Located seventeen miles north of Boston, the picturesque seacoast town of Marblehead (circa1649) is steeped in history.  Known through the years as the birthplace of the American Navy, it has more recently become known as one of the yachting capitals of the world. Pleasure boating is certainly a popular pastime for its residents and the harbor is filled with sailing, fishing, lobster and pleasure boats. Mainly a residential community, the town has maintained its old world charm with its antique homes and narrow winding roads. Marblehead provides a vast array of lively events and recreational opportunities including an arts festival, regatta and race week, year-round yacht clubs and jazz concerts. Excellent commuter rail service into Boston’s North Station is available from the neighboring towns of Swampscott and Beverly.

Known as the gateway to Boston’s North Shore, Swampscott is an exclusive, picturesque seaside community. Swampscott is home to many Boston commuters, as the Boston-bound commuter rail departs each morning from the Swampscott depot, one of the last remaining Victorian-style railroad depots in the country. Swampscott’s clean, sandy beaches, with their gentle tides and refreshing ocean breezes attract many visitors during the summer months. Nearby Fisherman’s Beach provides a pleasant view of Swampscott Harbor, its many brightly colored fishing and pleasure vessels, and its resident launch service.
