Erin and I decided last month that we should figure out a time to go to Salem. I haven’t been in years, and she hasn’t gone EVER! So we got there a bit early, traffic was terrible trying to get to the parking garage. It was also raining while we were trying to find our sci-fi themed pizza place we scoped out a few weeks back. The pizza was decent. Thankfully it stopped raining by the time we got out of lunch. Also, it didn’t rain for the rest of the day, hooray!
After the pizza, we made our way to the Peabody-Essex museum to check out the “It’s Alive!” exhibit, it was awesome! I may have had a tad too much fun using Snapchat filters on the scary faces.
After the museum, we visited the House of Seven Gables. It was very interesting! We visited the house and Nathaniel Hawthorne’s childhood home. It was also very crowded, but we managed to get ourselves onto a tour of the home. Basically everyone visits Salem in October, so crowds were to be expected. I think we lucked out going on a Sunday though.
After the museum, we did some shopping. We also stopped by the Salem Witch Trials museum to nab a time slot for later on that day. It’s good that we did, as the museum sold out later that day. We had dinner at Bonchon, and got ourselves some fried dough for dessert. I also may have purchased two tiny witch hats. The one in the picture is larger, the other is only 3″ tall. So cute!
The Witch Trials museum is the same from what I remembered. I haven’t been there since our 7th grade trip to Salem, haha. All in all, a very fun day! I can’t wait to go back next year.
