The coastal town of Essex is located along the meandering Essex River just 25 miles north of Boston. Essex is known to have some of the best clam flats in the world and has a rich maritime history, focused mainly around ship building. With 3500 residents, Essex encompasses almost 16 square miles, including an enormous marsh system, acres of unspoiled woodlands and beautiful scenery. The small town of Essex is filled with antique shops and restaurants, most notably Woodman’s of Essex, and also offers a marina, kayaking, sailing, river cruises and some of the best sunsets in the region. Essex’s is part of the Manchester Essex Regional Schoolsystem, which has been noted as one of the top school systems in the state by Boston Magazine.
