Rockport Travel Guide: 119 reviews and 304 photos

Scuba divers and tourists flock to Rockport to enjoy the sea. Rockport is at the farthest end of Cape Ann on the north shore of Massachusetts. Formerly just a quaint fishing village, the town is now a very affluent community that includes a great number of tourists in the summer months. Somehow the town manages to keep a laid-back atmosphere, probably because so many people there are on vacation. Unfortunately, the laid-back atmosphere does not extend to the police, who take great delight in ticketing and towing cars without resident parking stickers.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Great scuba diving, pretty ocean views, Tuck's Candy Shop!
  • Cons:Few places to park, traffic tie-ups in summer months.
  • In a nutshell:Great New England coastal town.

    I'm not a diver, but love Rockport. Glad you offered info I couldn't possibly know. I've just overhauled my page after spending a glorious 4 days up there.

    I haven't been to Rockport since I lived in Boston, it's worth a visit.

    Wow, I've read about Rockport but you've shown the town from a completely new angle, thanks!
