Scenic Lookout
“File this under D for Demented.... A hand dug cave, dug by a man directed by ghosts in search of pirate treasure... Lynn, is close to Salem. It is kind of a scary neighborhood. Don't be alone there at night. As the old rhyme goes.... Lynn Lynn city of sin, you never go out the way you came in.”

Donut Shop

“Visit the original Kane's and try some of their incredible donuts. You could visit the shop in Boston, but it's not the same. You get a real feel for the neighborhood and people by going to the original location. Get there early because they do close early. ”

“I mention this for TJ's aficionados, because it is a 10-minute drive away. So many choices, and for a quick and affordable meal in I love their frozen section. It's provided many delicious meals of Indian food for my family, but there are many other selections and cuisines too! Varied cheese section (get your Gruyere or Fontina for fondue!), good bread. Don't forget to pick up a nice tarte or ice cream for dessert. ”
