Howard Street Cemetery, Salem, MA There is a legend about this cemetery that you never leave this cemetery by same way you entered. If you didn't do this, the ghost of a captain would follow you home. What made it really hard was that the only way in or out is not by a gate but by slogging your way up a hill. The Howard Street Cemetery is located beside the old Salem jail.

Formerly the Lyceum Restaurant, 43 Church was built on the site of an accused witch’s apple orchard. Bridget Bishop was the first witch to be executed in the infamous Salem Witch Trails, and now the scent of apples reportedly drifts through the restaurant, even when the fruit isn’t on the menu. Staff and guests also report a heavy feeling at 43 Church, and the restaurant has been featured on a few paranormal investigation shows. 43 Church Street Salem, MA 01970 978-745-7665

SALEM — Eleven days ago, while digging the foundation of a new building on Lafayette Street, construction workers made a startling discovery. They found St. Joseph. The large statue, which had not been seen for more than 60 years, was found where it was long believed buried, under the parking lot of the former St. Joseph Church. Over the years, its whereabouts, or even existence, had become the stuff of urban legend. Did it still exist after all these years? Where was it buried?

Salem Willows, My favorite place on earth! :)

my favorite food of all time! tendersteak sandwiches! yum!!!!! Salem Lowe is the original home of the Willows' famous chop suey sandwich. Relatively healthy for fast-food fare, the sandwich also comes with a bargain price of a buck-and-a-half. (The soy sauce is free, but the noodles are extra.)

E.W. Hobbs features popcorn and homemade ice cream. The corn is popped without oil in an old, large rotating kettledrum and topped with real butter. It may be the state's best-tasting popcorn. Hobbs also offers caramel corn and flavored popcorn bars. Although it's a matter of dispute, the shop claims to have served the nation's first ice cream cone (in 1906). Note the domed roof on the left. Before the advent of motor-driven flying horses, the building offered "carousel" rides on real ponies.
