A five to ten minute walk to Front Beach, village galleries, shops, and restaurants, and a short walk to Bearskin Neck and the harbor—with views of iconic Motif #1. Swim, explore tidal pools, picnic, shop for treasures, enjoy stunning nautical scenery, and dine on lobster and other local seafood fresh from the boat. On weekend summer evenings, walk a short distance to bandstand concerts at Back Beach and enjoy ice cream from local shops.And just a short walk down the street, Rockport’s glorious new Shalin Liu Center offers a wide array of musical performance, from chamber music to jazz and R&B.
No matter the time of year, Rockport and Cape Ann are magical. Springtime is a gentle season when the flowers bloom and the village shops open—a perfect time to enjoy art galleries and boutiques before the summer bustle. Summertime offers swimming, picnicking, hiking, boating, and golfing—all in spectacular settings. And you can’t beat fall in a New England seaside village, combining striking foliage with nautical views—a good time for hiking, golfing, shopping for bargains, and enjoying local dining.
