Best known for its 1692 witch trials, Salem has a number of significant historical sites, a bustling downtown, and many witch-themed attractions.
Appreciate the collections at Peabody Essex Museum and The House of the Seven Gables. Shop till you drop at Franklin Pierce Homestead and North Shore Arts Association. Venture out of the city with trips to Massabesic Audubon Center (in Auburn), Crane Beach (in Ipswich) and Newburyport (Parker River National Wildlife Refuge & Plum Island). There's lots more to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get engrossed in the history at Salem Witch Museum, and go for a stroll along the water at Pickering Wharf.

For reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Salem trip itinerary builder app .

May in Salem sees daily highs of 67°F and lows of 48°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
