The infamous Salem was home to the witch trials of 1692 when a group of girls and women in Salem Village, who had been dabbling with the occult, began acting in a strange manner. A local doctor claimed they were afflicted by the “evil hand” setting the stage for the accusation of approximately 190 people for witchcraft. Well aware of its infamy, Salem has a number of attractions centered on this uneasy time, including haunted tours and re-enactments. Then drive on passing Gloucester, America’s oldest fishing port, toward Kennebunkport which has many historic and fun-filled attractions.

Go horseback riding on the beach at sunset, look for sunken ships and lost schooners on a scuba excursion or ride the surf on a boogie board. Whether you want to cast your line for a feisty bluefish or soar above the island in a biplane, you will find an activity that suits you.
