Visit Cape Ann
Relax and enjoy. Family vacations, romantic getaways, ocean adventures, and fresh seafood. Representing the communities of Gloucester, Rockport, Essex and
Manchester-by-the-Sea, the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce officially invites you to visit and linger along this beautiful stretch of Massachusetts coastline, the central portion of the Essex Coastal Scenic Byway. We are easy to reach, just 30 miles north of Boston, MA on Route 128.
The town delights all with a wonderful array of antique and specialty shops, as well as restaurants that feature local, award winning seafood and is home to the fried clam.
Unique retail shops, great restaurants and enticing galleries, jewelry stores and boutiques fill this town of just over 5,000 residents.
Drawn to Gloucester’s rich history and natural beauty, visitors will delight in pristine beaches, fresh seafood and such water based activities as stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, canoeing, snorkeling, fishing and the ever remarkable whale watching excursion.
Visit Rockport for our miles of lovely beaches, boulder-strewn paths through woods and glades, and that uncommonly magical light that has inspired painters since Winslow Homer.
