Directions to Nahant
Nahant is 15 miles (40 minutes) north of Boston along the coast.
There is a multi-year construction project on the Causeway to Nahant, this should not affect travel
time, we will post updates if extra travel time is deemed necessary. It will be beach season so some
extra traffic is usually present at this time of year, stay in the right lane when entering Nahant to
bypass those waiting to enter the beach parking lot.
The Ball and Workshop are at the Town Hall: 334 Nahant Road
From I-93 North: Take the Ted Williams Tunnel (see below)
From the Mass Pike eastbound: Take the Turnpike to its end, (very end after all the
tollbooths) and continue through the Ted Williams Tunnel. At the end of the tunnel you will continue
onto route 1A, you will pass by Logan Airport on the right, as well as the Suffolk Downs Racetrack and
lots of oil tanks. About 3.4 miles from the tunnel the road will go up a ramp and reach a rotary. Take
the first exit (a right) off this rotary, (staying on 1A North). (Follow directions from the end of
Route 16 at this point).
From route 16: 16 ends at this rotary, becoming part of 1A. In 0.4 miles you will come to
another rotary at Wonderland dog racing park, take the second exit staying on 1A. Drive 2.5 miles, and
go over a bridge; you are now in Lynn. Route 1A continues straight for another 1.8 miles, where it
takes a sharp left at a set of traffic lights, you should bear right on the Carroll Parkway, it is
still the same road (following the signs to Nahant/Swampscott). There are two Dunkin Donuts shortly
before this turn-off. In 0.5 miles you will come to another rotary, take the first exit onto the
Nahant Road causeway, at the welcome to Nahant sign, there should now be water on both sides of you.
Once in Nahant:
To get to the Workshop and Ball: Continue 3.1 miles from the beginning of the Causeway, the
Town Hall will be on the left just after Richland Store (0.4 miles after passing a church), parking is
in the rear, use the entrance of the Town Hall at the rear on the side near the Richland.
