The Annual Magazine of the Cape Ann Chamber

2016 Cape Ann Guideblue-line

The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce’s Cape Ann Guide is published annually and is one of the most requested publications by our tourists year-round. The Cape Ann Guide is the region’s go-to publication for accurate information on the area. The 60-page publication has a print run of 80,000 and is “perfect” bound.

The Cape Ann Chamber has split the Cape Ann Guide and the Membership Directory into two separate publications in order to maximize user-functionality and to balance the needs of our tourists. All members in good standing receive a free listing in the Business Directory that is mailed to every residence and business on Cape Ann.


Now in its fifth year of publication, the magazine in combination with the Cape Ann Visitor Map provides local businesses with powerful promotional tools. The magazine features the year’s schedule of events, great maps, train and bus schedules, a tide chart, outstanding articles, and first-rate photography. Gloucester, Rockport, Essex, and Manchester-by-the-Sea have special sections that discuss the attributes of each community along with strong photographic content.

Due to its local distribution, the Cape Ann Guide is a viable advertising vehicle for every Chamber member. In 2013, the magazine was distributed to thousands of area homes, area hotels and B&Bs, and visitor centers. It was available at Massachusetts AAA offices, airports, high traffic businesses as well as other visitor centers and chambers of commerce around New England. We provided area hotels with copies for each check-in.

In addition, the magazine is featured on the home page of both high traffic Cape Ann Chamber visitor sites: and The magazine is interactive allowing over 400,000 unique visitors the ability to flip through the magazine and open an advertiser’s website from all over the world. It’s a powerful combination of print and web media – buy an ad and get two powerful links for free.
