Marblehead: A Sailors Town
We love sailing, and we love a good sailors town. Marblehead, Massachusetts fits the bill for us. Offering a perfect harbour, which is chock-full of boats in the Summer. The old town spills up over the low hill to the West of the harbour. One of the oldest colonial neighbourhoods in American, it’s dotted with fun bars, restaurants, shopping and boat yards.
The town stretches out to the point to the East which comprises a neighborhood of newer, larger houses and several of the countries oldest yacht clubs. The water is deep and cold, and the coastline is rocky. Small bays are etched into the shoreline. Marblehead offers stunning sunrises, which you can see looking East from old town, and awesome sunsets. Take in a Summer Sunset from the verandah of Corinthian or Boston Yacht Clubs (you have to be a member or a guest of a member) and watch the sun descend over the old town dropping behind the church spires and sailboat masts.
