Cute craft and artist shops dotted with ice cream shops, coffee shop and small restaurants. Perfect to get pictures of the dock, pier or port with boats when the sun comes up or goes down. My favorite shop was the Pewter Store.

Really excellent people watching and novelty shopping. Very cute little area with shops and restaurants along the way. Great views to Motif #1 and the waterfront.

This is a huge tourist draw with the famous picturesque waterfront, the restaurants, shops etc.... from coffee shores, to fine restaurants, to fresh seafood markets to farmers market in Saturday, it's a lively time. Front. Each is right in town too

Bearskin Neck is the perfect place to browse wonderful small shops, the typical tourist shops, small restaurants and, of course, the beautiful ocean views at the top of the neck. Sunrises and sunsets are both visible from this scenic spot.

On a pleasant day, it is a great way to spend a day strolling around the shops and restaurants. Several good food options and the views of the harbor are wonderful.

The sights, shops, and restaurants in this area were wonderful! The beach was clean, the water wonderful and the people watching even better.

The Proposal was filmed here. It is so beautiful you must see it in person. It was my second visit and if we are ever there again I will definitely spend the night again.

Many trinket shops. Many candy shops. Many ice cream shops. Cool place but very much filled with sightseers. Good photos can be had there.

Not all will be open, so call ahead or contact the Chamber of Commerce. Some shop owners have seasonal shops down south.

Yes you can take the train from North Station Boston to Rockport. Then walk around the Rockport waterfront. Not far from station
