A Guide to Rockport's Bearskin Neck
Historic Rockport, MA is known for its beautiful beaches and magical light, making it an inspirational destination for visitors and painters, dating back to Winslow Homer. At the tip of this quaint, coastal village lies Bearskin Neck magnificently jutting out into Rockport Harbor.
Bearskin Neck is a quarter-mile streetscape lined with an interesting collection of locally-owned shops, galleries, and restaurants. Its charm lies in its nod to the town’s history, and it has not been swayed by commercialism.
The shops here are so fun to visit and you will be greeted by friendly shop owners throughout this amazing community. Here are a few of our favorite spots:
