The Beautiful South Shore of Massachusetts
The South Shore consists of cities and towns immediately south of Boston Massachusetts that lie in both Plymouth County and Norfolk County. The upper South Shore consists of larger suburban communities just outside of Boston including the City of Quincy and Towns of Braintree and Weymouth, which has a combined population of about 180,000 residents. The South Shore is easily accessible by highway, subway, commuter rail and commuter boat to and from Boston and Logan International airport operated by the MBTA. Route 3 is the major highway heading south from metropolitan Boston and points west. Whichever part of the South Shore you reside in, the South Shore is full of beauty, history and a sense of community.
South Shore Communities With A Small Hometown Feel
Smaller communities include Holbrook, Avon, Randolph, Rockland, Abington, Whitman, Hanson, Hanover and Pembroke. Many of these towns haven’t changed much in the last few decades other than more people have moved there because of its proximity to Boston and the area amenities. There is still a small hometown feel in these communities, which makes them appealing to many buyers considering a new home.
Coastal and oceanfront towns South of Boston consist of Hull, Cohasset, Hingham, Norwell, Scituate, Marshfield, Duxbury and Plymouth. Those lucky enough to have ocean views get the best seat in the house on beautiful summer days or during the wrath of a winter Nor’Easter. But for many, the ocean is just miles, if not minutes away for all to enjoy. Quincy, Braintree and Weymouth also have some neighborhoods that are considered oceanfront with dramatic views of the bays, inlets and Atlantic ocean. For many, if not all, our lives here on the South Shore are always connected to the Ocean and our beaches.
