South Shore MA

Boston’s South Shore has similar features to the North Shore and Cape Cod, but somehow avoids the throngs that typically crowd other beautiful resort towns during the summer months. Absent the hordes of tourists and the relative scarcity of industrial development has left the area comfortably residential and somewhat rural.

Hingham has a beautiful harbor and beaches with ferry service to Boston. Scituate and Cohasset feature maritime charm and beautiful ocean views. Hull is a peninsula that juts into the bay and offers large beaches and oceanfront homes.

Immediately south of Boston are the larger suburban towns of Milton, Quincy, and Dedham with a suburban lifestyle appealing to commuters. Farther south, with Routes 24 and 28 passing through them, the Bridgewaters are also ideally located for commuters.

The South Shore Plaza, located in Braintree, is New England’s largest shopping center. This strategic location has attracted urban professionals and their families. Canton is conveniently located at the junction of Routes 95 and 128 while Foxborough lies where Routes 95 and 495 meet, making these towns ideal for easy travel options to Cape Cod, Rhode Island, and Boston.
