Was not born here, but have grown to love Rockport! Rockport is a quaint town in Midcoast Maine, and is the perfect environment to raise a family in. Summers here are beautiful, and can be filled with hiking, and lake adventures.

I moved to the area with my family when they were teenagers they couldn't be happier. Their experience at school was phenomenal both academically and athletically. The community has everything you could ask for and the views of the ocean are spectacular!
Great place to raise a family, as well as to summer. Rockport is one of the most beautiful small towns that offers both a quiet living as well as an eventful downtown area that offers a variety of family-friendly activities.
