I obviously heard of this town a while ago from the movie The Perfect Storm. I have always wanted to come here and glad I did. I can’t wait to come out in the summer when the town comes to life I’m sure!

This is a really nice tribute to those who have lost their lives at sea. The engraved names and years is really heart wrenching when you stop and think about it and what it must have been like for them and their families. It's a...More

This is not an activity, but simply an iconic and beautiful statue and memorial to honor those who "went down to the sea in ships." There is also a circular memorial wall with the vessel name, names of captaind and crew with the dates. Such...More

More than fish sticks and other stereotypical statements. The statue is the best landmark in town. Perhaps it’s most photographed. Fun town to explore.

Yep, a must-do in this town!. It's location at the edge of the sea is a fitting place to be reminded of the many men who have lost their lives to it. Quite sobering and definitely worth the stop. Just be sure to take the...More

Along the side of the street. As you enter Glouster center, there is a parking lot but it is usually full, but along the street is parking with meters.
