We walked to the beach at Good Harbor and enjoyed crossing the sandbar at low tide to Salt Island. Two grocery stores, liquor store were very close. Gloucester had a small Maritme Museum perfect for little kids hands on tide pool exhibit, interesting shipping display and great little dive shack which was the adults' favorite. Despite a bit of unusual rain, there was plenty to entertain us nearby. Bear Skin Neck shopping in Rockport was exceptional. Would love to make this an annual trip!
