fall trip!

  • Fall Jacket 
  • Light Winter Jacket
  • Rain Coat

  • Sweatshirts 
  • Thermal Shirts
  • Jeans
  • Leggings or Long Johns for layering
  • Boots (Great for when it rains & easy to get thick socks under)

Odds and Ends
  • Gloves 
  • Scarf (I love the blanket scarves that you can wear like a blanket when it’s cold!)
  • Hat (Beanie, headband, anything to keep your ears warm!)
  • Thick Socks
  • Hand/Toe Warmers

In Salem, August is Practically Autumn

October in Salem is one of the most magical times of the year. The leaves change colors to
beautiful golden yellows and burnt oranges. The fall air gets the kind of crisp that bites your
nose in just the right way when you inhale. People flood onto the streets to enjoy the open air
markets, food trucks, and attractions. The smells of hot chocolate and apple cider donuts drift
down Essex street, wrapping you in the warm scent as you wander from store to store, collecting
all of the hidden treasures and trinkets the city has to offer. 

If you’re joining us for the fall season, you’ll be apart of the Witch City’s magic too. You’ll be apart
of the over 1 million people that come through Salem every October to get a glimpse into a world
where there’s a little bit of Halloween every day of the year. October in Salem turns into what feels
like a big party in the streets; however, when 1 million people all come to a city for a similar
experience, unfortunately things can get crowded and they sell out quickly. That’s why it’s
important to start planning early, and this is the time to do it.

Fortunately, you can buy tickets to a lot of the experiences online. Tickets to most walking and
trolley tours can be bought off of the shop or company’s website. You can even buy tickets to
museums online and cash in on bundle deals and early bird specials. You can also check our
events calendar for special classes and workshops that are being held by different stores in town
and secure your place now. Happy planning!

Keeping You Connected to Salem 365

Thank you all who have joined me on the first 31 days of the #salemma365 project.

If your still asking what this is all about ... well I have simply decided we all need Salem, MA in our lives daily.

Some of us are fortunate enough to live close by and can enjoy Salem's beauty year-round.  Some have the pleasure to visit a few times a year and many only once.  For some Salem is still a dream destination.

Social media is so great that it allows us to stay connected around the world at all times!

Yes, I know my page says Haunted Happenings Magazine and it's primary focus was just the magazine for October.  Times change and I love technology.  (not to worry, the magazine is still being printed each Oct.)  I have listened while many have asked for more!  So here goes... at least a post a day on Instagram / Facebook.  Depending what's going on or if I'm attending an event, you will get more.

That being said, don't forget to watch my stories!  Yes, the stories feature on both facebook & instagram will allow some behind the scenes into my personal life, work life and Salem!

I do have accounts on Twitter / Pinterest and Snapchat.  However, most of my loyal active followers are present on Instagram and Facebook.  I have enjoyed the relationships professionally and personally over social media.  I hope as this grows so will the relationships.

Please if you're not already following me or if your friends aren't ... click the share, like or follow button.  Send me a direct message and tell me where you're from and what you miss or want to see more of about Salem, MA.

I can't thank you all enough for being such great followers and friends! Thanks for joining me on this 365 journey.  Salem is so much more than Halloween in October!
