These 10 Small Towns In New England Look Like They’re From A Hallmark Movie

Rockport’s Bearskin Neck village captivates with lights, boughs, carolers, and Motif #1 décor by the harbor

This artsy community on Cape Ann looks like a Christmas card come to life. Motif Number 1, the iconic red fishing shack on Bradley Wharf, gets decked out in holiday splendor. Stroll Bearskin Neck, where wreaths hang from lamplights, then pop into quaint shops and galleries trimmed in pine boughs for holiday craft fairs.

On weekends, enjoy caroling and catch Santa arriving by lobster boat. Don’t miss the annual Rockport Holiday Festival, where downtown comes alive with music, refreshments, carolers dressed in Victorian garb, and a jolly holiday vibe. With its postcard harbor views and twinkling lights, Rockport embodies New England holiday charm.
