Salem is an awesome place to live. I used to live there and really enjoyed it. I live in Colorado now but I’m going back to Salem in a few weeks to see some friends and enjoy the town. There’s no place better to be during Halloween time than Salem! I wish you the best of luck please keep us posted with your journey.

Thanks Traveler. I really love Salem. How do you like CO compared to MA? Probably better winters in CO.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a neighborhood similar to Salem? Not too commercial, but near transit, vegan restaurants nearby? Thanks.
Somerville. People who cant afford Somerville often consider Salem and say it has a similar vibe. Easy T ride from the city to Davis Square.

Back Bay is too expensive. It’s not a “gentrified area” it’s a major downtown business district with an ultra-rich residential neighborhood on one side. Nothing like Salem.

Waltham is a close analogy to Salem - there’s a denser urbanized area around Moody and Main streets with some great food and nightlife, but it’s still somewhat affordable. It’s in the sweet spot of the gentrification curve.

Somerville and Cambridge are must visits, if you haven’t been.

Quincy Center is under construction but it’s got a happening downtown.

Further afield is Worcester, which is an up and coming city pretty distinct from Boston

Thanks Bos I’m going to try to see Waltham while I’m there as well as Somerville. I never thought of Waltham as being similar to Salem but I’ve never been there. I’m just going to use back bay as a base since it will be a short few days during a holiday weekend.

Youíre very welcome. Colorado is great. Denver is a fun city with lots to do and itís nice being close to so many parks, mountains etc. I will say that I miss the greenery of New England and also the proximity to so many other cool places. I took that for granted when I lived there. You have Boston, the north shore towns, Cape Cod, Portsmouth NH, Portland and Ogunquit Maine, Providence RI etc all within an hour or two drive. Here in Colorado you are pretty land locked.

Iím very excited to be in Salem in a few weeks to see friends and enjoy the town. Itís such a charming cool town and has a vibe like no other place I have been to.

This will be my first full winter in Colorado, but from what I have heard from the locals they are not too bad at all. We shall see! Enjoy your time in Boston in November
