Salem

— 7 nights

Witch City

Best known for its 1692 witch trials, Salem has a number of significant historical sites, a bustling downtown, and many witch-themed attractions.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Witch Dungeon Museum as well as Hocus Pocus Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Salem: Gloucester (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Fishermen's Memorial Monument), Bearskin Neck (in Rockport) and Concord (Walden Pond State Reservation, The Old Manse, &more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of The House of the Seven Gables, contemplate the long history of Cogswell's Grant, explore the different monuments and memorials at Old Burying Point Cemetery, and see the interesting displays at Salem Witch Museum.
