Located at Salem Harbor, the wharf is delightful in a number of ways. The view is to die for, the salty scent of the air is invigorating (especially on rainy, crisp days), and it’s filled with colorful people and places. There are tons of amazing restaurants here, especially Victoria Station, and plenty of neat shops as well.
