Massachusetts Things to Do: 204 reviews and 272 photos
If you're annoyed by the crowds and suburbanisation of Cape Cod, head to the state's other and lesser known cape, <b>Cape Ann</b>. Home to beaches with colder water but mopre spectacular scenery, and towns with less out-of-state tourists and more fishermen, Cape Ann is quintessential coastal New England at its finest. See Manchester-by-the-Sea, revered for its beautiful harbour and clapboard white town centre. Gloucester (pronounced Glou-sta) is a fairly large town which has been made famous by various fishing epics such as <i>The Perfect Storm</i>. Ipswich has interesting antiques shops and beautiful salt marshes. Rockport, at the Cape's tip, features a beautiful town centre and an almost picture-perfect harbour that's been captured by hundreds of artists on film and canvas.
