“Famous Photo Op - Don't Miss It”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

If you're in scenic downtown Rockport, you can't miss Motif Number 1. It makes for some beautiful photographs, but there's really not much to it. I'd seen this on calendars and puzzles and such, as it is a famous photo location. There's nothing to do there except just look at it, so don't plan a day around it. Just add it to your time in Rockport, which is a GREAT place to visit.

“Great views”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

We come back every year. We love walking the streets and seeing the views. A great little town and spot to watch the water.

“Caught a lobster here!”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We originally had no idea we were at 'motif # 1'. The jetty just seemed to ideal place to put in a line and do a bit of fishing. We caught a large Striper first and lo and behold a large lobster soon after that. It hung on for dear life even though it ought to have done a jump while it could... Happy memories and a delicious meal for the people we gave it to as a present. As far as Motif # 1 - I can see it now and it is iconic.

“One of my favorite places to visit”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Definitely do not miss this on your visit to Rockport. Such a beautiful building. Perfect place to take pictures or sit with a cup of coffee and watch the fishing boats in the morning.

“Motif Number 1”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

A truly iconic New England site! I enjoy strolling through town and then walking down the wharf to sit and enjoy the view. It is interesting to see the lobster men in the early morning hours as they head out to their pots and then later when they return with their catch.
