Sippican Harbor
MARION
Small town, big coastline
Out and about
BY JAYNE GUERTIN
At a glance
There is a lot to be said for small-town life, especially in the charming South
Coast town of Marion. Because of the town’s modest size – less than 5,000
year-round residents – people tend to get to know one another, which
translates into a tight-knit, friendly community. Its location, 50 miles south
of Boston and 40 miles southeast of Providence, Rhode Island, makes it
an ideal place for four-season living. And its school system, comprised of
private and public options from pre-K through high school, includes the
prestigious Tabor Academy, a boarding and day school that draws students
in grades 9-12 from all over the world.

Since almost half of the town’s square miles are made of water embodying
pretty marshes, coves and inlets, it’s not uncommon to see neighbors and
visitors walking the shoreline, or kayaking and sailing Marion’s gorgeous,
meandering coastline.
Boaters appreciate Marion’s deep-water Sippican Harbor, which is
dotted with stately homes. The town has several boatyards, marinas and
yacht clubs for sailors, and history buffs will find many sites of interest,
including the Historic Windmill and the Bird Island Light. Local golf
courses include the 9-hole Marion Golf Club, and The Kittansett Club,
beautifully situated on Buzzards Bay and ranked No.
