Welcome to the North Shore.
Head north from Boston along the Atlantic and you’ll quickly find yourself surrounded by the pristine rocky beaches, coastal charm, and historic communities of the North Shore. From fishing villages dotted with luxury shops and boutique hotels to towns as rich with New England history as modern sensibilities, the North Shore has a way of pairing the unexpected to create a truly distinct region. If historic towns, pristine vistas, and seafaring charm appeals to you, the North Shore may be the spot for you. The locals do send a word of warning for newcomers, though—“You’re going to need a bigger boat.”
