If you are looking for something fun to do this summer why not head to Rockport, MA! It’s about a 45 min drive North of Boston and would be the perfect weekend get-away – whether it be a romantic weekend for two, or a whole family affair. I was recently in Rockport for computer training session and although it was still about a month away from the summer season it was clear why this is a perfect summer destination. If you are looking for great beaches, amazing seafood and quint galleries & curiosity shops than this is the place for you! It’s quintessential New England charm is sure to be a big hit!
While you are there don’t miss Motif #1 – the red fishing shack that has iconic status and has come to symbolize Rockport. I just loved all the bright colors and textures!
Bearskin Neck is art colony filled with wonderful stores! Most were still closed since it was not quite summer but I did stumble upon the Wicked Peacock where I found some fun, trendy jewelry that I could’t resist! Definitely make a stop here – I guarantee you won’t be able to leave without something special!
I had a blast window shopping … all the fun trinkets and art! How much is that doggie in the window??
Just loved the brightly colored doors! So fun!
Rockport is a great summer destination – it’s beauty and charm has even entice movie makers. I learned that The Proposal with Sandra Bullock was filmed here as well as, The Love Letter and Mermaids to name a few!
If you find you want to do even more exploring while you are there then head to nearby Gloucester; who can forget this town put on the map by Mark Wahlberg & George Clooney in Perfect Storm!
Rockport is sure to delight! Take a trip this summer! You won’t be disappointed!
