We went down here just to see what it was all about. Quite a few cute little shops with your basic souveniers. Its nice and quiet and you can get a good view of the harbour and the Friendship (tall ship) without having to go into the Maritime Historical Area.

On our most recent visit to Salem we noticed our favorite shopping spot had lost some of our favorite stores. One would expect that given the current economy, but we did find out many didn't just close shop, but moved to more affordable locations. I would highly recommend stopping at the Pickle Pot, the owner is nice and knowledgeable, he even directed us to one of our favorite stores locations on Hawthorne Blvd, previously in Pickering Wharf. The restaurants survive, but the witch type shops seem to be dying out, maybe the craze is finally over?

Nice short movie to give you history of the ship trade. Great opportunity to tour ship in the wharf.

Pickering Wharf is a shopping area next to the marina/harbor area. There are plenty of halloween-ish shops, great restaurants, and look food areas. I would definitely recommend including this into your walk around Salem.

And Try FINZ restaurant if possible - Great Martinis!
