Just got back from a week trip to Boston and Glouchester. I went back and forth about whether to stay in Glouchester or Rockport. I'm very happy that we chose Glouchester. We spent the day in Rockport and it felt like any other tourist town. Glouchester is a fishing town and had a real down to earth feel about it. We stayed right on the ocean at the Bass Rocks Inn. All in all, it was a great end to our vacation.
