I am planning a long weekend (Thurs-Sun or Fri-Mon) for my husband and I. I'm embarrassed to say that, although we've travelled around the world, we haven't been to any of the New England states. Sooo...after doing some internet research, I am interested in staying in Salem at a highly recommended B&B there. I've seen that we can get transportation there from Boston Logan for well less than the cost of car rental (not to mention gas!!!) but am wondering if we should opt for the car so we have the freedom of driving. I'm of the mind that, since we only have 2 full days to explore the environs, then we should just do the mass transit because we really don't have time to do much out of the city...or do we? Can some of you locals or repeat visitors let me know? FYI, we are definately interested in immersing ourselves in the history of the area and if time permits, would be interested in journeying to another nearby (and accessible by public transport) location offering other historical tidbits. Thanks!
