A small seaside town, Marion’s population swells to more than double during the summer months. Its harbor, Sippican Harbor, is one of the prettiest on Buzzards Bay and the town has numerous well-preserved, still functioning public buildings. In the sailing world, Marion is famous for its biennial, odd-years-only Marion to Bermuda Yacht Race. Tabor Academy, known as the school by the sea, attracts students from across the county and around the world.
