Best known for its 1692 witch trials, Salem has a number of significant historical sites, a bustling downtown, and many witch-themed attractions.
Explore Salem's surroundings by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Gloucester), Salisbury Rail Trail (in Salisbury) and Ogunquit (Ogunquit Beach, Perkins Cove, & more). There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of The House of the Seven Gables, go for a stroll along the water at Pickering Wharf, see the interesting displays at Peabody Essex Museum, and enjoy the sea views from Nubble Lighthouse.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Salem day trip planner.

In October, daily temperatures in Salem can reach 64°F, while at night they dip to 45°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
