I was hoping I can get recommendations on a good itinerary. I am planning to go sometime next week. I read whale watching is the main attraction in Gloucester and it was where the perfect storm was filmed. Unfortunately all I really know. I am interested in whale watching but afraid of rough seas and perhaps will take up much time? I just wanted something that lets make take in what Gloucester is about. Is it just hanging and walking in rockport? Getting some fresh catch on the harbor? I want something unique to experience in that area.
As far as Salem I understand it's a town passed on the way to Boston and figure why not check out some history with the witchcraft tales and all.
So if someone has done these two in a day road trip from Boston, I'd love some ideas :) we are active and open minded. Will be a group of 4 first time in this area.
