Known as Manchester-by-the-sea, this scenic, coastal, Massachusetts town was originally a fishing community, then a popular summer spot for Boston society, and now today, it’s a pretty vacation area home to a little over 5000 people.
In Manchester, you can stroll through the lovely town and wander into boutiques and bookshops, like the Central Street Gallery, where the artists' works change frequently. A further walk around town and you’ll be admiring the architecture, some of which is notable for its former residents and Queen Anne style. In, or close to town, there are various natural attractions. The Singing Beach, so called for the way the sand makes a noise when you step on it is a popular attraction. It’s a secluded, delightful spot perfect for a long, breezy walk. Walk to Agassiz Rock where you can climb a small hill and take in great views across the countryside, next to huge boulders. Masconomo Park is a peaceful place to spend time in nature, as is Coolidge Reservation. You can also head down to the sea to charter a sail boat.
Come to Manchester in the late spring or early summer for lovely weather and a bustling vibe along the coast.
