If you want history, great food, and comfortable accommodations this fall, come to Danvers, Massachusetts. It’s a historic New England town with a modern twist, so it’s a place where you can get the best of both worlds.
Great Hotel Booking Options
Step one of any vacation, no matter how long or short the length, is to find a place to stay. It should be conveniently located, comfortable, have all of the amenities you need, and be in your budget.
DoubleTree by Hilton Boston North Shore
The DoubleTree by Hilton is the perfect hotel for any family on vacation. Not only is it conveniently located within driving distance to Salem, Gloucester, and Boston, but it’s also connected to Danvers’ very own indoor water park, Water Park of New England. This means there’s fun for everyone to enjoy no matter the weather, itinerary, or transportation.
Residence Inn Boston North Shore/Danvers
If you’re planning on a longer stay in Danvers, your best bet for a home away from home is the Residence Inn. This all-suite hotel will feel more like apartment living than a guest room, as the rooms feature full kitchens, separate living and sleeping areas, and TVs with 26 HD channels. Start your day with a free hot breakfast and end it with the complimentary evening Social Hour on certain weeknights.
Danvers was originally known as “Salem Village,” and its history is closely entwined with the Salem Witch Trials. While Danvers has become a destination all its own, it’s important to remember the past. That’s why, if you’re planning on partaking in any of the exciting fall events in Salem, you should first visit the Witchcraft Victims’ Memorial. Erected in 1992, it pays tribute to the twenty-five innocent people who died during the witchcraft hysteria in 1692.
Food to Warm You Up
Fall in New England can be chilly, so it’s important to have ways to warm up. One of the best ways to do this is with good, hot food and drinks. Luckily for you, Danvers is far from short on those.
A steaming, hot cup of coffee feels amazing on a cold autumn morning, and Kaffmandu has some of the best beans in town. Their fair-trade organic roasts will leave you feeling good from both the caffeine and the knowledge that you’re being socially-conscious. If coffee isn’t your thing, you can also enjoy tea, hot breakfast sandwiches, paninis, and more that will both fill and warm you up.
Torito Mexican Restaurant
A lively restaurant, Torito Mexican Restaurant provides one of the best atmospheres in Danvers while using top quality ingredients in their food. Sit down and dine on steak matador, chile verde, queso dip, tacos, quesadillas, burritos, and more. The chilly fall winds stand no chance against the heat from both the spices in these dishes and the warm, welcoming atmosphere you’ll get the moment you walk in.
If you plan on visiting New England this fall, make Danvers your home base. Delicious food, great local attractions, and amazing places to stay are right at your fingertips.
