THE HARDY BOYS ONLINE: An unofficial online resource for fans of the Hardy Boys books


The Hardys live in Bayport, a small but thriving city of 50,000 inhabitants located on Barmet Bay, a horseshoe-shaped inlet three miles inland from the Atlantic Ocean.

The Hardy home, an old stone structure set in a large, tree-shaded lawn at the corner of Elm and High streets, is where many of the mysteries begin. Also on the property is a garage, and its second floor has been converted into a well-equipped laboratory that Frank and Joe often use while solving a case.
