7 'Hocus Pocus' Film Locations You Need To Visit To Get Your Spook On

"It's just a bunch of hocus pocus."


The 1993 cult-classic, "Hocus Pocus," tells the story of the Sanderson sisters— three witches who were hung during the Salem witch trials after casting a spell on Thackery Binx, cursing him to roam the streets of Salem as an immortal black cat. After 300 years, the witches were accidentally resurrected on Halloween night in their home by Max, a teenager who until now, was Halloween's very own Scrooge by lighting the infamous black candle.

Not many people know, but this iconic adventure was legitimately filmed in Salem, Massachusetts. Most of the locations in the movie are ironically enough only within two miles of each other. You can walk to almost all of them in less than 30 minutes which is amazing.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter.

The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
