Gloucester — 7 nights

Sandy Bay

The still waters off the Gloucester shore are immortalized in paintings and prints produced by the hundreds of artists who visit this town.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Wingaersheek Beach and Beauport, the Sleeper-McCann House. Venture out of the city with trips to Fort Sewall (in Marblehead), Salem (Peabody Essex Museum, The House of the Seven Gables, &more) and Parker River National Wildlife Refuge (in Newburyport). There's still lots to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, don't miss a visit to Gloucester Fishermen's Wives Memorial, learn insider's secrets on Ryan & Wood Distilleries, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Front Beach.

Charlotte to Gloucester is an approximately 3.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to catch the flight back home.
