Hi, in this entry, we will go over the beautiful, historic CBD of Rockport.

The CBD as well as the entire region of Rockport was heavily inspired by medium sized maritime cities such as Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Very dense, old buildings, narrow roads, lots of W2W buildings and very few parking spots.

A few overviews of the downtown core

The Burton Bridge, the northernmost bridge was constructed in 1898 and served as the only way to cross the South Rocky River other than by boat until 1986. The newer and far larger Coverdale Bridge

was constructed in 1985 and opened that following year. It is also the beginning of the H-30 highway, passing near the downtown core, into the city of Burton and heading east.

The Rockport City Hall was constructed in 1852 and still serves as the city hall today!

Stratford Street, the street going horizontally, as well as Casey and Piers Street, the two going vertically is part of the infamous Uptown District as the locals call it. It is dotted with clubs, bars restaurants,

and small shops. It's a popular spot for the younger crowd who are looking for a good time.

Many smaller communities and towns can be found along the bay such as Averdeen, a town of about 3500 people, and the village of Merlot. The Metro Rockport Region currently has a population of 301 842.
