    My beau and I were looking for an affordable accommodation in walking distance to the historic area and we found it. Spacious room, clean, nice hotel lobby person. Not luxury. 80's style vibe in terms of decor. Thank you Clipper Ship!

    Can anyone advise the best way to get a taxi from Boston Logan to Salem? Is there plenty avaliable at the airport on the day that would travel to Salem or are we best to pre-book a service? Thank you in advance.

    Yes, if you like to walk it's probably 20 minutes from downtown. My son and I did it several times when we stayed at the Clipper Shop Inn. If you decide that you don't want to walk, a cab ride is only a few dollars.
