Rainy day in Salem

It was cold, rainy, and miserable the day we went to Salem for the first time. After a lovely brunch at the Hawthorne Hotel, we wanted to see some museums and sights around...alas, we didn't see much. We did go to the wax/salem witch museum where we took a look at scenes from the history of the town. It was disappointing, but we were relieved to be indoors.

You can pretend to be a pirate after seeing the waxen scenes of Salem!

I really want to return to visit the art museum...it looks amazing!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Lots of beautiful houses, many museums, yummy brunch
  • Cons:Brunch is not cheap! Lots of lines for museums...if it's raining, no where to hide!
  • In a nutshell:I'm going back!

    It's been 4 years! Have you returned to Salem yet? I'm thinking of another trip now that fall is almost here.
