Description

Board the Salem Ferry in Boston and enjoy the scenery as you pass the Boston Harbor Islands and head up the coast of the North Shore before docking in Salem. Enjoy a visit to the Salem Witch Museum and be transported back to 1692 to experience the history of the Salem Witch Trials. Take away important lessons from how the events played out and the key figures that drove the witchcraft panic, and examine how these themes are applicable to modern culture. Once you leave the museum, enjoy some free time to grab lunch on your own in Salem Village, with recommendations from your guide. After lunch, retrace the footsteps of Salem’s famous history with a guided walk through town. Honor the innocent victims at the Salem Witch Trial Memorial, hear of the lasting impact the Witch Trials left on the town, and learn how the present-day community continues to respect its legacy. Moving onto the Burying Point, your small group will visit the final resting place of notable Salem residents and some important figures from the Witch Trials. Now that you’ve learned about history, time to turn your attention to modern times and discover some seemingly out-of-place marks left behind by popular culture. Enjoy curious storefronts, historic homes, and more as you roam Salem’s streets. Take some photos at the Bewitched Statue, and then walk up a historic street to the setting of Hocus Pocus: Ropes Mansion. Wrap up your day with a visit to the First Church in Salem and the Witch House, both of which were significant to the Salem Witch Trials. Stay as long as you like and continue your own exploration of Salem before making your way back to Boston with one more ferry ride.
