Parking & Access

Meeting Place

Private tours and public tours meet near the Salem Common War Memorial (image, right) unless otherwise arranged. This is near the main entrance of the Common, at the corner of South Washington Square and Hawthorne Blvd. If you want to drop off the rest of your party before you park, we recommend doing so near this intersection.

ReadSalem‘s starting point for 2022 is the Witch Trials Memorial in Salem, just off of Charter Street, near Liberty Street.


Nearby the entrance to the Common there is a Parking Garage (shaded with green lines on map) or the Church Street parking lot (shaded with purple lines on map) a short distance from the Common. See parking map HERE.

You can also access an interactive parking map HERE.


Your guide is fully vaccinated and boostered against COVID-19 and will follow all federal, state, and local guidelines regarding the virus.

Salem does not currently require masks indoors, but individual businesses might. I recommend bringing a mask to Salem. COVID updates from the city of Salem can be found on Destination Salem.

Free, walk-in rapid COVID tests are available in downtown Salem. Please visit this site for more information.
