While we were in Boston we decided to take a day trip to Salem, its really easy to get to, just take the train. Round trip tickets were $10.50 per person. I knew nothing about Salem other then that this was where the witch trials took place. I was surprised to find it near a harbor and even more surprised to learn that Salem had a major shipping trade with the far East.
At the East Inda Marine Hall.
Its really easy to find everything, just follow the red painted line along the sidewalks and it will help keep you from getting lost. Just make sure you head back to Boston before the fog rolls in.
We did arrive in Salem a little late, which means that we were unable to see all of the museums, but the trip was worth it. Salem is a part of history and its a place that you should visit.
