"Essex is one of four quaint and friendly coastal communities that are collectively known as Cape Ann. Established in 1819, the Town of Essex still maintains much of its small town spirit. The Essex Shipbuilding Museum, in the center of town is an nationally respected museum of this important national heritage. Essex is well endowed with antique shops and restaurants, whose menus feature the Essex clam, which is a widely recognized symbol of pride and quality."
"Gloucester is a scenic gem, the oldest fishing port on the East Coast of the United States, and boasts one of the finest natural harbors in Massachusetts. Gloucester remains an important fishing port, its working harbor home to a colorful fleet. [Eds. Note: Watch out for a repeat of the Perfect Storm.] Gloucester’s natural beauty and historical character have attracted a sizeable resident artist population. In summertime, visitors are attracted to its beaches, fresh seafood, and the lure of whale watching. "
"Rockport is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on three sides with the City of Gloucester on the fourth. The number and variety of hotels, motels, inns and restaurants delight visitors. Other attractions include the sandy and rocky beaches, the Paper House, the Old Castle, the Historical Society Museum and the Babson Museum. The Rockport Art Association is very active and there are a number of fine artists’ studios and galleries about town. Bearskin Neck draws thousands of visitors to the many and varied shops."
"John Hays Hammond, Jr. built his medieval-style castle between the years 1926 and 1929 to serve both as his home and as a backdrop for his collection of Roman, medieval, and Renaissance artifacts. The castle was constructed as a wedding present for his wife Irene Fenton Hammond to prove how much he cared for her. In addition, the building housed the Hammond Research Corporation, from which Dr. Hammond produced over 400 patents and the ideas for over 800 inventions. Second only to Thomas Alva Edison in number of patents, John Hammond was one of America's premier inventors. His most important work was the development of remote control via radio waves, which earned him the title, 'The Father of Remote Control.'"
"Named from a bear caught in the tide and killed in 1700."
"Commercial and shipbuilding center of Rockport for 150 years."
"The Crow's Nest windows face east into the coming day over a street used at dawn by reefer trucks . . . . The plate-glass window in front is said to be the biggest barroom window in town. That's quite a distinction in a town where barroom windows are made small so that patrons don't get thrown through them . . . . There's an old pool table, a pay phone by the door, and a horseshoe-shaped bar. Budweiser costs a dollar seventy-five but as often as not there's a fisherman just in from a trip who's buying for the whole house. Money flows through a fisherman like water through a fishing net; one regular ran up a $4000 tab in a week . . . "
-- Sebastian Junger, The Perfect Storm

"Cape Ann Whale Watch in Gloucester, Massachusetts provides guaranteed whale sightings for every whale watching tour out to Stellwagen Bank, a national marine preserve about 12 miles off the coast of Gloucester deemed one of the 'Top 5 Whale Watching Destinations in the World' by the World Wildlife Fund due to the wide variety of whale species whom migrate to the coast of Gloucester, Massachusetts every year to feed on the abundant natural resources."
"Chicago industrialist Richard T. Crane, Jr. first purchased the 2,100 acres that would become The Crane Estate in 1910. Crane was captivated by the beautiful landscape, and over time worked with eight leading architects and landscape architects to shape his summer retreat. In 1928, he crowned the estate with a grand 59-room, Stuart-style mansion, designed by the world-renowned architect David Adler."
"Wolf Hollow is a non-profit organization established in 1990 to teach people about the importance of the wolf in the wild. Wolf Hollow offers a unique opportunity to view gray wolves in as natural a setting as possible. Come see how they interact with their pack members and live in a social unit very similar to human families."
"Mystery Train began over 30 years ago in Harvard Square, Cambridge selling only used vinyl (CDs did not exist). From it’s beginning inside Oona’s used clothing shop, the shop expanded over the years to five stores, then settled back to one large (most vinyl in New England) store in Gloucester, MA. Mystery Train’s mission is to continue providing interesting vinyl for current and future generations of record fiends."
