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 you lose all track of the hustle and bustle you went through to get there.
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.

Went out to lighthouse point for a picnic. This was a great spot to sit with a couple beach chairs and watch all the boat come in and out of the harbor. Seemed to be a crowd of younger people coming and going, as I believe it was a Pokémon location, but it didn't bother us.

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 seeking.
This location is off the beaten path and great place to get a relaxing experience of the coast and Marblehead harbor. The kids enjoyed exploring the rocky cost and getting their feet wet.
