Rockport is a small seaside community located on the northernmost tip of Cape Ann along with the city of Gloucester.

When you visit Rockport you will want to stay forever just to soak in the unspoiled scenery and charm. Here you will find some of the most beautiful beaches and scenery in the country.

Visit Halibut Point State Park and in one area you will witness the most beautiful birds and wildlife as well as the huge quarry and the Atlantic ocean crashing against the rocky shore below. From Long Beach to Folly Cove you will find spectacular Ocean views including twin light on Thatcher Island.

Rockport has a number of beaches offering variety which include Long Beach, Cape Hedge Beach, Pebble Beach, and Front and Back Beach. The downtown and Bearskin Neck is filled with specialty gift and candy shops, art galleries, and some of the best restaurants in the state.

Motif #1 is located in Rockport and there is a house in Rockport made entirely of newspaper including all the furnishings and it is open for visiting, located at 52 Pidgeon Hill Street. The Paper House is a bit difficult to find, but definitely fascinating and worth the search.

The 2009 movie "The Proposal" starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds was filmed in Rockport and was called Sitka Alaska. You can see all the beautiful outdoor scenes from the movie (less the mountains that were added to the background n the movie) when you visit Bearskin Neck.

Old Sloop Fair Rummage Sale
The Old Sloop Fair begins with the Rummage Sale. There will be clothing for women, men, and children, shoes, and bed and table linens. The Old Sloop Fair is one of the oldest and largest church fairs on the Massachusetts North Shore. The First Congregational Church was organized in 1755. The building that is now the church sanctuary was constructed in 1804 and originally served as the town meetinghouse. The tall steeple and white facade close to the Sandy Bay shoreline resemble a ship's sail when seen from the sea, and the nickname "Old Sloop" was conferred by the fishermen. The steeple contains the Town Clock. Proceeds from this year's Fair will go toward the church's operating expenses and the restoration and preservation of the sanctuary building.
