"An intimate view of the harborfront, giving access to the town’s history — and the water itself — without disturbing the working port, or cutesifying it."
The HarborWalk’s self-guided, free, public-access and award winning walkway trail is defined by 42 granite story posts installed as a permanent exhibit outdoors. Each marker highlights an aspect of Gloucester’s history as a seaport, our rich culture and community, and how we are evolving to a modern, sustainable fishing industry.
A short drive or train ride northeast of Boston, Gloucester, MA is the home to America’s oldest seaport and the oldest working art colony in North America. Gloucester’s rugged and beautiful coastline has drawn fishermen, families, artists and visitors for over 300 hundred years. Visit DiscoverGloucester.com for what to see and do.
