I thought Salem was in the Midwest?

I'm watching the 8/23 episode

When they zoomed in on the close up of Rafe's subpoena it was titled "The People of the State of California"
and that the address for attending court was:

89795 Riverside Drive
Salem, USA 06649.

For the record, 06649 isn't a valid zip code.  However, I would think it would be located on the east coast and not the Midwest.

I think it's supposed to be Salem, Massachusetts, so I think when it said "California" that was an error made by the show.

Oh, wait, I just found this on Wikipedia:
"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 until the episode which aired on 5/23/13."

I didn't know that. Cool! :0)
my mom and i started watching the show when marlena was possessed, so we thought it was our nearby city of salem, ma.. but marlena's possession was the only thing that really made us think that. later i found out it was the midwest and it seemed to match better than the northeast.
I've been watching for about 22 years now, I never really picked up on where exactly Salem was. For a while I figured they didn't want to say because they wanted it to be a fictional place.

Agreed. I've always thought it was in Illinois, too--somewhat of a suburb of Chicago, too. Maybe it could be a southeastern suburb, placing it in Indiana, but it would match up with being close to Chicago still.
