Pickering Wharf, Salem
(3.8/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
The waterfront neighborhood of Pickering Wharf represents a variety of charming stores, cafes, and restaurants. You can search for souvenirs at its antique stores, independent boutiques, galleries, and gift shops before stopping for a drink or bite to eat overlooking the water. Those who don't like to shop can simply enjoy observing the activity of the harbor and its collection of boats. Don't miss an impressive replica of the Friendship Schooner, a 1800s trading ship that is docked here.
