Neighboring Derby Wharf forms the backdrop to the July 4 fireworks display, which was an amazing sight! They lasted a full 30 minutes or so and were set to music played by a full orchestra.

Having been a Boston resident for about 5 years, it was extremely difficult to leave the city limits! However, being in Salem has made the transition from city life a little less dramatic than it would have been had I moved to true suburbia. It is rich in culture and also provides a fairly vibrant restaurant and bar scene. It also has the added benefit of much more affordable housing prices (a much appreciated trait for me 8 months ago)! Nonetheless, if I ever find myself in need of a Boston night out, at least I know I'm only a 20 minute train ride away!
