2 days 4/15-4/16 short trip from Boston

Visiting my college daughter in Boston want to visit a bit outside Boston. Was considering the North Shore. Any particular town, lodges to consider?

A bit concerned about the weather...?

I guess I will ask, how far out of Boston do you wish to be?

You state you are concerned about weather on those dates.

Try this website to get an idea - accuweather.com/en/…348735

Good Luck & Enjoy your Stay

Salem has a wonderful museum, the Peabody Essex museum. They also have smaller museums that showcase the witch trials of history and also the pirates that used to sale here.

Rockport has shops and restaurants and the prettiest antique architecture and beautiful views. Also, dozens of art galleries.

For lodging, look at theinnsofrockport.com for choices of B&B's in Rockport.

Weather this time of year is unpredictable. Two days ago, it was windy and cold. Tomorrow it is forecast to be up to 80 degrees.

I was in Rockport last weekend (1st and 2nd) and lots of the shops on Bearskin Neck were closed. (As was the case in Provincetown yesterday). Will more be opened by Easter weekend.)

Personally I LOVE the quiet ... but others may not share my opinion.
