Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby mesmerized audiences across the globe, which is no surprise as the tale of Jay Gatsby’s life of lust and luxury has long been a captivating story.

Today’s discerning traveler can experience the modern Gatsby getaway in the City-by-the-Sea by experiencing mansion events, cruising on a wooden yacht that was once a Prohibition-era rum runner, rooftop champagne toasts and more, all less than a gas tank away from Boston and New York.
