I’m always surprised when friends and family really don’t know where Salem, Massachusetts is located. They often think that it’s in the western part of the state or in Boston or New Hampshire (there is a Salem in New Hampshire about an hour away).. We are actually about fifteen miles north of Boston, right on the coast. It’s a very convenient location. We can be in the city (we call Boston the city here) in about forty minutes, less in good traffic. The mountains of New Hampshire are two hours north, and Cape Cod is the same distance to the south. And we have the ocean and all that it offers.
We love to sit and watch the boats
Or relax on the rocks at Waikiki Beach, one of our favorite things to do! Here’s my little guy a few years ago
and more recently, he’s gets bigger and more adventurous all the time!
We even have a polar bear plunge on New Years Day! (that’s snow on the beach in the background)
Salem is all about the ocean and the views here are beautiful, all year round!
There are several cities and towns called “Salem” in the United States, but this one is truly unique!
Enjoy your day! Thanks for stopping by! Michele
During the summer do you swim in the ocean or is the water too cold?
The kids (and other adults) swim, it’s way too cold for me!
