Goings On Around Gloucester
It has been another great week for beachlovers -- with temps into the 90s, guests here at the Blue Shutters have been spending many hours enjoying the cool breezes and refreshing waves of Good Harbor Beach. But folks have been doing up the town as well. The annual sidewalk bazaar continues on through the weekend, drawing visitors to downtown Gloucester. And there they'll find some of the Greater Boston area's finest restaurants. There's the new Captain Vito's, located in the Gloucester Cruiseport, which opened earlier this year (we stopped by last weekend and enjoyed some of the finest fried shrimp we've ever tasted). Old favorite Alchemy continues to impress our guests (you have to try the Uptown Mac & Cheese), and for late night entertainment, folks have given a thumbs up to the Mad Fish, The Rudder and The Studio on Rocky Neck and Captain Carlo's downtown. For those looking for daytime fun away from the beach, we've heard the whale watch cruises are great for kids and adults. We've been gathering information on all of the happenings around Gloucester -- or you can check the Cape Ann visitors website.
