Weekend in Gloucester
With pre-Revolutionary architecture and secluded beaches near Boston, this sprawling city is a rare combination of urban spirit and historic charm.
BeachesThere is a variety of sandy shores from which to choose:
Good Harbor Beach
In East Gloucester, this bustling beach is the place to be in the summer.
Wingaersheek's shallow waters and gentle waves make this an ideal beach for kids.
This quieter beach in Magnolia is a favorite spot for nature lovers. It’s populated with beach pea and beach rose, and an array of gulls.
