Full description
Travel north from Boston to historic Marblehead, the birthplace of the American Navy, while enjoying the rugged coastal view from Castle Rock, a unique New England panorama. Make a stop at Abbott Hall to hear a short lecture and view the original 7' x 10' oil painting titled "The Spirit of '76", once known only as Yankee Doodle. This painting symbolized the spirit of the American Revolution and has been called the "most patriotic painting in the world."

Next, head to Salem – famous for the Salem Witch Trials of 1692. There are a wealth of interesting places to visit related to the Witch Trials as well as maritime and literary connections.
