Gloucester HarborWalk
Enjoy Gloucester's Harbor Walk on 3 free walking tours! (1) SELF GUIDED WALKING TOUR features 42 story posts, innovative public spaces, gardens and art. The story posts are a permanent outdoor exhibit throughout downtown highlighting the city's past and contemporary cultural treasures. QR codes scan to more links and fun activities. Visit just one stop or "hop-on, hop off”. (2) MOBILE GUIDED MINI TOUR: "Walking Cinema", an American Alliance of Museums gold Muse winner, is a quick tour narrated by Gloucester singer Ann Marie. There are fun selfie stops. (3) BECOME A “GLOUCESTER EXPLORER": children who collect tracings for all 42 story post icons can receive a certificate signed by the Mayor and are eligible to participate in a prize drawing at the end of the summer. Bonus: the outdoor Fishermen's Wharf exhibit near Latitude 43 is part of the HarborWalk.
