Marblehead, MA

A cozy seaside town north of Boston.

Photo of Marblehead, MA Marblehead, Massachusetts, a coastal community about 20 miles north of Boston, has the feel of a Cornish village. Indeed, the settlers of Marblehead came from Cornwall, England, and apparantly wanted their New World town to look like, well, an OLD world town. Not much has changed since Colonial times; Marblehead has quaint, crooked lanes, beautiful old homes, inns, and bed and breakfasts, and spectacular ocean views.

Photo of Marblehead, MA There is much to do in Marblehead, including browsing through antique stores, enjoying some of the best restaurants north of Boston, and biking and walking along the hilly streets of Old Town and Marblehead Neck. Marblehead is not the easiest town to get to, as it is on a peninsula with few roads in or out of town, but if you can find Marblehead, you will certainly want to return again and again to this special place.
