The Rockport Experience
When you need an affordable and enchanting getaway, come to Rockport. This small, peaceful seaside village, located on Massachusetts' other cape, Cape Ann, is embraced on three sides by the Atlantic Ocean.
It's about an hour away from busy, crowded Boston, yet feels like it's a world away. Book a quaint and cozy inn, settle in, take a relaxing walk, explore art galleries and one-of-a-kind shops, and eat fresh seafood. You will feel Rockport's special magic and serenity seep into and restore you.
Rockport is actually the end of the line, which will add to your feeling of escape and sanctuary. There are two ways to get here. One is a commuter-rail train out of Boston's North Station.
