Boston: Part 4 (Salem)


I think one of the only things I wanted to do (besides eat everywhere) was go to Salem, Massachusetts. Salem is only a beautiful 30 minute drive north of Boston. Before we got Salem though we stopped at Crane Beach. It was clean and pretty but it was also rather cold out. Drew finally got use to the idea of sand and was eventually able to walk on it.
 and even taste it....

 After Crane Beach we drove up to Salem. It was awesome. Of course now it is a full functioning city, so I was thinking it would be more obsessed with the Salem Witch Trials then  it was but it was still awesome to see during October. There were a lot of Halloween decorations and this house was really decked out. I'm obviously really excited.
 Of course we found another cemetery, and Drew loved it again. Some of headstones said stuff like "Pressed to Death September 1692"AWESOME. The streets were foggy with with the mist coming in off the ocean which made it a perfect day to see the eerie sights in Salem.

Massachusetts was beautiful. It's nice that its pretty close for fun excursions. There's a lot of great cities to see on the East coast and I'm glad we'll have more fall breaks to get out and explore.
