Salem (Days of our Lives)

Salem (Days of our Lives)

The town of Salem is the setting for the U.S. soap opera "Days of our Lives". It is located in the Midwestern United States, though the state is never mentioned. It was built and named in 1802, since Salem celebrated it's 200-year birthday in 2002. Originally set in New England, the vague setting was moved to somewhere in the Midwest in the 1970s. Every year the real Salem, Illinois even holds a Salem Days fest, in which several members of the cast attend.

While it is constantly referenced as a town, it features more characteristics of a city; for example it is home of the large, multinational corporations Titan Industries and Basic Black, Mythic Incorporated, as well as a full University and an international airport. Despite its otherwise innocuous presence, over the years it has been a hotbed of foreign intrigue, organized crime, and other strange happenings.

Interestingly enough, despite its location in the midwest, Salem has a thriving industrial harbor, leading some fans to believe it is located on the Great Lakes.

Characters often make reference to Chicago being nearby and the 312 Area Code, indicating Salem may be in Illinois. Also notable to mention is that some characters are Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs fans.
