Discover Beautiful Cape Ann ...
Always famous for its fishing industry, Gloucester today is bustling with large fishing boats, fish processing plants, boatyards, and wonderful seafood restaurants. Make
a stop for a photo at the famous Fisherman’s Statue, “Man at the Wheel”
located on the Gloucester Boulevard, overlooking the harbor. Also see the Fishermen’s Wives Memorial with the wife and child watching the horizon for
the fisherman's return from the sea.
Hear about the eccentric inventor John Hays Hammond who built his castle
on Gloucester Harbor. If your group has time, add in a tour of this unique castle.
Continue through East Gloucester and drive past Bass Rocks where the term
“rock bound coast of New England” will come to life.
Rockport, designated by Walt Disney as one of the most picturesque towns in
America, is famous for its art colony located on Bearskin Neck. Time can be
allowed for browsing the galleries, specialty shops, or the many fine eateries located here.
If your group is interested, a Whale Watch Excursion can be arranged from
Gloucester. While the area has many fine eating establishments, may we suggest
dining at one that will serve you a traditional New England Lobster Bake to
round out your day of touring Cape Ann.
