Pickering Wharf Tours

A quaint waterfront area of Salem, Pickering Wharf is home to a variety of small shops, restaurants, and boutiques lining the harbor. Salem was one of America’s primary seaports, and the marina full of docked boats continues the tradition. Well-marked signs share some of the neighborhood’s history, while the shops feature unique arts and crafts, botanicals, antiques, and souvenirs — many with a boutique feel.  Area restaurants feature fresh seafood from the local waters, some with views of the sea from their dining tables. 

You can take a relaxing seaside stroll down to the local lighthouse, or see some of the historic ships docked in Salem Bay. The historic schooner ‘Friendship of Salem’ is often open for exploration. Or, as the locals do and pick up a fishing pole and perhaps catch your own dinner! Seasonal special events as well as a First Friday shopping night occur frequently.

Practical Info

Pickering Wharf is located in downtown Salem, near the intersection of Derby and Congress Streets. It is free to visit, though you’ll likely want a jacket to keep you warm as temperatures are often cooler next to the water. Shop and restaurant hours vary.
