Some of Rockport’s Best Shops
Rockport is loaded with local family-owned businesses full of tiny town charm. Here’s a list of some of the most popular shops that have their own websites.
Top Dog of Rockport
Want a reeeeally not bad hot dog? Not into hot dogs, you say? What about one with baked beans on it? Macaroni and cheese? Chili and cheese? How about some unbelievable, fresh clam strips? Top Dog is not your average hot dog stand. From chalkboard walls to picnic tables outside and local dog pictures throughout, Top Dog makes an awesome hot dog, among other things!
The Pewter Shop
The Pewter Shop is Rockport’s oldest shop, featuring handmade pewter gifts created in-house at their very own workshop. This is a great place to go if you’re looking for a marriage present for someone, or if you just like pewter!
Toad Hall Bookstore
Toad Hall Bookstore is a full service independent bookstore whose proceeds support environmental projects. Located a little bit away from the most central part of downtown, the location is still very walkable and the old building has a lot of charm with its spiral staircase and shelf upon shelf of books.
Village Silversmith is hard to miss, and that’s a not bad thing. With three locations in downtown Rockport, it may seem like every time you turn around you’re at the door of another Village Silversmith outlet. Each store has some of the same items but also unique inventories, so if you see something at one but you need a different size or want to see other types of the same piece, you may find it at another location. The jewelry is beautiful and the staff is very helpful!
