Join us on the last Saturday of the month at 10:00 a.m. outside the Salem Maritime National Historic Site Visitors Center on 2 New Liberty Street.

Highlighted sights include stops at the Salem Common, the grounds of the House of the Seven Gables, Derby Wharf, and a sprint up Chestnut Street—often called one of the most beautiful streets in America.
