Peabody Essex Museum, Salem

A date night at the Peabody Essex will catapult you quickly past small talk as you roam the museum’s collections of historic artifacts, Asian art, and fashion and textiles. Stroll through an authentic 18th-century Chinese home reassembled on site, delve into Salem’s history, or explore style through the ages in the fashion and design exhibit. The charms of downtown Salem are right outside the museum doors to continue the enjoyment with dinner, coffee, or some unparalleled people-watching. 161 Essex St., Salem, 978-745-9500,
