We will be in Rockport during the week after July 4th. We will be riding the commuter train up from Boston but may be interested in exploring some other seaside towns close by. Especially in the evening, we might like to step in somewhere and have a glass of wine and chat with local folks. Any ideas? Cab or any public transport? Should we buy a bottle of wine before we leave Boston to enjoy on the beach? We have a room booked at the Eagle House Motel. I am hoping this is still a good choice. I booked this after reading reports on Trip Advisor. Thanks for any tips! Also how late does the train return from Salem? As we will go down and do the tourist thing one day.
