Welcome to Winthrop!

Spend your day in Winthrop, a beautiful oceanside community situated at the entrance to one of the most beautiful harbors in New England!  We are a peninsula of 1.6 square miles and boast some of the most spectacular views on the East Coast.

On one side we have a panoramic view of Massachusetts Bay, and on the other we have the Boston Skyline and inner harbor silhouetted against the sky.  

We are a quaint and friendly New England town with shops, parks, marinas, golf, inns and miles of lovely beaches.

Winthrop borders East Boston, a City of Boston neighborhood. By public transportation you can get to Winthrop from Boston in just 25 minutes and from the airport in 15 minutes. By car Boston is 15 minutes away.

Winthrop is also just a short boat ride from many communities on both the North and South Shore. Think of Winthrop as the gateway to the North Shore.
