I am gonna make this quick for everyone's convenience. I went to Salem today and we visited the Salem Witch Museum, got a psychic reading, got apple cider, went to the Witch Dungeon museum, got food (bad Yelp review) and then walked around and went back.
Would I go again? Good question. I am going to say yes but only 1) at night, and 2) for a Pub Crawl or something. There's seriously not a whole lot to do during the day but it's definitely a bucket list item. If you've ever been to an amusement park around Halloween time, you'll know what Salem is like then. Basically just a ton of people in costume walking around and a lot of decorations. Honestly, it was super cute but I pretty much saw most everything in the one day that I was there walking around.
The psychic reading, however, was the highlight of the experience. I initially swore off psychic readings forever, because I believe too much in fate and didn't want to know if something bad was going to happen. However, I figured, if there's ever a time to get a psychic reading, it is today, here in Salem (basically the capital of Halloween?). I won't go into detail but she was basically spot-on with knowing things about me, to the point where it was frightening. I therefore trusted the things she said. A few unsettling predictions about my life but overall it was just a mind-blowing experience.
Here was my outfit. High 50s and mostly sunny, minimal breeze. I planned my whole outfit around the pants and jacket. The others just fell into place.
Neck Scarf: ASOS
Jacket: Banana Republic (old)
Pants: Larry Levine
Booties: Marc Fisher
