Historic Rockport, Massachusetts is a beautiful fishing village full of wonderful food, shopping and activities! It’s the perfect day trip from Boston.
Enjoy a photo tour of Rockport!
Happy Independence Day! I love to travel to gorgeous locations and happy to be in Boston enjoying time with my husband’s side of the family.
We love New England and if you have never been here before, I thought you might enjoy these photos of my family vacation photos from a day trip from Boston I took with my sister-in-law.
We enjoyed a great day trip to Rockport, Mass. A quaint historic little fishing village with beautiful scenery and wonderful shops.
If you are ever in the New England area, I highly recommend walking around this beautiful town. You can park and walk around the entire town in just a few hours. But be sure to make time to shop!
Rockport is such a cute little town! I loved the huge lobster buoys everywhere.
You’ll also find fantastic seafood and shopping.
And also yummy strudel.
One of my favorite shops was James Russell Goldsmiths. They hand make the most wonderful jewelry. I enjoyed talking with the family and learning more about how they make their jewelry.
You can find gorgeous earrings and bracelets from $19 on up. A great place to call if you need gifts. Hopefully they will get online soon! I might have talked them into it:-)
There is a small beach if your kids want to make sand castles. You can also kayak and take boat tours. There is so much to do!
Everything in Rockport was picture perfect on the day we visited. What super day with family!
What are you doing this weekend? I hope you’re enjoying your holiday!
