Hocus Pocus filming locations self guided tour in Salem, Mass.

As we were driving into Salem – I did a scream that best resembles a pterodactyl screech upon seeing the first filming location on my list: the Ropes Mansion…ask Allison’s house. I jumped out of the car and had mom snap a few pics – we walked around the backyard gardens (beautiful) and also through the house (which isn’t where the filmed the inside of Allison’s house scenes).

Salem is busy this time of year! We’re just a week away from Halloween – we wandered down main street and came upon the Town Hall. It’s not in as good of shape as it was in the movie – but it’s still cool.

Then the graveyard – I’m not entirely sure what they filmed here – but I joked I was visiting Billy Butcherson (ps I’m the only person in my group who cares about this stuff).

We went to the wrong house first – as there is an Ocean Street in Beverly, Mass. (but it’s a church!) and an Ocean Avenue in Salem. Max and Danni’s house is in Salem. It was getting closer to nighttime as we finally made our way there, but I got to see it! I wanted so badly as a kid to grow up in their house and have Max’s room. SURRREEEEALLLL.
