With over 60 miles of coastline, Gloucester MA real estate properties feature some stunning views all year long. Gloucester is the home of America’s original seaport and boasts Rocky Neck as the oldest working Art Colony in North America. Gloucester is also where the Hollywood movie, “The Perfect Storm” was filmed.
As an important center of the fishing industry and a popular summer destination, Gloucester has an urban core with the outlying neighborhoods of Annisquam, Bay View, Lanesville, Folly Cove, Magnolia, Riverdale, East Gloucester and West Gloucester.
You can watch huge whales breach on a whale-watching trip off Gloucester’s rocky shore, go sailing on a schooner, try Deep Sea fishing, take a harbor tour, bask in the sun on any of Gloucester’s 8 sandy beaches, or visit lighthouses dating from the 1780’s. You can enjoy a meal in any of Gloucester’s 120 restaurants and taste the freshest seafood anywhere.
Stage Fort Park offers a superb view of the harbor with a summer snack bar and playground. It’s a good spot for picnicking, barbecuing, swimming, or playing on the retired cannons sitting in this fort from the Revolutionary War. Stroll the boulevard and see the bronze statue of the Gloucester Fisherman bearing an inscription from Psalm 107, “They That Go Down to the Sea in Ships, 1623-1923.” A few hundred feet west stands a memorial to the women and children who waited at home. Visit Hammond Castle (of Hammond organs) which sits in Magnolia, right on the edge of Gloucester harbor. Hammond had men gather pieces and parts of castles from around the world to create this imaginative structure. Party with the locals at St. Peter’s Fiesta, watch qualified residents trying to walk the greasy pole, or enjoy one of the downtown block parties.
There is always fun to be found in Gloucester. So much to do, so much to see, you’ll want to stay a little longer and what better way to stay than to own a Gloucester MA real estate property.
