For nearly 400 years,

Gloucester has been a city of explorers, fishermen, artists and dreamers. With over 60 miles of coastline there are a wealth of stunning views to enjoy. We have world-class museums to explore, beaches to stroll, and art galleries to visit. As a real, working fishing community there is plenty of fresh seafood at every turn, and lots of other gourmet goodies, too. And did we mention the whale watching, schooner sails, harbor tours and other ways to get on the water? From St. Peter’s Fiesta to the Schooner Festival, with lots in between (hometown July 4th fun, monthly downtown block parties, Nights on the Neck, the Blackburn Challenge, the Blues Festival, just to name a few), there is always fun to be found in Gloucester.  There’s so much to do, so much to see, you’ll want to stay a little longer!
