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').
