If you are ever near the Cape Ann of Massachusetts, jump over and see this gorgeous town and it... More

No shortage of art galleries, gift shops and restaurants. Park on main street and walk down Bearskin neck alongside Rockport Harbor to the jetty at the end.

If you like to wander through somewhat eccentric tourist-oriented shops, ignore me, and give it 5 stars. I've been here in the past, haven't seen it for many years, and it seemed to me kitschier than it used to be, a little run-down, and not too appealing. Maybe I'm just jaundiced It's not a bad place to kill some time,... More

This is a fun place to explore, shop and enjoy the touristy atmosphere. The art and small shops are colorful and an opportunity to find real treasures. Just getting up early an watching the sunrise is so worth it!

You can see the Fisherman's pier and Claude McCaul's(famous Arcitect's) housing. There are great places to eat and the shop prices are fair. You can find wonderful treasures in these... More
