    At the tip of Cape Ann, in the quaint coastal village of Rockport, Massachusetts you will find one of the most scenic stretches in all of Massachusetts, Bearskin Neck. Located in the heart of the town, Bearskin Neck proudly juts out of Dock Square into Rockport Harbor.

    Bearskin Neck differs from other vacation and tourist destinations in that it maintains a sense of integrity and authenticity that is rooted in its humble, hardworking history. You’re not going to find any Polo Outlets or Red Lobsters on this quarter mile stretch.
