“A nice quiet change from downtown and the witches”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

While witches and such were a big part of the reason we went down to Salem, it was nice to get away from it for awhile. We just wish it wasn't so damn cold.

The walk in the area, is pleasant with a ton of shops of all kinds. the folks are pleasant and helpful should you need directions and want to know the best place to eat, stay or visit.

This area will get more of our time during our next visiti.

“Bewitched!!!”
Reviewed 29 October 2013

I loved the thought of being able to be in the ship. Yes, we did board the ship and had a fun time taking photos of the inside. There were a lot of tourist in customes on halloween week and parking was a pain. We explored the shops in the wharf area and bought some trinkets. Will definitely be back but maybe not on October.

“A ' Witch ' free zone”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

Salem is a picturesque sea port with an attractive harbour front complete with an historic schooner. Halloween is perhaps the wrong time to visit Salem as the witch industry is in overdrive and can be a bit over powering, Salem has so much more to offer. The harbour side was a relatively witch free zone with some good views, a nice place to chill out and watch the world go by on a sunny day. There are also some interesting shops and good cafe's. There are several plaques explaining the history of the area.
