North of Boston/Merrimack Valley welcome romantic vacationers

North of Boston and the Salem area are spectacular year-round for their beaches, whale-watching (seasonal), art and history museums, and galleries. October brings Halloween to the town of Salem, which is a whole other saga. The region welcomes guests for romantic weekend getaways at all times, opening doors to luxury hotels, inns, resorts, and bed and breakfast inns. As is the case all along the Massachusetts coast, seafood dining is the tops and the chance to take nature walks on or near the shore should not be missed.
