Gloucester, Massachusetts: Big Lobster Trap

The seafaring town of Gloucester entertains tourists with a large lobster trap. At least we hope it's entertainment, and not a real trap for terrifying monster lobsters.
27 Harbor Loop, Gloucester, MA
Take Rogers St. to Harbor Loop. The big trap sits on the dock behind the Dive Locker and its diving equipment mini-museum, which is also a worthy attraction.
