Best known for its 1692 witch trials, Salem has a number of significant historical sites, a bustling downtown, and many witch-themed attractions.
Change things up with these side-trips from Salem: Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Gloucester), Ogunquit (Marginal Way Walkway, Perkins Cove, & more) and Ipswich Ale Brewery (in Ipswich). There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at The House of the Seven Gables, get a new perspective on nature at Harvard Museum of Natural History, examine the collection at Peabody Essex Museum, and take an in-depth tour of Salem Witch Museum.

For ratings, more things to do, traveler tips, and tourist information, read Salem journey planner .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 64°F, and evening lows to 45°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
