Dine al fresco at the Beauport and/or sing along at the piano bar at the Studio restaurant in Rocky Neck’s artist community. Travel down Marmion Way to see where the cast of the Perfect Storm was housed during the filming. As far as we know there is no plaque saying George Clooney slept here to help you identify which private houses were leased. If you can’t make it to Sicily, come to the Blessing of the Fleet that takes place the last week of June where daring/crazy (?) people scoot out across the harbor on a long greased pole. This is one of only two places on earth where this is done (MAYBE BECAUSE IT HURTS?).
