Travel Tips for Rockport

Drive the loop ~ Visit the Quarry

by Pawtuxet

If you leave the town of Rockport you can find a little road to wander and drive the north loop past the granite quarry, a state park, a wonderful fish restaurant by a tiny cove with outdoor tables, winding roads filled with interesting looking houses, and maybe a perfect view.
Halibut Point has a state park, parking, trails to walk, and a visitors center surrounding the old Quarry. The Babson Farm Quarry stopped its operations in 1929, but the locals have managed to protect the property and improve the visitors center, making it a terrific spot to picnic, walk, photograph, or bring your dog. (leashed, of course)

The Inhabitants of Flat Rock

by Pawtuxet

What a fantastic place for seagulls to live. What could be better than all the tidbits left by fishermen and the lobster boats coming after their traps? Occasional boaters probably lose a bit of lunch as well. All designed for these wonderful gulls of Rockport's seashore. Sometimes they look as if they have something to say about the kayaks and boats that pass by. They fly when you approach, but I don't think they are very worried about the silly humans who visit their warm and welcoming home.

More of Bearskin Neck

by Pawtuxet

There are always one or two shops that have disappeared since my last trip and new ones appear to top my list of favorite stops. This year's find was "Gooseberry Junction" tucked off to the side on a little side lane which was chock full of interesting garden ornaments and holiday ideas. I found an anniversary gift as well as an old fashioned felt pumpkin with a zipper for a mouth. Well, I guess you had to be there to appreciate it. Shopkeeper had a great old Labrador retreiver who greeted every customer and loved to be scratched.

Coming Soon ******

by Pawtuxet

Surprisingly Rockport has made the decision to take down a large building in the middle of their main street. It had been a clothing store I really liked. I was so disappointed to hear the owner died and the building was sold to the town. The good news is that the building is to be re-built as it was...but more structurally sound than it now is. The new use will be a cultural center for the town. Signs in the windows suggest you challenge your imagination.
