We booked a room in Rockport for 2 nights and it sounds great but I'm wondering if it is too quiet in the evenings. We like to go out for a stroll and maybe go to a restaurant or pub and talk to the locals and just see the culture of the area . Just wondering if the town shuts down after 6 PM. We don't keep a late night but might want to stay out till 9 or 10. Would a cab or some other public transportation accommodate us between towns. 1st time to the area so really don't know what to expect . Thanks. Not too late to change our reservations. How far is Gloucester from Rockport?
