Fodor’s names Gloucester one of New England’s Most Picturesque Towns
Check out last Friday’s Fodor’s article listing Gloucester in their 15 of New England’s Most Picturesque Towns. Here’s what they say about Gloucester
About an hour north of Boston on Cape Ann, Gloucester is the country’s oldest seaport and predates Boston and Salem. It was established as an English settlement in 1623, and today you can visit historic houses like the Cape Ann Historical Association. Gloucester’s scenic beauty has attracted many artists, including Winslow Homer, William Morris Hunt, Mark Rothko, Maurice Prendergast, and Edward Hopper. The Rocky Neck Art Colony—the first settled artist colony in the U.S.—has many contemporary artist studios and galleries.
