Greetings from: Massachusetts

The Stuck at the Airport crew is on a road trip in Massachusetts.

And we’re taking in some of the classics, including looking for lobster and eating at classic diners.

Museums are on the list, of course. And we made a stop in Salem, MA to visit the Peabody Essex Museum, which has a wonderful exhibition about the city that goes way beyond the witches.

We were delighted to learn that Alexander Graham Bell completed the first successful long-distance telephone call from Salem in 1877. And that the Parker Brothers game and toy company, now a Hasbro brand, was founded in Salem in the late 1880s.
