Cape Ann

Trip Planner USA  /  Massachusetts  /  Cape Ann
Cape Ann is a collection of coastal towns interspersed with rocky coastline. The towns represent some of the earliest settlements along the East Coast. Captain John Smith was the first to chart the area in the 17th century. Travelers come to visit tide pools and more than a dozen beaches and take part in water activities like whale watching, sailing, and fishing. The community supports the arts, designating four regional cultural districts that showcase everything from art galleries and studios to museums, music, and performing art venues. East of the Annisquam River is referred to as "The Island" where "old families" exhibit a fiercely independent culture that is true to the cape's early roots. Cape Ann is in Massachusetts (MA).
