Best known for its 1692 witch trials, Salem has a number of significant historical sites, a bustling downtown, and many witch-themed attractions.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Sat): see the interesting displays at Peabody Essex Museum, get engrossed in the history at Salem Witch Museum, then steep yourself in history at The House of the Seven Gables, then view the masterpieces at Fished Impressions, and finally go for a stroll along the water at Pickering Wharf. Keep things going the next day: get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, make a trip to Stickworks Statue - What the Birds Know - by Patrick Dougherty, and then stroll around Salem Witch Trials Memorial.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Salem trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

In October, daily temperatures in Salem can reach 64°F, while at night they dip to 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
