Boston’s North Shore and Cape Ann has always been a prized destination; especially for city bound Bostonians seeking the region’s cooling breezes, bucolic landscapes and a much needed respite from the hot city summer. They settled along the rocky coastline and sandy beaches of early hamlets from Nahant, Marblehead, Prides Crossing, Beverly Farms, Manchester, Magnolia and Eastern Point and gradually spread inland to the ancient villages of Ipswich, Topsfield, Hamilton and Wenham. To this day the legacy of ‘The Gold Coast’ with its handsome, traditional architecture, expansive equestrian estates and charming village centers provide an invigorating backdrop to a decidedly modern and economically vibrant tapestry of people, places and institutions.
Although the North Shore is very much a distinct locale, it is less than an hour from the city of Boston and Logan International Airport, and not more than several hours to other New England attractions such as the White Mountains of New Hampshire, The Green Mountains of Vermont and the magical coast of Maine.
As you explore our historic cities and towns and natural areas, you will hear and see the stories of the people, and the land. Historic seaports and New England town commons; industrial mills and pristine beaches; renowned museums; thriving artist colonies; top notch public and private schools, colleges and universities as well as wildlife refuges; working farms and inviting natural reserves and so much more.
It would be a great privilege to help you discover why Boston’s North Shore is such a wonderful place to call home
