Boston or Salem? If that has to be the question, the answer is … both. Ditch the traffic and enjoy both historic cities with the help of a speedy ferry. A one-way or round-trip ticket provides a quick journey along Massachusetts Bay, scenery included. Think fishing boats, lighthouses and beautiful homes here and there. It sure beats bumper-to-bumper traffic and angry car horns. The journey takes less than an hour.
On board this catamaran, which holds up to 149 passengers, enjoy the sights and sounds from the upper or lower deck, or just relax inside with a beverage or snack. Breakfast or lunch is always ready.
Upon arrival in Salem, it’s a short stroll to top attractions like the House of Seven Gables and the Peabody Essex Museum. At the other end in Boston, the New England Aquarium, the Old North Church, Quincy Market and more are within walking distance.
