Maritime Harvest:
A Seafood Diners Delight

The maritime heritage of Essex County is renowned. From Gloucester, the oldest working seaport in the Country to Lowell's Boat Shop in Amesbury which is the Country's oldest continuously operated boat shop. You will find lighthouses, fishermen unloading their catch, bustling ports, many opportunities to paddle, fish, sail and be on the water, 18th century captain's homes, museums that chronicle the maritime trade and hands on exhibits explaining the fishing industry. While exploring the region we believe the best way to capture the maritime spirit of the region is to partake in the harvest! From boiled red lobster and farm fresh corn to a plate of fried clams we have the quintessential New England experience ready for you to enjoy.
