Located on Cape Ann, Rockport is a quintessential seacoast town, home to many lobstermen due to Pigeon Cove Harbors still-working fleet. Historically this town was a small fishing village and is now a popular vacation destination. Tourists and residents are often found enjoying The Neck with boat tours or whale watches. It is known for Bearskin Neck’s Motif #1 which happens to be the most painted and photographed scene in America. Bearskin Neck is one of 3 main areas of Rockport, there is also the South End, and Downtown. The South End is primarily residential while Downtown includes Dock Square and Main Street. Rockport has a population of 6,900 residents who live in a combination of waterfront homes and historic homes. For an active adult lifestyle beyond water sports and sailing, Rockport is also just 43 miles from Boston.
