North Shore Real Estate
The North Shore of Massachusetts stretches along the coast line from Winthrop just north of Boston to Salisbury and the New Hampshire border. North shore coastal communities are located in Suffolk and Essex Counties. A significant portion of the North Shore features a rocky coastline as well as beautiful beaches, working harbors and protected marshes and estuaries. Upscale affluent communities along the North Shore coast include Manchester, Marblehead and Wenham. More modest beach communities include Newbury, Revere and Salisbury. Gloucester, Newburyport and Salem have long histories as fishing and industrial centers. Commuting options from the North Shore include by car via Rt 128 and MA Rt 1 & 1A, MBTA Rockport & Newburyport Commuter Rail lines, MBTA Subway Blue and Orange Lines and season ferry service from Salem and Winthrop.
