In-laws live in Rockport and don't like to drive into the city. We live in Somerville and don't always like to make the trek up to Rockport.
Is there anything approximately mid-way that is worth going to? Though we are looking for a place specifically to celebrate a birthday this weekend, this is a constant issue, so any suggestions are VERY appreciated.
Rte 1 seems to be a total wasteland, but plese feel free to correct me if I have overlooked a hidden gem (or even someplace passable)!
Thanks so much!
