Salem is an exciting place to live or visit for a night out, a unique meal, a festival, a quiet afternoon, a cultural escape, a romantic getaway, a family vacation or a destination wedding. It also happens to be one of the most LGBT-friendly places in the country, having received a perfect score in the HRC Equality Index.

We were recently featured in Boston Spirit magazine, and you can check it out here!
