We headed over to the harbor to catch a ride on the Fame. Fame is a replica schooner that takes tourists on a 1.75hr tour on Salem Sound. Though the tour isn't technically narrated, the captain tells the story of original Fame that captured many enemy merchant ships during the war of 1812. If you are so included, you can also participate in some of the sailing tasks.

After returning to Salem, we had an early dinner and then walked around. There is a lot of charm to Salem. Their harbor area is a little touristy, but not crowded with annoying people, at least on this weekend before the big 4th of July holiday. We had a fun and relaxing time.
