    I love my hometown but yes it's a little annoying now and I think it's gotten worse from when I was a child (I'll be 30 soon), I do wish they'd place a limit on the tourist traps. Anyhow, Salem makes over $20 million a year off these dumb tourists to both the bemusement and annoyance to locals. I remember being in HS and everyone cussing out the tourists and bemoaning their presence. But the city makes sooo much money for a city of approx 40,000 people…I remember it was debated wether we should play up this part of our history or not (this seems to come up every now and then but the money wins out). Salem and nearby Danvers were ONE town (Salem) before splitting up - the actual trials/hangings took place in Danvers. Also, Salem is America's 'maritime city' we were the first (and for a LONG time) the only city to trade with China. Thus, were a center of commerce and wealth like Boston or the DC area. But since we play up the witch thing we get A LOT of wannabe but don't understand Wicca types (ie itch/warlock) and even wish Harry Potter was real types - that come through on Halloween every year and over the year. It's a little annoying but what are you going to do? I wish that as residents we'd put our foot down about this. It's getting to be too much
