Main Street is nice and has a good walking tour. You get a good feel for the town and area. I would recommend walking through the town hall for a glimpse of some wonderful murals.
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.
whilst in Gloucester you cant fail to take a walk along Main Street , some really nice shops selling local artists wares , glass , ceramics, paintings . we visited several times a small coffee shop that had 2 tables outside that seated 4 people in total ,had some nice coffee there . Nice places to eat also .
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!!!
Main Street in Gloucester is a great place to walk around with friends. I love all the cozy restaurants and stores right in the downtown area. They have a lot of fun events like the Bazaar and the Block Parties.
