Do you mean Rockport, Massachusetts or Rockport, Maine (you have posted in the Maine Forum)? There is commuter rail service to Rockport, MA, but as far as I know, no train service to Rockport, ME (Amtrak will get you as far north as Brunswick). Based on one of your other threads, I suspect you mean MA. You can easily walk from the depot to the small downtown and Bearskin Neck areas. If you want to see more of Cape Ann, Cape Ann Transit (CATA) provides bus service although the schedule is not too frequent (and is not offered on Sundays, which is the date of your visit, I think).
