Marblehead, MA —
A Whole Lot More to Marblehead

When Coastal Living magazine named Marblehead one of the country’s Happiest Seaside Towns they said, “A great harbor will always make a great coastal town, and Marblehead is exhibit A.” And, that’s the truth. Mostly. We’d argue, however, that (while our harbor is unquestionably beautiful), there’s a whole lot more to Marblehead that makes those of us lucky enough to live here so happy.

"Marblehead is nothing if not a town steeped in water-based tradition and activity."

Her Waters:

From the picturesque harbor - that fills with boats in the summer and all but empties but for hard working lobster boats in the much colder months – to her rocky ocean shores, Marblehead is nothing if not a town steeped in water-based tradition and activity. Our 4.2 square miles offer 14 miles of stunning coastline. Home to a staggering six yacht clubs (including one strictly for members under 21 years old), Marblehead’s sailing and boating culture is woven into the fabric of many residents. So, whether it’s swimming off Crocker Park, sailing from Pleon’s docks, fishing for bluefish offshore or simply enjoying a day at the beach that you seek, Marblehead’s a great place to find exactly what you’re looking for.

"at the root of it all, it is her community that truly makes us one of America’s happiest spots."

Her People:

Be they 14th generation ‘Headers or first time home-buyers, it’s her citizens that truly make Marblehead special. Marblehead has always run by a true “Town Meeting” form of government and, every May, we gather as citizens to do the business of the town. Marblehead offers countless opportunities throughout the year to come together as a community, be it the annual Christmas Walk Weekend, 4th of July Fireworks or the Marblehead Arts Festival. And come together we do!
So, yes. Coastal Living had it right. We are a town set upon a beautiful harbor. But, at the root of it all, it is her community that truly makes us one of America’s happiest spots.
