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.
