If you’re looking to explore early American history you don’t have to go much further than Salem, Massaachusetts. Settled by the Europeans in 1629, the town became an important seaport and trading hub. There was plenty of excitement to be found at the docks, and the port town had its run-ins with pirates throughout the decades. Salem also played a major role in the American Revolution and became a center for privateering.
