  • The fictional town of Salem, Illinois is the setting for the U.S. soap opera Days of Our Lives. It is located in the Midwest United States, though the state was not mentioned until the episode which aired on May 23, 2013. When John is looking at the itinerary it states, "Salem, MN". It was built and named in 1802, since Salem celebrated its 200-year birthday in 2002. It was vaguely set in New England, until it was moved to somewhere in the Midwest in the 1970s. For many years the real Salem, Illinois held a Salem Days fest, which several members of the cast attended. 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 DiMera Enterprises, 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. Characters often make reference to Chicago being nearby and the 312 Area Code, indicating Salem may be in Illinois. This, however, had contradicted characters mentioning going to Illinois and by the license plates of the cars in Salem. Is notable to mention that some characters are Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs fans. It was mentioned that Salem had legalized gay marriage in a January 2014 episode. In October 2015, Today confirmed that Salem's location is in the state of Illinois. (en)
  • Salem is een fictieve stad uit het middenwesten van de Verenigde Staten en vormt sinds 1965 de thuishaven voor de langlopende soapserie Days of our Lives. De precieze staat waarin Salem ligt wordt nooit vermeld; aanvankelijk lag Salem in New England, maar in de jaren zeventig werd dat het middenwesten. Er wordt meestal gezegd dat Salem een klein stadje is, maar het heeft meer de allure van een grote stad door de aanwezigheid van een universiteit, luchthaven en grote bedrijven als Titan Industries, Basic Black en Mythic Incorporated. Geregeld wordt er verwezen naar Chicago en het feit dat deze stad in de buurt ligt, waardoor men zou kunnen aannemen dat Salem in Illinois ligt. (nl)
