South Shore Towns

 

 Perfect New England Towns -The South Shore ( towns south of Boston to the bridge that  separates Cape Cod) is the fastest growing in Massachusetts, yet it remains a peaceful atmosphere in many areas.  It's hard to imagine a more scenic coastline than, Cohasset and Scituate, the pastoral beauty of the North River marshlands, or the relaxed atmosphere of Nantasket Beach.  We who live here like all this beauty for granted but it is easy to appreciate when  you leave and return to the area.  Each town has something special to offer from dramatic rocky coastline, sandy beaches, farmland, town forests, the Famous North River, ponds, lakes and all within an easy commute to Boston. The region takes great pride in it's excellent educational facilities and justly boasts of having   some of the finest public school systems in the  state. We invite you to visit our towns on line and urge you to come for a personal visit.

Cohasset

Cohasset, less than 25 miles south of Boston, is the quintessential small New England coastal town, noted for its quaint harbor with an active lobster fleet, sandy beach and historic village green.  Once visited, you will never forget its breathtaking beauty.  When Captain John Smith discovered "Quonahasset" in 1614, he described it as "a paradise of all these parts."  It has remained so for more than three centuries.  Carved out of a rugged stretch of New England coast, the "long rocky place" of the early Algonquin Indian settlers is today a community recognized for its tranquil beauty and pristine elegance.  See the official Cohasset website at  http://www.state.ma.us/cc/cohasset.html  Cohasset Chamber of Commerce:  www.cohassetchamber.org

 

Hingham

First settled in 1633, Hingham, the twelfth town founded in Massachusetts, was incorporated in 1635 with the words "the name Barecove is changed and hereafter to be called Hingham." Hingham takes pride in maintaining a small town atmosphere, incorporating historic landmarks while balancing demands for 21st century services and amenities. The vibrant village area near the picturesque harbor offers a wide variety of shops and fine dining. A seaside community with a special beauty and rustic charm make it a truly wonderful place to live. See the official Hingham web site at http://hingham-ma.com .

Scituate  

With the magnificent North River to its south, the picturesque Gulph River to its north, and the bold surf of the Atlantic to its east, Scituate is a true coastal town.  Its extensive and diverse shoreline offers a spectacular array of scenic vistas and recreational opportunities for all.  Rich with history, yet still a thriving commercial harbor for lobster fishing, Scituate is an unusual blend of the old and the new.  The harbor is picturesque; the cliffs, rocks, and beaches are beautiful and inviting.  Scituate is a special and unique place to live.  See the official Scituate website at http://town.scituate.ma.us .  Scituate Chamber of Commerce:  www.scituatechamber.org
 
Hull
Hull features Nantasket Beach with fine, light gray sand--generally considered one of the finest beaches in New England.  At low tide, there are acres of tide pools.  Bordered by Hingham Bay to the west, Massachusetts Bay to the north and east and the towns of Cohasset and Hingham to the south, Hull is located almost 20 miles by land from Boston.  See the official Hull website at http://town.hull.ma.us .
