Eastern Point Wildlife Sanctuary
What Eastern Point lacks in space it more than makes up for in views and wildlife. Located on a peninsula near the historic Eastern Point Lighthouse, the small sanctuary is a hot spot for butterflies and seabirds at particular times of the year. Look no further than the parking lot for unsurpassed coastal seascape.
Location Eastern Point Boulevard (private way), Gloucester, MA
Hours: Trails open every day, dawn to dusk; parking lot open daily, 8 am-8 pm
