Day Trip from Boston


I am traveling to Boston for a week and would like to take a day trip from there to Rockport.

What are some interesting things to see/do and how walkable is it once getting there?

GO to a Bearskin Neck which is basically the downtown area. There's a really nice restaurant at the end of the pier which has great ocean views. It's called "my place by the sea." Try to make reservations there for a meal. The views are beautiful. About a few miles away from downtown, you can go see "halibut point state park." It is an old quarry that you can hike around and then climb giant rocks near the ocean. There are quite a few beaches as well that you can walk to from the downtown area.
