... is very hard but can be chewed as it is apparently made with a similar method to toffee and involves dipping! I have never made toffee and so this did not help me out any! I kept looking and saw a featured sweet called 'turtles' which Oprah Winphrey had resent my mentioned on her TV show and in a magazine as her favourite 'treat'! These turtles were chocolate (dark, milk or white), topped with caramel and either peanuts, pecans or walnuts (arranged to have four sticking out ...

We spent some time down by the wharf, and decided to catch the ferry back to Boston, rather than walk back across town to the train. Tough luck for us -we missed the ferry by 10mins, and the next one wasn't leaving for over two hours! Taxi back to the train station it was then, where luckily we arrived just as a Boston train was ...
... executed - a notorious case of paranoia and mass hysteria. Eventually in 1702 the trials were declared unlawful, and those executed were officially pardoned in 1711. On the 300th anniversary, a memorial garden was opened in Salem - there is a granite bench for each victim, and a fresh rose is placed on each bench every day. Bridget Bishop (see photo) was the first of the accused to be executed.

We are joining a group of 20 Jewish leaders to plumb the depths of those traditions that were forged in our struggles in Mother Russia and Poland and to derive lessons on how to incorporate those traditions and experiences into our modern institutions of Jewish life – our synagogues, camps, Jewish Day Schools, Federations, and college ...
... Witch Dungeon Museum which was billed as having an "award winning reenactment" of a witch trial. The narrator gave some good information before the performance and there were plaques on the wall that gave information also which was helpful to prepare for the performance.

Historical Traveler Reviews Morning Glory Bed & Breakfast Salem
Great Experience! My wife and I stayed at the Morning Glory in early June 05, and had a really fantastic time. Friendly and helpful service from Bob Shea, not to mention great home made pastries and the best fresh fruit for breakfast. Cozy rooms with antique furniture were a pleasure. Shared a lovely common lounge with TV and kitchenette. It was there that we met some very nice people, friendly and out-going, who come back every year to enjoy this small gem.
It's located an easy walk away from Salem's museums and attractions. (The Peabody Essex is a new favorite!) Close to shopping, as well as many fine restaurants and reasonable priced eateries.
Had a truly great time at the Morning Glory, and in Salem. Hope to be back soon.
Home Away From Home
Our hosts were excellent. They were native to Salem and always willing to suggest where to go or what to do. The house was extremely well decorated and cared for. We would recommend it to anyone!
Great Vacation Stay
We had a wonderful time at the Morning Glory. Bob is wonderfully hospitable, making sure that you see all there is to Salem. The house was like being at home, from the great common area to lounge in and meet other guests to the comfortable bed and spacious bedroom. Thanks for making our vacation great Bob!
A great bed and breakfast in Salem!!!!!
This was our first time in a b&b. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more. Perfectly situated in Salem - not too far from all the attractions, but far enough from the traffic. From the minute we stepped in to the beautifully decorated room, all of the stress from daily life seemed to melt away. Bob was a great host!!!

We just got back from a stay at the Morning Glory B&B, and I want to share that the location is terrific if you want to be within walking distance of the historic attractions of Salem, right near the water, and this lovely B&B that has wonderful common areas and very pretty rooms. It was very quiet, and the innkeeper is very friendly, not not intrusive. I highly recommend this B&B.
Glorious Morning Glory
As movie reviewers, we tend to be fairly critical. So believe us when we tell you that the Morning Glory B & B in Salem, MA is everything you could want in a home away from home. The rooms are beautifully appointed, extremely clean and comfortable. Bob Shea, the owner, does a terrific job making you feel at home by providing all the creature comforts, including a tasty breakfast, which features fresh fruit and home made goodies. The Morning Glory is perfectly situated near all the tourist hot spots, but not too close to traffic on the main drags. We look forward to our next visit to Salem and the Morning Glory B & B.

The Morning Glory is a wonderful and comfortable place to stay! The rooms are very comfortable and quiet! The view of the water is terrific!! We have stayed there several times and each time was a wonderful experience. Bob goes out of his way to make his guest comfortable. We highly recommend The Morning Glory to anyone wishing a great place to vacation in Salem!
I stayed at The Morning Glory a few summers ago and loved it. Very comfortable, clean, convenient, quiet and the roof deck was certainly nice to sit out on. The breakfasts always had a nice variety and a cut above typical New England continental breakfasts. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
The Best time ever!
My daughter, a friend and I just returned from a three night stay at the Morning Glory .
Having been to Salem several times I must say that the Morning Glory was by far the best B&B we have stayed in.
Bob was away for the weekend, but I soon realized that we were left in very capable hands.
Bob's parents were the best. I truely felt like I was home.
Our breakfast was excellent and our rooms immaculate.
Squeaky came to visit us each morning. This only added to our fun!
Great location. You can walk to everything.
Thank you Bob and Maryann
We will be back.
Loved staying at The Morning Glory
I stayed at the Morning Glory over a year aga and loved it. We had our own private entrance in the back to get to our room and it was very convienant for us to come and go during our stay. The place was beautiful and we loved the cat that lives there. She came and visited us a few times. One final note the place could be haunted... When I developed a picture of the rom there appears to be an image in the mirror... I will be back!
