War of 1812 Day at Salem Maritime National Historic Site! Salem Maritime will be celebrating the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 with living history programming throughout the day. Meet some of Salem's 19th century citizens, and hear their views on this controversial war. Family activities and Junior Ranger programs will be offered all day.
Take a seat in your classroom-on-the-sea. Absorb the invigorating sea and the rich history of Salem Sounds and its storied ocean front estates with Mahi Mahi Cruises & Charters. This tour gets you up close to view the coastline from the water, and gives you a brand new perspective on the splendor of the North Shore's coast.
This is a Trails and Sails special program! Enjoy one stunning view after the next as we explore the Crane Wildlife Refuge, an island studded patchwork of salt marsh and tidal creeks located in Essex Bay. During this guided tour, participants will traverse a series of island treasures, walking a spectacular network of carriageways and footpaths, linking cobbled beaches and grassy fields with forested hillsides and historic buildings.
