Rockport, MA

At the northern-most tip of Cape Ann sits the picturesque seaside village of Rockport.  With Bearskin Neck and its many shops, studios and restaurants jutting out from the town’s center into its charming harbor, Rockport today boasts a thriving artist community and some of the most widely painted sea and landscapes in the world, including Motif #1. The harbor remains home to an active fishing fleet, offering visitors a unique chance to observe artists at their craft or lobstermen hauling their traps. Along Rockport’s historic Main Street, from Dock Square to Beach Street, Rockport is a state-designated Cultural District (http://www.massvacation.com/explore/arts/cultural-districts/#rockport) filled with scores of enticing gift shops, galleries, restaurants, candy stores, clothing stores and boutiques, alongside extraordinary cultural venues. http://www.townofrockport.com/   |   http://www.rockportusa.com/   |   https://www.facebook.com/rockportculturaldistrict
