Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA 01944
When arriving from the South, Manchester by-the-Sea is the first Cape Ann community you will find, just 20 miles north of Boston. Manchester by-the-Sea is a residential community wrapped around one of New England’s most picturesque harbors. Founded as Jeffery’s Creek in the mid-1800’s, this town is located at the southerly end of Cape Ann.
A trip to Singing Beach, aptly named because of how the sand resonates when you walk on it, or Tuck’s Point is worth your time and then some. Unique retail shops, great restaurants and enticing galleries, jewelry stores and boutiques fill this town of just over 5,000 residents. The Manchester Historical Museum’s Trask House is a must-see to get the complete story of this town, its remarkable heritage and its beautiful, historic architecture.
