If you’re looking for a small, seaside town within 20 minutes of Boston by car or commuter rail, Swampscott may be the perfect choice.


Bordering the North Shore communities of Lynn, Marblehead and Salem, the 3-square mile town (6.7 if you count the water) was a nationwide hub of commercial fishing and lobstering in the early years. It even lays claim to being the "birthplace" of the lobster pot. 

During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Swampscott was an affluent summer resort area with soaring grand hotels accommodating Boston's elite and wealthy tourists from across the state. 

The buildings that housed these posh establishments no longer exist, and the community is now an upscale suburb with about 14,000 year-round residents. Housing choices abound with over 100 properties currently for sale ranging from homes in the mid $300,000s to multi-million dollar oceanfront estates. 

The era of New England's grand resort hotels has passed, but the town of Swampscott will always retain its allure, attracting visitors to its rocky coastline and beautiful white sand beaches when summer warms its shores.
