What I Wore & Did in Salem + FF Link-Up!

Jacket, Tee, Jeans, Bag, Mules
We were able to find parking in the Historic District which was a perfect spot to walk around and explore. There were so many stores and restaurants in this area plus it was an easy walking distance to The Witch House which was on my list to see first. 
Later in the day, we walked down to the waterfront area which probably was our favorite part of the day. There is a long path that goes out over the ocean towards the Derby Wharf Light Station and it was such a gorgeous view! 
The Ropes Mansion and the garden behind it was GORGEOUS. It's right next to the Witch House so make sure you swing by there especially if you're visiting in the spring/summer time.
Happy Wednesday friends! Sorry for missing my usual post on Monday. We're in the midst of the move so things are a little crazy right now. I'm hoping the week after next things will start to go back to normal!

One of the last things we wanted to do while still in New England was visit Salem. We had intended to go last summer but we were just enjoying being in Boston every weekend so we never ended up going! I'm SO glad we waited though because we had the perfect spring weather day when we visited. If you can go in spring, I would highly recommend because it wasn't quite as packed with tourists (I've heard that closer to Halloween it's insanity) and the flowers were all in bloom and so pretty.

We started the day walking around the Historic District which was filled with shops and restaurants galore. We grabbed a pastry from Caramel which is the cutest little French patisserie. If you stop in, I highly recommend the chocolate croissant. We made our way over to see the Witch House which wasn't far at all and though we didn't pay to go inside, it was still neat to see. The historic homes in this part of the city were GORGEOUS.

We walked back towards the Historic District and made our way to the Salem Witch Museum. We did end up paying to go inside for the "Presentation" but I have to say that I don't think it was really worth it. While it was neat to hear more about the Salem Witch Trials, I think next time I would opt for a guided tour around the area especially if the weather is nice. The museum was a little corny in my opinion!

After the museum, we made our way towards the Howling Wolf which was a Mexican restaurant recommended by a friend. It was SUPER yummy so if you're in the mood for margaritas and chips/salsa (who isn't?!), definitely make this your lunch or dinner spot while visiting. This was the perfect pit stop because we wanted to make our way towards the waterfront area and this was right in the middle.

The waterfront was absolutely gorgeous--we walked out to the Derby Wharf Light Station and the view was pretty breathtaking. After that, we still had some time left so we walked towards the House of Seven Gables which was on my list to see but we didn't realize you also had to pay to get inside. The day was so nice that I really didn't want to pay to be inside at that point so we just took a peak of the house then headed back to our car.

Overall, it was SUCH a fun day and the weather was absolutely perfect. I'm so glad we were able to see Salem before our move!
