Manchester Massachusetts is filled with exclusive estates and nook and cranny neighborhoods tucked along scenic Route 127. Manchester is located on the North Shore of Massachusetts and is one of four towns including Essex, Gloucester and Rockport located on historic and scenic Cape Ann.
Don't miss walking the trails in the Coolidge Reservation. It is home to seaweed draped rocks and tide pools alive with all sorts of fascinating little creatures. Don't miss the path through the woods to Clarke Pond with its creek that connects it to the Atlantic Ocean.
Downtown is filled with great restaurants and wonderful little shops for browsing. Manchester is a mostly upscale residential community but does have some public beach access including beautiful Singing Beach which includes views of Baker's Island and Little Misery Island.
DID YOU KNOW: that Singing Beach really does sing? If you pull your hands through the sand or shuffle your feet over it, it makes a squeaking sound kind of like a high pitched violin! Come and try it!
