The Boston to Gloucester Package
Where: Beauport Hotel, 55 Commercial Street, Gloucester
When: Available Sundays through Thursdays
How much: Starting at $399 per night

No traffic, no parking, no stress. Thanks to a new package from Gloucester’s Beauport Hotel, you can escape to the coast without ever having to open your Waze app. The hotel’s “Boston to Gloucester” deal includes roundtrip train fare from Boston to the North Shore, making for an easy, breezy mid-week getaway.

The trip starts when you board your train at North Station. After a 60-minute ride, you’re picked up at Gloucester’s MBTA station and whisked to Beauport in a hotel shuttle. Then, when you arrive, all you have to do is relax. You can kick back in your oceanfront room, walk along the beach, rent a paddleboard, or lay out by the pool. And the next morning, breakfast at Beauport’s 1606 Restaurant & Bar is included. Oh, and when you’re done exploring Gloucester, give our Rockport day trip itinerary a try.
