Last Travel Fling Before Wedding Bells Ring: Salem, Massachusets

In honor of Halloween, one of my all-time favorite holidays, lets head over to Salem, Massachusetts, one of the earliest American colonies for a little bachelorette fun. Here’s the scoop:

  • Who: Gals who want to explore New England’s charming towns, spooky sights and waterfront attractions while knowing the pulse of Boston is nearby.
  • What: Salem is a cute, sleepy tourist destination full of historical characters and things to do. Take in a witch trial, visit a slew of art museums, check out the shops and restaurants at Pickering Wharf, learn about the area’s literary legacy, photograph architectural landmarks or take a night tour lead by lantern light.
  • When: The city’s month-long Haunted Happenings in October includes parades, parties, and tours. If you must go on Halloween, beware of the crowds and tourist-trap scene and be sure to bring your costumes.
  • Where: Less than an hour from Boston. Easily accessible via MBTA commuter train, car or a 45-minute catamaran during summer months.
  • Don’t Miss: Check out the nearby towns including Essex (birthplace of the fried clam!), Marblehead and Manchester-by-the-Sea.
