Salem Overnight (2-Day)
Salem, Massachusetts: a city of notorious history and fantastical attractions! Salem was the backdrop for the 1692 witchcraft trials, when innocent men, women and children suffered the consequences of witchcraft accusations, with over 250 people imprisoned and 20 of them eventually executed. The landscape of many of author Nathanial Hawthorne’s stories and novels, Salem still remains a world renowned bewitching seaport. Salem is linked to the Witchcraft Hysteria of the 1690’s, but Salem also has a glorious maritime history and splendid architecture.
