Known to locals as a getaway just 45 minutes from Boston proper, Marshfield Hills combines the essence of the Cape with the convenience of being just close enough to a large city. A nature-lover’s destination, the town is thriving with an enormous wildlife population and supports its human’s curiosity with a plethora of activities for all ages. Come for the beaches, stay for the calming peace of the Daniel Webster Wildlife Sanctuary or the Levitate Music and Arts Festival, hosted by the local surf shop of the same name. Don’t forget to stop by the famous throwback General Store, owned and maintained by actor Steve Carrell and his sister-in-law.

Head for the Hills
Could it be that a tiny village only 30 miles from Boston has the best water views on the South Shore?
Marshfield Hills is the hill village that sits above the winding course of the North River. If you enter the Hills from Main Street and wind your way down to where the streets are named for the people who settled there, the views of salt marsh, tidal creeks, river, pond and ocean form a panorama of nature and community that is both rare and beautiful.
