ALL THE REASONS TO LOVE ROCKPORT
SMALL TOWN CHARM, BIG CITY AMENITIES
With its unique combination of coastal appeal, rich culture, and quick access to excellent healthcare, shopping, and services nearby, Rockport is positioned to provide everything you want and need.
Named for the rock ledge underlying its shore, the charming fishing village of Rockport was founded just after the Civil War as a cattle slaughtering, packing, and shipping port. A favorite coastal hideaway for wealthy Texans since the 1800s, Rockport today is known for its endless recreational activities and has been nationally recognized as a top destination. Coastal Living Magazine ranked Rockport as a “coastal dream town” and Better Homes and Gardens listed Rockport-Fulton as a top destination for a “long weekend hotspot”. Rockport was also named in the 2011 Readers Choice Best Gulf Coast Towns along with being in the Top 100 Best Small Art Towns of America.
