Gloucester (aka America’s Oldest Seaport) is a picturesque Cape Ann coastal town located in Essex County, Massachusetts. It is a community with a strong fishing and shipbuilding heritage dating back three centuries; it is worth mentioning that the first schooner was built here in 1713. Gloucester generously offers to its visitors relaxing moments by the sea, mouthwatering local cuisine, and amazingly beautiful natural coastal setting, so beautiful that the town and its surrounding areas were used for the shooting of 15 movies. A few of the top Gloucester attractions include the schooner Adventure, Annisquam, Cape Ann Museum, the Man at the Wheel statue, Sargent House Museum, Ravenswood Park, Norman’s Woe (famous for many shipwrecks, including The Wreck of the Hesperus), etc. Regarding budget accommodation, Castle Manor Inn is probably the finest discount hotel in Gloucester offering fantastic low-cost accommodation experience for under $90 per room per night.
