How Phoebe Cole Sees Salem

One of the best ways to experience Salem and New England is from the water. One of the best ways to do that in Salem is aboard Mahi Mahi Cruises. Cruising out of Salem Willows, Mahi Mahi offers narrated tours of the harbors and coastline, thematic cruises (including Cape Ann Brewing, Lighthouses, Fireworks), and a great opportunity to get away from it all.

This week we are hearing from Mahi Mahi Manager Phoebe Cole, and how she sees Salem.

Where are you from?

How long have you worked in Salem?
Five Years

Your Top Five:
  1. Place to eat: Finz
  2. Place to shop: Roost and The Behive
  3. Special Event: Farmers' Market tied with the Salem Jazz & Soul Festival at Salem Willows!
  4. Museum or Attraction: Salem Trolley, and although I’ve never tried it Salem Kayak seems like a great new addition to the park, can’t wait to try ‘em out!
  5. Hidden Gem:
    Can I say Rudder, our boat dog? He’s just so handsome. I guess it’s not so hidden but I’m gonna go with Passage to India, so good!
What or where do you recommend to guests from out of town?
To be honest, we bring them on a cruise; it’s a great way to see the entire area without all the hassle. I’m also a fan of simply relaxing and grabbing a drink at Vic Station or any of the great restaurants right on the Wharf.

Describe Salem in ten words or less:
A beautifully unique sea-side city rich with history and itching to be discovered and explored. There’s more to Salem than October, come discover it!
