lem, MA: A Witchin` Good Time!
Let the wild women of Salem put a little black magic into your life.
For those of you who take Harry Potter to heart, there`s no place like Salem. If your broomstick is in the shop and the Hogwarts` Express isn`t running, grab a picnic lunch from The Seasonal Table and zip up the shore the Muggle Way (by car) or by train (from Boston`s North Station). Explore the Witch Trials Memorial and the Old Burying Point, or tour the interiors of the Salem Witch Museum and the Witch House. Sample the brew at the Salem Tea Room, “where psychic readings are always on the menu.” If you`ve still got a bit of magic left in you, creep into the Witch Dungeon. Try to make it there before dark—you wouldn`t want to get locked in overnight, would you? Cackle, cackle.
Price starts as low as $196 + tax per person, package includes flight and car rental.
