Salem, Mass.

Today's destination was Salem, Mass. We took the Salem Trolley tour of the town and learned some of its history. One of the biggest tourist attractions there is witches. There were a lot of witch-related stores, museums and tarot readers but we stayed away from them. Then we walked to the dock area and toured one of the tall ships on display. A few block further down was the famous House of The Seven Gables - the inspiration and setting for Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel built in 1668. Of course, we had to take the tour which was very interesting and even had us walking up and down some very tight, secret staircases.
