Mini Travel Guide to Rockport, MA 🦞🌊⚓️

This quaint, coastal town is a must-visit on the north shore of Boston. I’m pretty much obsessed with all towns on the north shore and there’s a reason for that. They encompass the charm and quintessential vibe of New England in all seasons.

Things to Do:

🚶🏻‍♀️Walk the downtown area
🖼 Check out the art galleries
🐋 Go whale watching
🔴 Check our Motif #1 (pictured here)
🌊 Visit Front Beach
🥾 Hike at Halibut Point
🛶 Go Kayaking

Where to Eat:

🍩 Brother’s Brew Coffee Shop for donuts & iced coffee @brothersbrewcoffeeshop
🦞 Roy Moore Lobster Co. for boiled lobsters (opens in May) @roymoorelobster
🐟 Roy Moore’s Fish Shack Restaurant & bar for lobster rolls and other seafood (bar is also open later than most places in town)
🍸 Feather & Wedge for appetizers and cocktails @featherandwedge
🍽 My Place by The Sea for upscale dining and waterfront views @myplacebythesea
🍦The Ice Cream Store for dessert!

Where to stay:

🏨 Addison Choate @addisonchoate – A B&B boutique hotel offer a coastal eclectic setting with thoughtful amenities including private marble baths, plush towels, bathrobes and more for a taste of coastal luxury.

🏨 Sally Webster Inn @sallywebstercollection – A B&B boutique hotel offering a modern, stylish take on and antique 1832 colonial New England home with self check-in and an intimate setting.

Also fun fact; this is where they shot the movie The Proposal with Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds! Makes sense, because Alaska is another favorite destination of mine. Many similarities ✨
