Welcome to the charming New England community of Marblehead, MA. Renowned as the Yachting Capital of America and Birthplace of the American Navy, Marblehead offers the perfect ingredients for your romantic getaway or family vacation.
Just 17 miles north of Boston, Marblehead is home to the most majestic and beautiful harbor on the eastern seaboard, and is an art and cultural center, north of Boston.
Our historic, seacoast town is easily reached by car (30-minutes from Boston), by boat, or by Boston’s MBTA.
Over 30 romantic inns and B&Bs offer a respite from the frenzy of city life. Dozens of imaginative, family-owned boutiques & galleries along with scores of antique, gift and specialty shops dot our "walkable" town for a distinctive shopping experience in a relaxed, friendly environment.
Steeped in history, Marblehead is alive with over 200 homes and buildings that predate the Revolutionary War. Tour several historic mansions with tales of rugged fisherman, intrepid mariners, enterprising merchants, skilled craftsmen, self-reliant women and courageous seamen—all of whom played a crucial role in America’s struggle for Independence.
