Gloucester is a cozy town, it's a great place for retired or older people who are looking for somewhere quiet to settle down. There's great food and great people all across from the point to the courthouse.

I have lived in Gloucester for over a year now. It is a quite town with a few good restaurants. It is a good place to complete your Masters degree because there is not much to do. You must cross over the Coleman bridge for night life or other food. Overall, I enjoy the quiet, short 15-minute traffic jam in the evenings, and limited people. It also is rich in history, the views are spectacular, and all the people are very nice.
Gloucester Point is a waterside community that still manages to be diverse. You have the convenience of nearby grocery stores, hair salons, etc. all being a short drive away. The community strives to incorporate new, young families and provides public schools to do so.
