Since then, Rockport has become a popular destination for vacationers looking to fish, relax on the local beaches, and enjoy area attractions like the many art galleries that dot the downtown area. In fact, Rockport was named as one of The 100 Best Small Art Towns of America by Americans for the Arts.
