Marblehead – See a Harbor Full of Boats

A Daytripper’s Delight for Lobster Lovers!

Love scenery with your lobster?  This lovely town is for you! Settled in 1629 and birthplace of the American Navy, Marblehead boasts a bustling boating community steeped in maritime history.  Plan a lobster roll picnic at either Devereux Beach or Marblehead Neck  – a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean.  Along the scenic ride, you’ll notice a picturesque harbor on your left filled with lobster boats, sailboats and plenty of yachts!   Travel to the top of Marblehead Neck on Harbor Avenue and you’ll come to Chandler Hovey Park and this where you’ll come an interesting lighthouse known as Marblehead Light.   Overlooking the ocean, this is a picture perfect spot and makes a great stop before a romantic lobster dinner.   Be sure to upload your pictures to your social media sites.  Your friends will wish they were with you!

Worked up an appetite?   This coastal gem on the North Shore features fabulous hot spots for fresh seafood and lobster.   Make your way to Front Street for more views of the boats, buoys and traps and dine at any one of the casual eateries along they way.   The lobster is local and always fresh!

Why we love it:  They filmed notable movies in Marblehead!   It’s a pretty seaside town with lots of nooks and crannies to explore.
