Just south of Cape Cod and north of Mattapoisett Mattapoisett lies the picturesque town of Marion, Massachusetts, a small, coastal community situated on Buzzards Bay. A secret jewel of the South Coast, Marion offers pristine waters for sailing, challenging golf courses, sparkling beaches and beautiful scenery that inspires artists of all kinds.
Marion is home to approximately 5,000 people, though the population doubles in the summer months as the charm of this quaint, historic town attracts seasonal residents. Roughly 60 miles from Boston and Providence with easy access to Route I-95, Marion provides a convenient summer respite for those who want to leave the city behind in the warm weather. Still, though the town’s population grows during July and August, its relaxed way of life remains relatively untouched.
Things To Do in Marion
Warm weather activities are plentiful in Marion. The Little Marion Golf Club, a public course, and Kittansett Country Club, a prestigious, private course, are just two of the many area courses for golfers. Sun worshippers and swimmers have their choice of public beaches, like the popular Old Silver Beach and Wood Neck Beach. Boaters moor their boats in the Sippican Harbor, home port to the exclusive Beverly Yacht Club. In fact, Marion has attracted international acclaim in the sailing world thanks to the Marion-to- Bermuda Yacht Race which began more than 40 years ago. If tennis is your thing, Marion is also home to the historic and private clay-court Sippican Tennis Club.
Marion is also home to Tabor Academy, an esteemed private school situated on the harbor. Surrounding the beautiful campus, you’ll find the homes of wealthy sea captains overlooking the sea. In-town homes within an easy walk to the old-timey Marion General Store or gracious Marion Elizabeth Taber Library, carry the same historic appeal, making you feel like you’ve stepped back in time.
