Recently coined by Vogue as “New England’s Best-Kept Seaside Secret,” Marblehead is a picturesque coastal community located 16 miles north of Boston. Heralded as the “Birthplace of the American Navy” and appropriately known as the “Yachting Capital of the World,” Marblehead has a rich nautical history. With arguably the most beautiful natural harbor in the world, the town has no shortage of yacht clubs: Corinthian Yacht Club, Eastern Yacht Club, Boston Yacht Club, Dolphin Yacht Club, and Marblehead Yacht Club
Marblehead offers a variety of housing choices, ranging from single-family homes, historic homes in Old Town, to mega mansions on the Marblehead Neck or Peaches Point.
This seaside community boasts some fantastic restaurants, such as Five Corners Kitchen, Turtle Cove Bar & Grill, The Three Cod, The Barnacle, The Landing, and Maddie’s Top Side. After having dinner at Maddie’s Top Side, venture downstairs to Maddie’s Sail Loft, which is known as one of top “Sailors’ Bars in the World,” and put the bar’s reputation for serving the strongest mixed drinks in New England, and possibly on the entire Eastern Seaboard, to the test.
In addition to the town’s many lush parks and nature trails, Marblehead also has beautiful beaches. Devereux Beach is Marblehead’s most popular beach, as well as one of the most well-loved beaches on the North Shore. The beach offers picnic tables, pavilions and playgrounds, a beach-side restaurant, on-site parking, and restroom facilities.
Marblehead has 11 primary and secondary schools, including one of the best in the state, L. H. Coffin. Additionally, in 2016, Marblehead High School was recently ranked as the 143 best public high school in the country.
