Salem, N.H. – not to be confused with its nearby namesake in Massachusetts, home to the infamous witch trials – holds the distinction of oldest town in New Hampshire. The once-rural town today is home to more than 25,000 people and has become a shopping and tourist attraction for people from miles around.

Sharing Canobie Lake with nearby Windham, Salem plays host to Canobie Lake Park, founded in 1902 by the Massachusetts Northeast Street Railway Company as a way to attract visitors to ride its trolleys. The amusement park is as popular now as it was then, though it sports much more modern rides and attractions for all ages. Salem also offers first-rate shopping at the Mall at Rockingham Park. Visitors and residents alike also enjoy the many pleasures of Canobie Lake itself, including boating, waterskiing, fishing and hiking. Nearby American Stonehenge treats visitors to strangely shaped rock formations of dubious origin throughout a spacious wooded park.

With its proximity to greater Boston, Salem offers a high employment rate and standard of living, all while continuing to enjoy the small-town feel of the resort community that it is. Popular dining options include The Copper Door Restaurant and Tuscan Restaurant & Market Place. Black Water Grill (American fare), Trattoria Amalfi (Italian) and Mill Pond Tavern (American).

Visitors and residents alike can look forward to the Tuscan Village, which will be located on the old Rockingham Park Race Track property.  It will be home to retail shops, restaurants, townhouses, apartments and even a movie theater.
