Two more reasons to visit Cape Ann (and stay at the Blue Shutters) this weekend -- one new event and one returning favorite. The new event is the Captains Courageous Festival, which will feature special activities throughout the city that celebrate Gloucester's maritime history. This same weekend marks the return of Trails & Sails to Cape Ann and surrounding communities. For the next two weekends, there will be a variety of guided tours, open house visits, hikes, walks, paddles, and other special experiences for all ages, skill levels and interests. All events are located within the 34 cities and towns of Essex County including the Cape Ann communities. No matter what activities you decide to try, the Blue Shutters is the perfect spot to rest up and plan your day...and enjoy some time here and on Good Harbor Beach.
