Chandler Hovey Park and the Marblehead Lighthouse are on the northern tip of Marblehead Neck. It's a great place to just sit and enjoy the views of Marblehead and Marblehead harbor. Quiet and serene, find a bench and just lose yourself in the views while...More

On our adventure up the east coast, the Marblehead Lighthouse was on our list of must-see places. We easily found it via our GPS. The drive here was very scenic and the houses along the way were breathtaking. There were a lot of people walking...More

Beautiful park overlooking the ocean, with benches and rocks/outcroppings to sit on. Good for couples, families, kids. Parking can be a bit tight.

Great place to relax and watch the sunrise or set as well as enjoy the sights of the boats on Marblehead harbor! There is room for kids to play as well as for couples to stroll here.

At the end of the Marblehead Neck you will find an old lighthouse crowning a lovely park surrounded on three sides with ocean. Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy. Dangerous rocks limit activity for small children who need to be kept close. But the views...More

A small park to sit on benches and watch the sea and boats. The bathrooms were dirty and no toilet paper. You can still use them just bring toilet paper in case. Bring a book, snack and you could stay there all afternoon.

We love to visit lighthouses in New England, and after you've seen ones like Nubble LIght, the Marblehead Light is a letdown. You can see from the images that it is not a classic light. Respect, however. But not the photo op you may be...More
