Rockport, at the tip of Cape Ann, is famous for summer people, fishing, granite quarries and artists. It has rocky beaches and seaside parks. It's also a rather affluent suburb of Boston.

A red fishing shack on Bradley Wharf in Rockport, known  as  "Motif #1,'' has for years been one of the most famous sites on Cape Ann. It's the subject of innumerable paintings and photographs, and is visited by artists and tourists alike from all over the world.
