American Locations 7 – Marblehead

This trip goes from Cincinnati, Ohio, to the Boston area, then up the New England coast all the way into Canada, then back through the Adirondacks to the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York.

Another favorite destination when we visit in Massachusetts is Marblehead. It is on a peninsula just east of Salem, jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean. The waterfront district is a great place to walk around.

There are more older houses here that have been preserved than anywhere else I’ve seen. Many date back to the 1600’s.

Our favorite place to eat there is the Barnacle.

We always eat out on the deck.

Overlooking the harbor.

As you can see, the beach is rocky.

But that doesn’t stop people from enjoying it.

Of course, there are less strenuous ways to enjoy the harbor.

This bench is one of my favorites. As you can see, it’s been well-used.

There is a small park.

With a small castle.

With some cool doors. What knockers! Well, thank you, Herr Sherer.

At the other end of the waterfront there is a rocky point with another small park.

But some people have to work here.

Still, it’s a beautiful place on the Atlantic Ocean.
