GUEST BLOG - TIPS FOR TRAVEL TO SALEM, MA
GUEST BLOG BY MEYERPHOTOVIDEO.COM
Salem, Massachusetts, located less than an hour north of Boston, is infamous for its witch trials. As such, visitors visit the town in droves in the fall, when the foliage is at its peak.Considering a vacation to Salem? You are in for a treat! Outside of Halloween, visiting Salem is much more budget-friendly, however, the town lacks the festivities that make it worth visiting.
Take the Salem Trolley when you arrive in Salem to experience an hour-long tour covering Salem’s past and present. After your tour, you can use the trolley throughout the day to hop on and off around town. For specific information, visit SalemTrolley.com. Personally, I took the trolley for sightseeing but did a lot of travel around town with our car. Salem is a popular destination in the fall, and it was a bit too cold to walk on foot the whole day. Once in Salem, you’ll be pleased to find that most everything you’d want to do is within walking distance, but depending on season, the temperature may affect your walking plans.
Besides the trolley tour, I encourage any tourist to take a walking tour. There are historical walking tours available for nearly every interest with stops at sites relevant to the Salem Witch Trials, spice trade, and Salem’s maritime history.
If you are getting married in Salem, I'd recommend scouting locations with low traffic before your big day. If you are interested in other wedding day tips, visit meyerphotovideo.com/timeline
