Cape Ann SpringLife – A Time to Refresh, Explore and Enjoy
Spring is a special time on Cape Ann, bridging the quiet beauty of our snowy winters with our many summertime activities.
In the spring, you can still enjoy cool, quiet days and nights, but as the season plays out, you’ll find the beaches, marshes, waterfront areas, parks, and walking trails inviting you to slip off that overcoat and enjoy the warm breezes. You’ll find the shops, art galleries and restaurants welcoming you, and our many attractions – museums, whale watches, cruises and other experiences in town and on the water – getting ready for springtime visitors.
And all around Cape Ann, there more events and activities on the calendar. Art Week (April 26 to May 5) spotlights our region’s unrivaled cultural community, and Rockport’s Motif #1 Day (May 16) honors one of our nation’s cultural icons. You can come join with the town of Essex as they begin their bicentennial celebration, tour Gloucester’s Rocky Neck and the city’s historic waterfront, and take in the picturesque harbor and quaint shops in Manchester-by-the-sea.
There are those who come to Cape Ann for a special occasion — to enjoy spring break with the kids; to celebrate Easter, Mother’s Day, the Memorial Day weekend or another of the season’s holidays here; or for an anniversary, a birthday or a wedding.
No matter what you’re looking for – a time to refresh, explore or enjoy – you’ll find it on Cape Ann.
Come experience Cape Ann SpringLife and see for yourself.
