Where to stay

by RPadron99

I will be in Gloucester for a long weekend with my family in late May. I am hoping top stay in a central location in town that would allow me to walk to shops, restarants and taverns at night. Does this town have this kind of nightlife? If so, any good motel/Inn sugestions?

RE: Where to stay

If you're asking about Gloucester, Massachusetts, the only lodging in proximity to the downtown area would be small bed-and-breakfasts. There are several places to stay along the Back Shore on Atlantic Road that afford a spectacular ocean view, but you would find that nothing is within walking distance from them. There is 24-hour taxi service; the local buses don't run frequently enough to be particularly useful.

Travel Tips for Gloucester

Check out the Events at Hammond Castle

by RhondaRuth

If you want more than just a self tour, take the guided tour in the Hall or go when they are having an event. Fun for all ages! I went with my husband and two sister inlaws on a beautiful sunny day for a drive up to Gloucester. Since I had never been to the Castle, we stopped for a tour. Really nice! Then we went onto to Gloucester for lunch.

Some "Gloucester-isms"

by fdrich29

Some things to know when visiting this beautiful seaport...

We pronounce our city "Glosstah"

Route 128 ends here. It got a bit of an extension years ago, but that's about it. The highway just ends. If it were possible to extend it beyond the limits of Gloucester the next town you would encounter would be somewhere in Portugal.

The Blyman Bridge, which allows passage over the Annisquam River as it empties out into Gloucester Harbor, is more commonly referred to as the "Cut Bridge".

For many Gloucester residents, St. Joseph's Day and St. Peter's Fiesta are as much holidays as Christmas and Thankgiving. "Viva San Pietro!"

There is a very pituresque Back Shore of Gloucester, but don't ask where the Front Shore is.

Gloucester has many beautiful beaches. One endevoring to see them all would not be wasting his time. Just don't park in the Stop and Shop parking lot when going to Good Harbor, that's a big No No.

Moviegoers searching for the Crow's Nest will find it somewhat different from what they saw in on the big screen.

Outside of Boston's North End and perhaps Napoli itself, one will not find more authentic Italian restaurants and shops than on this island off the coast of Massachusetts . Valentino's, Sebastian's, Virgilios...a trip to Gloucester is not complete without eating at one or all of these establishments. Virgilio's bread is second to none.

There are few pleasures in life as grand as telling the guard at the entrance to Eastern Point Road "I'm going to the lighthouse" and driving past his car. There aren't many places on Earth as historic, beautiful and inspiring as Gloucester. Anyone who loves the ocean should consider Gloucester someplace they must see in their lifetime.

If it is a warm sunny day,...

by Cabana_Boy

If it is a warm sunny day, walk along the promenade boarding the harbor... The first time I came to Gloucester, I sat down on the grass along the promenade and got so relaxed that I actually fell asleep. It was one the best afternoon naps in my life. People walking by, dogs walking by, boats passing by in the harbor and I just slept on and on. I hadn't even been drinking,hahaha...

Cape Ann Garden Tour ~ Sargent House Museum

by Pawtuxet

The annual garden tour in Gloucester offers a fabulous way to see many "behind the scenes" views of the town ... not usually seen by the tourist or passerby. We made it a day trip and wished we could have spent another day to savor the beauty...or even complete the tour. So much to see, we had to skip a few of the sites.
The tour convenes at the Sargent House Museum where you pick up your tour book which describes the location of each garden as well as the landscape and specialty items featured. The map they include wasn't meant for people from out of town, so I would suggest a good local map in addition. Many of the gardens are tucked on tiny roadways where two cars can barely pass one another. As many times as I have been in and around Gloucester, this tour opened another whole image of the city for me. I highly recommend taking the opportunity of doing a garden tour or historic house tour in order to really get to know a city.

Fishtown Horrible's Parade

by fdrich29

An annual tradition in Gloucester that dates back to the 1920's. Held every year on the 3rd of July at 6pm, The Fishtown Horrible's Parade is a greatly anticipated event for the residents of Cape Ann. The parade features businesses, marching bands, musical floats, armed forces, police, fire and most importantly families and children. The route starts at Gloucester High School, takes a right onto Centennial Ave, a left onto Stacy Boulevard, then follows the Boulevard to Rogers Street, onto Manuel Lewis Road, Main Street, Pleasant Street, Prospect Street, Railroad Avenue, Washington Avenue, and then a left onto Centennial Ave, back to the high school. There are several categories of trophies awarded to outstanding floats. They include: Grand Theme, Best Business and Industry, Best Civic and Community, Best Religious and Fraternal, Best Neighborhood, Best Musical, Most Creative Float, Most Outstanding Horrible, and Best Horribles. Fireworks follow the parade at 10 PM and can best be viewed from Stacy Boulevard and Stage Fort Park. Or better yet, by boat in Gloucester Harbor.
