CGPR is located in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Just north of Boston, it’s one of the most beautiful towns on the East Coast, a sailing mecca and rich in history. Stop by the office to say “hello” and be sure to enjoy some of our favorite places:
FOOD & DRINK
Café Italia. Nice, fun atmosphere for Italian dining with windows that open to the street just as if you were in Italy.
5 Corners Kitchen. Perfect for a date night or if you’re in the mood for good food with a French twist.
The Landing. Harbor dining and a Marblehead tradition — great place to see Marblehead’s version of the “rush hour” — sailboats galore!
Terry’s Ice Cream A Marblehead original, Terry’s ice cream has been around forever and just opened up this new location.
Coffey Ice Cream Locals and dogs swear by the great, off beat flavors of ice cream that can be enjoyed in the outdoor seating area.
Grace Oliver. Perfect little secluded beach area in a small, protected cove.
Devereux Beach. This beach is the most popular of the Marblehead beaches with a view of Boston. You will find the most energetic atmosphere here; Lime Rickey’s, a Marblehead mainstay, has wonderful choices for food, smoothies and fried clams.
Abbot Hall. A town hall and historical museum, Abbot Hall contains the original of the widely-reproduced Spirit of ’76 painting by Archibald MacNeal Willard and a number of other historical artifacts. A plaque on display in the Selectmen’s room proclaims Marblehead to be the “Birthplace of the American Navy.”
Castle Rock Park. This 1.20 acre park, located off Ocean Avenue on Marblehead Neck, gets its name from the castle-like private home next to the park. Castle Rock was once a lookout for arriving and departing fishing fleets and for pirate and enemy ships. It offers spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean with benches, fishing and off-shore sailing.
Crocker Park has some of the best views of Marblehead Harbor, with a pavilion, a gazebo, benches, restrooms and a swimming float. It is home to four days of music during July’s Festival of the Arts.
Jeremiah Lee Mansion A magnificent colonial Georgian home built by American craftsmen in 1768 when Lee was the wealthiest merchant and ship owner in Massachusetts. Preserved in its nearly original state, the house stands as a tribute to both colonial America’s strong ties to England and its independent commercial success. Guided tours of 18 furnished rooms on three floors give visitors an overview of the daily life, surroundings, and occupations of Marblehead residents.
