Cape Ann, Salem & Boston, MA (Post-Trip)

FROM $1,299 PER PERSON | 3 DAYS | $433 PER DAY

When settlers arrived on Cape Ann in 1623, they declared its waters the best fishing grounds in the New World. Some things never change. Four hundred years on, the “Other Cape” of Massachusetts (its most famous is Cape Cod) remains steeped in the traditions and charms of its fishing village origins. Prolong your stay in Boston, and you’ll experience them firsthand during visits to Rockport, home to a thriving artists’ community; Gloucester, renowned for its fishing past; and Salem, with its witchy and seafaring past. Depending on your departure, you’ll visit Salem during peak Halloween festivities, so get ready for a day full of breathtaking coastal vistas, spellbinding history, and more opportunities for autumnal leaf-peeping. Plus, an additional day in Boston lets you delve more deeply into its sophisticated culture.

Your Price Includes:
  • 2 nights accommodations at the Deluxe Westin Copley Place (or similar)
  • 3 meals: 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner
  • Tour to Rockport, Gloucester, and Salem

DAY 15:

Coastal gems of Cape Ann: Rockport, Gloucester & Salem

Today, you’ll head north of Boston to explore the beauty of Cape Ann — “the North Shore” in local parlance. Head first to Rockport, an art lover’s haven of pretty piers and fishing boats bobbing in the harbor. There’ll be time to explore its galleries and shops and admire the most painted fishing shack in the U.S., a quaint charmer affectionately known as Motif No. 1. In Gloucester, view the Fisherman’s Memorial, dedicated to those who have lost their lives at sea. Then, continue to Salem, where the witch hysteria of the 1600s gripped the region. You'll see this town gripped by a newer phenomenon, however — Halloween! This is when the city comes alive. Stop by the Salem Witch Museum to get in the swing of things and learn more about the witchy history here, then explore on your own. Tonight, Boston offers countless dining options for dinner on your own.
