With two days in Salem, you can go beyond the conventional history tour and delve deeper into the town’s colonial past. Take the time to see the McIntire Historic District, Old Burying Point Cemetery, and the waterfront, and even book a chartered sail to get out on the open sea. Here’s how to get the most out of your 2-day adventure in Salem.

Day 1: Morning

Learn about Salem's past on a half-day history walking tour, and explore the must-see McIntire Historic District. Recharge with a coffee in downtown Salem, then go for a stroll to the Howard Street Cemetery and Salem Common, a 17th-century village green.

Day 1: Afternoon

After lunch, hop aboard a historic vessel at Pickering Wharf for a sailing excursion on Salem Sound. Back on land, stroll Wharf Street to find several seafood eateries, or stop at the House of the Seven Gables, a National Historic Landmark.

Day 1: Night

For a spooky evening, take a haunted night tour around Salem. Most tours discuss the city's colonial history and witch-trial hysteria. Stroll the cobblestoned streets and marvel at homes on Chestnut Street. History buffs can book a tour combo for top value.

Day 2: Morning

Uncover Salem's occult history by starting your day with a witch tour or haunted history tour. Be sure to visit Salem's Old Burying Point Cemetery, where the accused witches from 1692 are buried. Alternatively, opt for a quirky start to the day with an interactive-game adventure.

Day 2: Afternoon

Continue a witch-themed day at Salem's favorite cultural institutions. First, stop by the Salem Wax Museum to see wax reproductions of the town's famous historical figures. Next, visit Witch Village, learn about the history of witchcraft from your guide, and pick up a kitschy souvenir at the gift shop.

Day 2: Night

End your two days in Salem with a scenic evening stroll along the Derby Waterfront District, and find a historic lighthouse at the end of the wharf. This is the perfect place for a photo op and postdinner stroll in the ocean air.
