Rockport, Mass Travel Guide
Escape to historic Rockport, Massachusetts.

For over 160 years, people have traveled to Rockport for our miles of lovely beaches, boulder-strewn paths through woods and glades, and that uncommonly magical light that has inspired painters since Winslow Homer.

In an hour's pleasant drive north of Boston, you can enjoy a romantic getaway, exquisite dining and a unique shopping experience—all in a single day.

The Rockport Division of the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce invites you to use our online travel guide to find a vacation package that will give you a break from the bustle of city life. Come visit our seaside village just 40 miles north of Boston (see map).
