Seaside in Rockport

no images were found

We’ve visited Boston many times but on a recent trip there were looking for a short sidetrip on the coast. We found the most perfect setting in Rockport, at the top of Cape Ann just an hour from the city. Rockport is a small fishing town set on a bay formed by Bearskin Neck which juts out into the harbor. The centerpiece of Rockport is Motif #1, a wonderful old fishing shack set on a dock in the quiet harbor. With its brightly colored fishing buoys adorning its walls, Motif #1 is one of the most recognizable New England coastal scenes.
