Main Street is full of restaurants, bars, and shops especially for visitors! Nothing special but there are really many places to sit down eat dring and just relax.

A good looking, functional downtown, well set up for locals and visitors. Lacks the goofy quaintness of many tourist areas. Loved the Dogtown Bookshop.

Gloucester is lucky because it has an actual downtown (not a mall!) that you can stroll around. Just go early because many of the wonderful shops close early.

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.
