Known as “America’s oldest seaport”, Gloucester was the largest fishing port in America in the second half of the 19th century, and one of the top five ports in the world at that time. In addition to its contributions to the fishing industry, Gloucester also produced granite in nearby quarries as well as a thriving art community. Founded in 1623, the city is less than one hour north of Boston, directly on the Atlantic Ocean. Gloucester is one of four communities (Essex, Rockport, and Manchester-by-the-Sea are the other three communities) that make up the Cape Ann district.
My family visited Gloucester as a child (remember, I’m originally a Bostonian) but I had not visited in years when I read about a few places (here and here) that made Yankee Magazine’s Best of New England lists. My list of must see spots grew when I started reading more on DiscoverGloucester.com. I knew we needed get into town this year.
