Salisbury Chamber of Commerce
Salisbury, established in 1638, is one of the oldest towns in Massachusetts. There are many historical homes and sites throughout the town and was instrumental in the early overland trade routes to the north. Salisbury is an ideal vacation spot that has been a vacation destination for decades. It boasts a scenic five mile long sandy ocean beach that features modern facilities, swimming and lifeguards. It is an easy vacation commute to Boston (40 minutes), New Hampshire (10 minutes) and Maine (30 minutes). The town offers restaurants, small shops, motel or ocean front cottage rentals, weekly fireworks, concerts and many other summer activities. Salisbury is also bordered by the Merrimack River that flows into the Atlantic Ocean where one can take fishing and whale watching cruises or just take a jog, casual stroll or bike ride among the unspoiled marshes on the paved Coastal Trails Network. Lodging options include five campgrounds that collectively have over 1,000 campsites and feature wooded or sites that are directly on the beach.
