Welcome to Gloucester, Massachusetts

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 whale watching, schooner sails, harbor tours and other ways to enjoy ?

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). Whether you’re looking for a fun day trip with the kids, or an extended vacation by the sea, Gloucester has so much to do and see, you’ll want to stay a little longer!
