Salem, MA is “still making history” because so much happens here every single day—from the arts, to the food, to the festivals and people. When we designed this website for our visitors, we had one thing in mind: how will YOU be a part of it all?

Then we got thinking:

Nothing shows the true experience and culture of a destination better than actual experiences, and nothing brings you into the picture more than a picture you actually took. That’s why we decided to use real photos and videos that our visitors took and shared on Instagram.

If you’d like your Instagram post featured on, be sure to tag @destsalem!

A big THANK YOU to all who agreed to let us use their posts.
