Location

Car: Recommended

Gloucester, settled in 1623, is America's oldest seaport. Situated at the center of Cape Ann, Gloucester has one of the finest harbors in Massachusetts and remains one of the busiest fishing ports on the Eastern seaboard. Visitors are drawn to Gloucester's rich history, natural beauty, incredible beaches, fresh seafood, and on-water activities, especially the popular whale watch excursions. Gloucester also hosts a sizable artist population, many of whom can be found on Rocky Neck, the oldest working art colony in America.

Dine at the many fine waterfront restaurants and experience some of the world's freshest seafood.

Sunbathe & boogie board on beautiful Good Harbor beach.

Visit Rocky Neck Art Colony & the 3 great waterfront restaurants/bars on the neck (a real boating and music 'scene').

Sunset cruise on the beautiful schooner 'Thomas E. Lannon'.

Whale watch & deep sea fishing excursions.

Lots of night life/ music & great seafood restaurants..

Other Activities: kayaking

 

Owner info

About the owner: This is our 9th year of renting 'A Sunset Serenade' studio and we just love meeting all the wonderful folks who come from far and near to enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Hank and I grew up on Cape Ann and have lived in Gloucester for 30+ years... we wouldn't have it any other way! Linda is a jazz vocalist/artist, and Hank is a master carpenter/avid boater.
