Salem is located just north of Boston on scenic Cape Ann (a mirror to Cape Cod). The town is served by Boston’s Logan Airport and the Manchester, New Hampshire Airport.
We recommend contracting with a shuttle service to get you to and from the airport. (We’ve heard that Boston drivers can be quite aggressive, but honestly, we don’t know what they’re talking about.)
The average cost for a one-way sedan trip from Boston’s Logan airport is $55 (with gratuity). The average cost for a one-way sedan trip from Manchester’s Regional Airport is $165 (with gratuity).
Our Preferred Vendors:
Please be sure to budget in a 40-minute drive to/from Boston and a 75-minute drive to/from Manchester.
