Why Travellers Choose This Tour

This attraction-packed group visit to "Witch City" includes free time to explore on your own.
Board an air-conditioned, luxury coach in downtown Boston and enjoy the 40-minute drive north to Marblehead and Salem, famous for the 1692 witch trials in which 20 residents were executed for allegedly practicing witchcraft. It’s just the beginning of the education on this Salem Witch City day trip.

The sightseeing tour begins in the coastal town of Marblehead, the birthplace of the American Navy and Marine Corps Aviation. Visit Abbot Hall, a town hall and historical museum where the original Spirit of ’76 painting is housed. Abbot Hall listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Onward to Salem, learn much more about the infamous Salem witch trials, a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts in the late 1600s. The trials resulted in the executions of 20 people, most of them women. It still stands as one of the nation’s most notorious cases of mass hysteria.

Explore the city on your own.  Suggested attractions include a visit the House of the Seven Gables, a National Historic Landmark District that served as the centerpiece in novelist and Salem-native Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic novel of the same name. It’s the oldest surviving 17th-century wooden mansion in New England. Also, visit the U.S. Custom House, where Hawthorne worked.

Finally, enjoy additional free time for lunch at a wide variety of restaurants and cafes in the Pickering Wharf neighborhood of Salem. Stop by any number of local Halloween shops and other witch-themed attractions and/or visit the Salem Witch Museum, if desired. There is a fee to enter the museum.
