Travel north of Boston to the historic seaside city of Salem, best known for its 17th century witchcraft hysteria. A scenic drive through Salem takes you along Chestnut Street, often called the most beautiful street in America for its unrivaled examples of Federal architecture. A visit will be made to the Salem Witch Museum trials. Listen to an audio presentation describing the witchcraft trails as well as learn the facts of the witchcraft origins and believes.
Take in Salem s picturesque Derby Wharf, dating back to the fabled China Trade period after the Revolution when Salem's Yankee Clipper ships sailed around the globe to Canton and the South Seas, and Salem was the wealthiest city in the United States. Afterwards, you'll have time to independently explore the historic buildings along the waterfront, snap a photo of Friendship, a replica clipper ship, or simply relax and browse the unique shops of Salem.
