Salem, MA [Part Two of Boston Trip]

Salem is the cutest town and I really just fall in love with it each time I go. I talked with a man who lives there and he said it is just an awful tourist town but regardless it's the most precious tourist town in the world! He said that people make $3,00-$5,000 every few days in the month of October alone. Pretty crazy stuff! Here are some pictures of the houses that reside on Chestnut Street. I believe the tour guide said it was the oldest street in America...or the prettiest...or something like that. If anyone is planning on traveling to Salem I have a few suggestions. One is to book far in advance. They only have two hotels and a few B&Bs. The second suggestion is to take the Trolley Tour. It saves you a lot of walking and gives you a brief history of Salem. It has stops so you can hop on and off at your leisure. The third piece of advice is to NOT go to the Witch History museum or the House of Seven Gables. The museum is nine dollars apiece and basically we couldn't stop laughing at how cheesy it was to watch the puppets talk about the Witch Trials. The House of Seven Gables is built on some gorgeous land so I would say pay $12.00 for that but the house itself was very unimpressive.

These brownstones, I can't even take them!

The house from Hocus Pocus.... I know, right? 

I have two, {two!} pictures in Boston in which I am physically in. Here is one!

We stayed here, it was pretty strange...they said we had the "king bed suite" but in reality it was two twins pushed together. Haha!

One more Boston post, coming soon!
