We highly recommend walking and hiking around Beauchamp Point in Rockport!
Scenic views of the town, beautiful vistas with island views, and Rockport Harbor are among the many things you’ll see along the way.
Year round residents and those visiting for the Summer are welcome to park (respectfully) along the road, and take off from wherever they feel comfortable. Depending on where you begin, along the path you’ll run into a structure dubbed the “Children’s Chapel.” So named for the children that Helene Bok graciously remembered, Helene Bok built the Children’s Chapel after a hotel called the Tamarack Lodge burned to the ground in 1954. 6 years later the lush gardens, and beautiful Chapel were built, and have been enjoyed by locals and visitors ever since. Home to events, weddings, ceremonies, and more, it’s worth a stop (and a sit…)
Next on the round would be the Belted Galloway cows of Aldermere Farms. This farm is home to these magnificent animals, and everyone knows it. Quite the famous farm, they offer tours, and often participate in local events. In the proper season, the field across the street is the grazing spot, and you can get quite the “close-up” of the cows if you time it right.
Of course, if that’s not enough, you get the amazing views and ocean’s edge to gaze at. The point, as it’s so called, is probably the most magnificent of them all.
