Our mysterious journey takes us to ERIE, PA for the first night of travel, then to NIAGARA FALLS (US Side) for a day of fun and a night of lodging. We’ll board the famous MAID OF THE MIST and dine at TOP OF THE FALLS RESTAURANT. Then we continue en route to SALEM, MASS—where the Halloween season is in full gear!
A driving tour of SALEM—synonomous with witchcraft (inextricably linked to the Witchcraft Hysteria of the 1690’s) shows off the iconic statue of “ Samantha Stevens” (BEWITCHED TV Series), as well as the history of the witch trials, the splendid architecture, and glorious maritime history. Then step into the SALEM WITCH MUSEUM where “hysterical vistims testify against blameless victims.” We’ll also explore THE WITCH DUNGEON MUSEUM, WITCH HISTORY MUSEUM, and with tales provided by local historical storytellers, we’ll put the chill in “chilling tales!”—all in GOOD FUN!
As we leave SALEM, we’ll explore BOSTON, MASS for a day We’ll see BACK BAY, BEACON HILL, BOSTON COMMON and many other sites…including the OLD STATEHOUSE where our Declaration of Independence was read to the waiting citizens of BOSTON! We’ll depart BOSTON for the NORMAN ROCKWELL MUSEUM to see the artist’s works in his original OIL PAINTINGS.
After a night’s sleep in STOCKBRIDGE, we’ll start our journey home, with a night in ASHTABULA, OH on the shores of Lake Erie. The following day, we depart for home—with plenty of stories to tell and memories to share!
