About the neighbourhood
The prettiest stretch of coastline in all of Massachusetts, Cape Ann offers you big-city culture mixed with small-town charm and exciting recreational activities. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or a family vacation, you’ll find it here. Who wouldn’t want to come here? Cape Ann is one of the last great unspoiled places. Founded by Pilgrims in 1623, named for England’s Queen Anne, the cape sprouted villages along its coast, leaving its whole center a wild wood. Every curve of its rugged coastline shows off a new scenic beauty: harbors, lighthouses, islands, miles of sandy beaches, quarries, inlets and coves, all so picturesque that moviemakers film here constantly. Yet we’re only 30 miles from Boston’s Logan Airport.
Getting around
Best way to see the sights is by car... everything is pretty close around here. Train to Boston 1 mi. (1 hour ride). There is the local CATA bus that travels around Cape Ann (Gloucester and Rockport) as well as a water taxi that goes back and forth across the harbor, from downtown to Rocky Neck.
