My wife and I are planning a visit to Boston and the Cape in mid September. We're planning on spending 2 days in Boston and then thought of heading north for one night before we head back south to Chatham on the Cap for 4 nights. Based on the Forum, we thought we'd take the car north to Salem and then overnight in Gloucester before we then drive the 2.5 hours back through Boston and then on to Chatham.
What do you think? Does this route make sense? Is it worth it divert through Salem for a few hours before we then overnight in Gloucester? We're entirely flexible.
