Peabody, Massachusetts, is a next-door neighbor of the famous town of Salem. Whether you're heading in that direction for some spooky late-night ghost tours or you want to learn more about lifestyles in colonial America, check out Travelocity's Peabody packages for savings and convenience.
While staying in Peabody, you'll want to visit the George Peabody House Museum, one of the biggest historical attractions in the town. Then, check out Peabody car rentals in order to head on over to nearby Salem, a 10-minute drive away. Here you can uncover the story of the witch trials at the Salem Witch Trials Memorial or take a walking tour of the area (either in daylight or after dark for a more haunting experience). The Salem Maritime National Historic Site can give you a glimpse into maritime life of the day. Nearby, the Saugus Iron Works National Historic Site offers a life-sized snapshot of an idyllic workshop complete with water wheels and mills (and the river that worked them).
The one-day Peabody International Festival is held in September to celebrate all the ethnicities that have worked their way into the town's history over the years. You can try a number of cultural foods, view international art displays, and be entranced by live performances of ethnic music and dance. If you're not traveling in September, consider a Peabody vacation package for October so you can participate in nearby Salem's Festival of the Dead. At this event, you can explore the Psychic Fair and Witchcraft Expo, attend a seance, and much more.
