Hi there! I've posted this on a few MA sections hoping to get some cheerful replies :)
We just got engaged (!!) and we're looking to celebrate in the Upper New England area. We'd be going for five days (end of June until the end of 4th of July Weekend). I've been looking at Rockport and Gloucester, and since they are so close we'll visit both, but need to pick a "home base".
I'm not sure which will be more "touristy" (does it get unpleasantly crowded at that time?), but the idea is to have a romantic time together, visit a few things (any suggestions?) and go to the beach. We're hoping to spend less than $120 a night so that we can splurge on some good restaurants.
What do you think? What should we do/see, and where should we stay as a "home base"?
Thank you so much!
