Explore gorgeous private gardens along Gloucester’s stunning Back Shore.
Traveling along the Back Shore is to experience the grandeur of the Atlantic Ocean in its full glory. The magnificent vistas include Good Harbor Beach, the twin lighthouses on Thacher Island, and the waves crashing along miles of rocky shore. When French explorer Samuel de Champlain visited the area in 1606 he named it Le Beau Port meaning the beautiful harbor, and on this tour, you will easily understand why.
This year’s Generous Gardeners’ Garden Tour will provide the opportunity to see hidden backyard gardens behind many of the impressive facades on Atlantic Road and neighboring roads. One iconic property on Sherman Point is 3.5 acres of manicured lawn and gardens that served as a small golf course for the original owner.
This is a self-guided walking tour of 3 miles roundtrip from Stop & Shop.
