What you will visit:

Salem/Salem Witch Museum
Grand, old homes line Salem's magnificent Chestnut Street. Many of them built by sea captains and merchants in the early 1800's during Salem's "Great Age of Sail." Step back into 1692 at the Salem Witch Museum and relive the witchcraft hysteria that once overwhelmed superstitious Salem Village. This experience offers a theater with stage settings and figures, a narrator, and the voices of actors and actresses who accurately and dramatically present the truth of the hangings in the dark period of the Witchcraft Trials. After the presentation, tour through the display area featuring lifelike figures that answer your questions about witches, past and present.

Photo Opportunities:

Copley Square
Copley Square showcases stunning examples of medieval, classical, and modern design. The most prominent building is the Romanesque Trinity Church. Completed in 1877. Located on the south side is the magnificent Boston Public Library. Overlooking the square is the ultra-modern John Hancock Tower.

Old North Church
Relive Paul Revere's midnight ride and learn the history of this epic event of the American Revolution. It is on this very spot that Paul Revere ordered two lanterns hung in the steeple to signal how the British redcoats were on the move: "One if by Land, two if by Sea." Look up and you can see the lanterns proudly displayed in the church's tower.
