The fisherman's memorial is a timeless landmark. There is a beautiful water view and plenty of parking. The memorial is right at the beginning of Main Street. It is the beginning of your trip into Gloucester. Sit on a bench and enjoy the view.

A very moving memorial for the fisherman and as well for the wives and family. Gorgeous walk along the ocean with patriotic feel lined with American Flags. And of course amoung those that perished at sea you can find the names of those depicted in the movie Perfect Storm.

So many fishermen go to sea every day to put fish on our tables. It is hard work and not all fishermen make it home from storms. This memorial overlooks the harbor and is quite accessible.

This monument honors the many men who died at sea. There are plaques of the men all around and often you will see people reading the names and remembering their family members. Its easy to get to - just off the main road next to the water.

This is a very famous landmark and well worth seeing. There is no charge, as it is outside on the harbor. The memorial plaque gives names and numbers of those who lost their lives while fishing off Gloucester. Very very moving!

Stop by and learn about all the past sailor that have perished. Learn the history of this great town and walk the plaza to take in the size of the bay.

Although it was getting dark this is a nice walk - several people were dog walking. The other side of the street were houses. Very quiet but very nice

Cool statue with cool history. Passes this on a walk looked at it for a bit would like to spend more time there looked like there were some plaques with information but didn't really get a good look at it. It was pretty crowded when we went by
