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.

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).
