Exploring the area

Planning on visiting Cape Ann for three nights. Was thinking of basing ourselves in Newburyport (technically not Cape Ann). But if we want to visit Rockport, Essex (for antiques) and Gloucester (for whale watch) does Newburyport make sense? I'm assuming it's easy to drive to the these other towns. At the end we are off to Boston. Thanks for your thoughts.

Newburyport to Rockport takes about an hour to drive, if you are going to go down that way for 2 days in a row, you're spending quite a few hours just getting there and back
