Going to Rockport while staying at the Atlantis Oceanfront Inn is perfect to enjoy the July 4th holiday. Be sure to visit the Rockport Firemen’s Parade and bonfire during the July 4th holiday. The parade takes place downtown at 6 PM with a concert on Back Beach by the Rockport Legion Band taking place at 8. But don’t leave after the show- the annual bonfire starts in the same spot around 9 PM! We suggest bringing a blanket, relaxing on beautiful Back Beach, and enjoying the festivities.
