Limit search to Salem.
Phillips House
#1 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
... many questions and Joan was so willing to respond....great artifacts....provides outstanding insights as to how the affluent lived in those days...if you like history and nistalgia....you should enjoy this site.
You will hear about the well know and long term family servants, view furnishings, travel souvenirs, and artwork owned by the family, and learn about the Hawaii connection which is obvious throughout the house.
The House of the Seven Gables
#2 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
The guide was very knowledgeable and had lots of information about the history of the house and Nathaniel Hawthorne.The gardens are lovely with a good view of Salem harbour.
Eye-opening and fascinating on many levels, and beautiful architecture, grounds, gardens, views...the works.

Old Burying Point Cemetery
#3 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
... a guided tour, where you might learn about the 22 yr old seaman who was killed when his ship was struck by lightning, and the tree that has grown up at his grave site that gets struck by lightning every 22 years!
Also, it's right next to the witches' memorial, so you can see two historical sites at once...for free!

Salem Maritime National Historic Site
#4 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
While Salem has lots of history on the witch trials, this site really focuses on the rest of the maritime history of Salem to balance your visit.
The staff at the National Historic Site do a great job of giving visitors the history of Salem's maritime past and describing what Derby Wharf was like back in the day.
Pickering Wharf
#5 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
There are some great little shops and a nice view of the water as well as great maritime history attractions.
Great walking areas, views of the water and boats and a nice safe, relaxed atmosphere.

After the Customs House take a walk down the pier to the Lighthouse and admire the beautiful view of the natural harbour - well worth it.

Bewitched Statue of Elizabeth Montgomery
#7 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
It's a fun and kitschy site to see! It's in a small park in the city with quite a few stores around to visit.
I enjoyed stopping by the statue while visiting other sites in Salem for Halloween
Ropes Mansion
#8 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
Free admission and well-worth it for the many historical items on view.
You can spend ten minutes here or over an hour depending on what your mood is: it’s also a must stop of your looking at the Hocus Pocus filming sites.
Stickworks Statue - What the Birds Know - by Patrick Dougherty
#9 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
Loved this easily accessible art installation - it's fascinating to wander through the "statues" and experience the sights and smells of living in a tree.
And experience what I guess would be how a bird views the world from its home.
Proctor's Ledge Memorial
#10 of 25 Sights & Landmarks in Salem
This is a quick stop, it will only take a few minutes of your time, but you have to go if you're in Salem to see witch trial related sites.
It looked fascinating, as the recently deciphered actual site of the hangings.
