Take a trip to the wharf. There are a fine collection of shops and restaurants with fantastic seafood. Easy to get around and just wander.

I visited the Wharf while staying in Salem in mid-October, we stayed nearby and walked around the Wharf. The ship was not there (being repaired elsewhere) but the views are nice and there are lots of little shops nearby.

We walked around here while exploring Salem. It is in the middle of the seaport area. Very easy to access and close to places to eat, shop and explore.
