Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts is the perfect location to visit during the spring, summer and fall. During the warmer months, enjoy the water activities and strolls by the Harbor or spend the day at the beach. In the fall, take in the picturesque view of the foliage while strolling downtown and at Tuck's Point.
