Itinerary for one day. Am I missing anything?

Doing the Mahi Mahi cruise on Sunday from 12 to 2

eating late lunch either at Finz's or Turners

Plan on walking around town and taking in the sites.

Doing night tour and afterwards take in a light bite at either Rockafellas or hotel.(staying at Salem waterfront)

Do I need to add another tour such as the witch trials, dungeon tour, etc to get the true flavor?

Trying not to cram too much into the day as we leave first thing the next day in to Maine.

What tours are you actually taking? That's not obvious, just where you plan to eat.

The Peabody Essex Museum is good and the Witch trials are part of the tragic history of Salem more than the kitschy ghosts st stuff.

I don’t think you need to worry too much about tours. As noted above, Salem has an important maritime history in addition to its association with the witch trials. The Peabody Essex Museum focuses on that history and is the city’s star attraction. You can also visit the Maritime National Historic Site. The ranger-guided tours there are excellent.

I'm sure museums lovely but not what our group was looking to do. we only there for half day basically and wanted the touristy cheezy stuff just for something different. Doing heritage things in Boston while there so looking for something fun.

Thank you all for your input though
