Cape Ann Winterlife

Cape Ann WinterLife – Enjoy Our Communities in a Whole New Way

In the winter, one can enjoy much of what Cape Ann offers throughout the year, but with that unique backdrop that only this season offers. Snowy winter scenes, warming fireplaces, and a restful calm that invites you to discover in a new way all that we love about Cape Ann – from the unique antique shops of Essex to the beauty of Gloucester’s Good Harbor and Wingaersheek Beaches; and from Manchester-by-the-Sea’s picturesque harbor to the art studios and galleries of Rockport. This is Cape Ann WinterLife.

Your day may begin with a morning walk along a snow-covered beach or a visit to the harbor to watch the winter wildlife, continue with a pleasant afternoon in one of our museums or a stroll through our shops and art galleries, and end with a relaxed night of dinner or drinks in that favorite spot that is bustling in the summertime.

Cape Ann Winter

Cape Ann is the ideal choice for those looking for a post-holiday escape, a place to bring the kids during the winter school vacation weeks, or a natural cure for “cabin fever” that can settle in later in the season. This is also a quick and easy way to get away during any of the winter holidays – for a romantic Valentine’s Day evening, a weekend break for President’s Day, or a night out on St. Patrick’s Day. And while you’re here, you can plan your return – for a spring wedding, a summer vacation, or a fall arts week.

Explore this website for a schedule of wintertime events and activities and details on the accommodations, restaurants, shops and attractions open throughout the season.

Whatever interests you – shopping or dining, culture or nature, outdoor activities or down time, you will find what you need here in the winter.

All this much more awaits you in the winter months. Come experience Cape Ann WinterLife.
