If you’re feeling adventurous and want something that’s a bit off the beaten path, consider taking a trip to Rockport. Located just under an hour drive outside of Boston at the tip of the Cape Ann peninsula, this little gem of a town is a perfect way to get to know the nautical Massachusetts that is often overlooked by visitors.
Rockport has many delightful attractions to offer. Take a stroll down the coastline and take in the breathtaking views before stopping for lunch.For great sandwiches and delicious coffee, make sure to stop by Brothers’ Brew Coffee Shop.
Afterwards, make sure to walk through the main street and check out the local shops that include local art galleries, jewelry shops, and specialty gift shops.
Don’t forget to sample fresh seafood while you’re here! Dinner at local restaurant Blue Lobster Grille will surely not disappoint. Dine on fish and chips and bask in the glorious view.
