“Cute and Fun Place for a Little Shopping and Walking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Lots of little stores to poke around in. Several restaurants. THe best feature is the location and the setting. Right on the harbor and on the walking trail.

“Nice shopping and dining area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We kept missing the open hours of the shops located on Pickering WHarf. Wanted to buy trolley tickets one morning, but found the shop did not open until after the first trolley of the day. Wanted to visit the shops in the evening, but they all closed at 5:00 pm. Restaurants seemed busy every evening.

“Beautiful views!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

The very heart of Salem. Beautiful views of the harbor and Friendship of Salem ship very cool to see. It adds to the mysteriousness of Salem. You can walk all the way down to a lighthouse. Interesting shops and good places to eat.
