Hi Norma, Gloucester is north of Boston on the coast of Massachusetts, in New England. If you know of "The Perfect Storm"- this is where the film was made. Springfield is about 125 miles or 2 hours 20 minutes west, inland from Gloucester. You can easily come for a daytrip to Gloucester from Springfield. I would suggest staying longer of course:) You could go on a whale watch- in your life you must see a whale! Just amazing! You could spend the day at one of our beautiful beaches; or go kayaking or biking or hiking. We have wonderful maritime museums, mansion tours and even a real castle to explore! You'll get hungry, so plan to have a seafood dinner of locally caught lobster, clams, scallops, shrimp or fish- yum! If you're into art, you'll enjoy strolling through the many galleries on Rocky Neck, the home of the oldest working art colony in the US.
I do not do individual tours, but you could rent a car and do a self drive as we are easy to get to, and because we are an island you can't get lost- really!
Whatever you choose to do- you'll have a wonderful vacation here in Gloucester!
We are located in Truckee, California.
