The st is so busy it's a wonder that there aren't accidents left and right you really have to pay attention.

We headed down to Main Street around 4:30 PM and found that over half of the stores were closed. We were surprised to find it that way - it is a tourist area in the summer.

Main Street Gloucester is a quaint and nicely kept little town with nice restaurants and shops. This was a town I would truly recommend stopping and spending the night, go to a nice restaurant and spend the night at the Manor Inn Bed and Breakfast. Be sure to go on a whale watch excursion.

So many places to go on Main Street, shops and eateries. So nice to shop where there are no BIG BOX stores and many franchise restaurants. The town is so full of wonderful and friendly locals!!!

Take your camera with you, it is definitely worth to take some photos back home. This little town has its charm.
