My cousin lives here, so she took me and my friend on a tour. I loved the old houses and architecture of the buildings. We went into a lot of antique shops, gift shops, boutiques and book stores. I would like to go again.

Find a parking space or one of the metered lots, and stroll. Fascinating collection of stores, services, restaurants, and some remarkable architecture, as well as a large number of galleries and artisan studios.

Plenty to do in Gloucester, great little town. Docks are worth a visit also the Cathedral, pity they are doing work on it, but you can still go in and have a look.

Cute little town with some very pricey shops and some good food places. But it's not really anything to rush to get too. Kids would be bored. But Gloucester has a lot to offer and you should walk Main St; if you are in the...More

We had a nice afternoon walking down the street and shopping. Ate at Sweet Magnolias - delicious lunch. Stopped by Virgilio's Italian Bakery for some desert afterwards - again it was also delicious. Shops had some interesting wares to browse through. Nice place, nice afternoon....More
