“Gloucester’s heroes are fishermen and carpenters. Gloucester is proud to be a working class town.”

Israel Horowitz
Playwright, Founding Artistic Director / Gloucester Stage Co.

For nearly 400 years,

Gloucester has been a city of explorers, fishermen, artists and dreamers. With over 60 miles of coastline, there is a wealth of stunning views to enjoy. We have world-class museums to explore, gorgeous beaches to stroll, and interesting art galleries to visit.

With an active working harbor, there’s plenty of fresh seafood around every corner, and lots of other gourmet goodies too. Did we mention the whale watching, schooner sails, harbor tours and other ways to get on the water?

St. Peter’s Fiesta, a world class 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.  So much to do, so much to see, you’ll want to stay a little longer!
