Thanks VT for rating this page Top 5!!

I am employed in the tourism industry in Gloucester, Massachusetts. I lived here between 1994-2003, when I relocated to Louisiana, and moved back again after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005.

I am very pleased to have another opportunity to enjoy all the things I missed when I was living down South. There's nothing like watching the full moon over the ocean while standing on the Back Shore in East Gloucester. And I'll gladly trade crawfish for lobster anyday!

No visit to New England is complete without visiting the Cape Ann region of Massachusetts -- come see for yourself!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Dramatic oceanfront scenery
  • Cons:Obscenely high cost of housing
  • In a nutshell:Come visit before too many people discover it!

    The Willow Rest is really making progress! They now have beer, wine, cakes, and delicious meals to-go. Stop by and taste what's cookin'!

    I love this city and your pictures are great! When I was in college I used to go to the St. Peter festival here every year with my friend from Sicily. Even now I feel that it is the one of the only "real" communities left on the north shore.
