Things to do

Rockport’s world-class art and cultural experience

Home to the oldest art colony in the country, Rockport’s charm is in its artistic culture.

Learn the history and see notable architecture such as Motif No. 1, an old boating house once used by the fisheries. Known as the most painted building in America, you must get a picture in front of it, or no one will believe you were here.

Weather

Brisk climate makes Rockport your off-season getaway

Rockport’s season runs from the end of May through to the end of the year. This quaint suburban town blossoms when the temperatures are warmest, rarely reaching above 80 degrees. Expect to find everything that Rockport offers during these months. However, if you’re looking for a quiet place to rest and rejuvenate, a Rockport vacation rental during the winter months provides you with a peaceful sanctuary to enjoy the art and water. Cozy up with some cocoa near a warm fire, and be sure to call ahead for activities during the winter months.
