Boston Harbor
by: Susan

If you can get to any of the Boston Harbor islands, there is quite a bit.

Not talking about Spectacle Island.

I work at an island a stones throw from Spectacle and there is tons on my beach.
There are about 7 islands you can get to in the harbor.

Nice old pieces I find daily.

We found tons of sea glass here! With 1 adult & 2 kids we had 3 quart size bags in less than 2 hours. There was alot of brown, but there was also alot of green & white. Very easy to find.

Great sea glass beach in New England
by: Anonymous

Wells Beach, ME has been great since the winter. Lots and lots of different size pieces of sea glass.

Not sure if this winter's weather (lots of sea storms) have anything to do with why there is so much sea glass.

Lots of rocks and sea glass as really changed the look of the beach this winter. Great Sea Glass to be found!

It's not one you can walk to, but Ten Pound Island here in Gloucester, MA, has great sea glass. On a recent trip my husband and I collected 8 pounds!

Sachuest Point RI

Sachuest Point Rhode Island is a good source for finding lots of glass.

The Sachuest Wildlife Sanctuary is by far one of the most gorgeous areas to walk, run, or stroll.

A short trip down the cliffs and there's glass and lots of interesting rocks as well.

We do not find pottery here, but lots of glass.
