Last printed in 2005, the Massachusetts Coast Guide to Boston Harbor and the North Shore was developed by the Massachusetts Office of Coastal Zone Management (CZM) to help the public get to and enjoy the coast. It includes nearly 400 public access sites from Salisbury to Hingham—ranging from expansive beaches to out-of-the-way scenic vistas.

While currently out of print, links to the PDF versions of Coast Guide background information, 22 maps, and accompanying site descriptions are provided below:
