A Tank Away
Mecca for sailing, boutique shopping, and good restaurants
Marblehead calls itself the Yachting Capital of the World, which sounds impossibly over the top, until you realize how seriously they take sailing here. For instance they love this sport so much, they do it even in winter. If this doesn’t sound like your idea of a grand time, no worries. This postcard-perfect seaport, just 25 miles north of Boston, offers landlubber pleasures, including boutique shopping, good restaurants, and pretty seaside strolls. And dress is preppy-casual.
