Swampscott Pier & The Red Rock Bistro

Swampscott Pier

On hotter days toward the afternoon we head for the ocean. Swampscott is our closest ocean front and is always 5 degrees cooler even though it is only 3 miles from us. You can tell a native New Englander by the way they pronounce the name of this town. While it may be spelled SWAMP-SCOTT you pronounce it SWAMP-SKIT.

Swampscott is home to our most visited bar and grill The Red Rock Bistro. Every Monday they have dollar sliders (mini-hamburgers) and corndogs and shrimp and oysters. We usually order one of each with our drinks while we watch the tide go in or out from the restaurant window.
