We always enjoy strolling around Bearskin Neck. We ate at Ellen's Dockside, got ice cream, and explored the shops. Another day, we got pizza to go from Atlantic Pizza.

Love how each store is like a ma and pa store no big name brand stores the veiw off to the ocean is so peaceful and great for kids and people with dogs.
Many places to shop and eat.
Beaches are perfect and water so clean.
Would recommend this for everyone.

1st you're struck by motif #1 the barn red lobster shack covered with bouys. Then there are any number of shops and restaurants to visit. Rockport is a great town as is Gloucester. Be sure to walk all the way out to Bearskin Neck and take in the great views.

Shops and artist gallerys abound. Grab an ice cream or lunch at one of the many palces (beware of some overpriced locaitons that charge you for the view - insead grab something to go and go sit on the rocks at the end of the neck and watch the sailboats on the ocean).

Parking is always a challenge in Rockport - don't park in the resident-only designated lots or you will get towed. there's a shuttle bus from just outside town, or cruise around the small streets until you find a legal spot, then walk back to the Neck.
