Best known for its 1692 witch trials, Salem has a number of significant historical sites, a bustling downtown, and many witch-themed attractions.
Get out of town with these interesting Salem side-trips: Ogunquit (Marginal Way Walkway, Perkins Cove, & more), Strawbery Banke Museum (in Portsmouth) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Gloucester). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Peabody Essex Museum, take an in-depth tour of The House of the Seven Gables, stroll through Pickering Wharf, and contemplate the long history of Salem Maritime National Historic Site.

To find traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Salem holiday builder site .

Expect a daytime high around 56°F in April, and nighttime lows around 38°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
