Andrew - if you like Cape Cod...you should spend a weekend in Rockport, MA. My wife grew up there and it is unbelievable! The nicest little town I have ever been in. All I want to do when I retire is move to Rockport and get a small lobster boat with about 10 traps...just enough to keep me busy!


Rockport is really nice. I used to get the bike on the comuter rail go to the beach in Manchester by the Sea for a while, bike up to Rockport, have some ice cream and bike back. Nice little sunday trip.

If you do decide you go you should give me a shout...we go there quite often and we could meet up! Her parents still live there. From her bedroom window she had when she was a kid, you can see the ocean. It is an amazing place!


Will do! My wife likes the idea - we'll likely make a trip up there next fall smile.gif

Rockport is my favorite place to ride my bike. Beautiful 15 mile loop I like to take that follows the coastline. Best part...you are right at sea level so TONS of oxygen!

I grew up in a big movie town in the US and most of the places where they say the location is usually isn't. I've seen my town transformed into Boston, NYC and small towns in New England to name a few.......but I grew up in a middle sized city in North Carolina. Anyway, I also used to be in a band that spent a lot of time touring and I've toured the US quite a few times. So, I've seen a good portion of the US and some of my favorite cities are:

1.Athens, Ga
2.Austin, Tx
3.DC
4.Charleston, SC
5.Nashville, Tn
6.Savannah, Ga
7.San Diego, Ca
8.Monterey, Ca
9.Saratoga Springs, NY (summer months...winter is very cold and snowy)
10.and of course, my home town Wilmington, NC

Another great North American city to travel to is Montreal. It's an incredibly beautiful city with a ton of character. All of these cities are mid sized to large, but all of them have a lot of character and I've always enjoyed visiting them. Also, I'm southern, so I prefer southern cities hince the reason most of these are south of the mason dixon. I hope this helps.
