gloucester waterfront photoIt's great just to walk along the boardwalk on a sunny day to watch the boats, catch the ocean breeze, and visit the famous Fisherman statue at the fisherman's memorial.

There is a nifty drawbridge that rises frequently to let bigger boats through from the bay. This is a safe and entertaining way to see boats closeup - great for toddlers and kids of all ages.

Kick back and grab a refreshment at one of the local ice cream shops, go for a swim at one of the famous Gloucester beaches or just relax on a chair and gaze at the boats and the ocean. You'll have a great time!

Plus, Gloucester offers a number of interesting venues to visit including Hammond Castle or Wingaersheek Beach, one of many glorious beaches in the Gloucester area. You can also take to the seas for a fun whale watching tour. There are several to choose from - BostonCentral recommends Cape Ann Whale Watching Tours.

There are many other events and festivals that take place throughout the year in Gloucester. Be sure to check out the Gloucester events calendar for upcoming activities in the area.
