Old Sloop Coffeehouse is located at The First Congregational Church of Rockport, 12 School Street, Rockport, Massachusetts. A map is below. To get driving directions, click on the marker for First Congregational Church, click Google+ page, and click Directions.
The church has only a very small parking area that is reserved for performers for Old Sloop Coffeehouse concerts.
There is metered parking on School Street, Main Street, and other downtown streets. Meter rates and time limits vary. The meters nearest the church cost 25 cents for each half hour, accept only quarters, have a 5 hour limit, and are active until 6:00 pm. The metered spaces are almost always occupied in the summer when the weather is good.
There is free parking on the streets just out of the downtown area on School Street, Main Street, High Street, and others. Many of these spaces are a short walk from the church. These spaces are also in high demand at peak tourist times.
There is parking for Rockport residents on T Wharf and in the lot near Town Hall just off Broadway, both of which are a short walk from the church. Do not park in resident-only areas unless your car bears a Rockport parking sticker. The Rockport police are zealous about defending resident-only parking.
Rockport offers a Park ‘n Ride service during the busiest times of the year. The Park ‘n Ride lot is adjacent to the transfer station on upper Main Street, about a mile from the downtown. Parking is free, and the Cape Ann Transportation Authority offers an inexpensive shuttle service between the Park ‘n Ride lot and the downtown. See details of the shuttle service here.
