Salem is a little over an hour north of Boston, Massachusetts, and has developed as a suburb of the city. Residential neighborhoods make up much of the town's 25.9 square mile landscape with the commercial area parallel to Route 28 being a notable exception. It is home, as the aforementioned motto claims, to a thriving industry that is evidenced by the factories and distribution centers lining the highway. Many residents of Salem are employed at these plants, which may be why job growth was recently predicted to reach 36.20 percent over the course of 10 years.

The town of Salem, New Hampshire, boasts a motto promising residents "industry, commerce, recreation" and more. This scenic locale does, indeed, have a lot to offer. Homebuyers looking to settle in the area can expect to find homes ranging from economical one-bedroom condos to newly constructed family-friendly houses with impressive yards and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms.
