I am bringing back Neighborhood Inspections! We did these years ago and they are a total blast. Ever wanted to visit a cool city but just haven't had the time? Then come out and "inspect" Salem - my hometown - and meet fun people in the process. I own my own walking tour business, so I'll be giving a complimentary walking tour at a casual pace.
We will meet at 11:00 at the Visitor's Center. It is a short walk from the train (the commuter rail runs pretty often from North Station on Saturdays). After meeting, we will walk down the Essex Walking Mall, stopping at the shops and sights along the way, until we reach Washington St.
Cross Washington St, check out Samantha statue from Bewitched
12:30 Lunch at Gulu Gulu
2:00 Continue down Essex St, check out Hex
Stop at the Witch House, tour through McIntyre district, back down Chestnut St. Follow down to Washington St, stop at Joshua Ward House - the "most haunted house in Salem"
3:00 - Cross Washington St, head down Front St for more shopping. Dessert/Ice cream at Maria's Sweet Somethings
Continue to the oldest cemetery in Salem, the 1637 Burial Ground
To round out the day, we will stroll over to a local restaurant to relax with a drink or two - TBA
Looking forward to showing off my hometown, and favorite city, to fun new friends!
