Gloucester is a port city located on Cape Ann in Essex County, Massachusetts USA. The city covers a total area of approx 108 km2 (42 ml2) and has population around 30,000.Gloucester (Massachusetts) cruise port

  • Gloucester is part of North Shore, Massachusetts. A major center of fishing industry and popular summer tourist travel destination, the city consists of urban core (on the harbor's north side) and 8 surrounding neighborhoods (Bay View, Annisquam, East Gloucester, West Gloucester, Folly Cove, Lanesville, Magnolia, Riverdale).
  • The harbor was once a major shipbuilding center. The first schooner was allegedly built here in 1713. The settlement developed into a fishing port, largely because of the proximity to Georges Bank (and other fishing banks) off the east coast of Newfoundland and Nova Scotia. 
  • Among the city's most noted landmarks is the harborside statue themed "Man at the Wheel" (aka "Gloucester Fisherman's Memorial Cenotaph").
  • The largest annual event here is Saint Peter's Fiesta held during June's last weekend. The carnival is preceded by a 9-day devotional praying.
