I have been to tons of coastal cities, but Rockport on Cape Ann in Massachusetts is one of the most charming seaside town I have ever visited. The rugged cliffs, sandy beach and picturesque landscapes, made it the perfect peaceful getaway that I was craving. Now, lets talk about the colorful buildings! Never ever have I encountered so many brightly colored structures. Everywhere I turned, there was a splash of vibrant hue to welcome me. I couldn't get enough of this town, and I definitely would visit again someday. Check out my seaside adventure below.
At the top of my itinerary was Motif Number 1. I had read that this fishing shack located on Bradley Wharf) is "the most painted building in America", and of course I had to stop by to see for myself.
How picturesque is this?
While it may look like an ordinary fishing shack, this little red shack is the most painted building in the world and people flock in year round to see it and it has become an icon of this New England town.
I did a brief stint at Front Beach and just took in the cool breeze and people watched.
Off I went to
Bear Skin Neck by the ocean is the main street in Rockport. It boasts of so many antique stores, quaint structures, gift shops, and a myriad of ice cream store. Yes, Ice cream! I visited in April so the nice cool ocean breeze was definitely a nice feel as I popped in and out of the shops

Definitely no shortage of color in this town. Did you guys enjoy seeing Rockport through my eyes? Please leave me a comment and let me know.
