As the leaves on the trees gradually turn to hues of yellow, orange and red the arrival of autumn brings with it New England traditions such as apple picking, fall fairs and the fall harvest.Autumn also is the perfect time to delve into the fun, fantasy and fright associated with Halloween, with perhaps no place better for it than Salem — famous for the 17th century Salem Witch Trials — making it a hub of for all things fall.While Salem isn't the only Massachusetts destination great for celebrating this time of year, its unique history, attractions and fall-time activities greatly complement the season— in addition to the many year-round attractions worth a visit.
