Visiting Rockport

"Center of Attention" © 2015 David Arsenault. Canvas giclées available.

When it comes to beautiful places to visit, Rockport stands tall. Lighthouses, a quntessential and picturesque New England town featuring shops and galleries, restaurants, harbors, sandy and rocky beaches, and of course the sea. There are breathtaking views, play for adults as well as children, the invitation to a slower pace, and the the chance to enjoy moments of pure bliss. We love it and think you will too.
