Scituate, MA —
Perfectly Scituated” between Boston and Cape Cod Bay.

Scituate, Ma is a quaint, New England, ocean-side town. A perfect place to live, buy your vacation home or just come for a visit. The charm of the town is paralleled by the mix of its residents and all those that visit. Business, or students alike, the commonality is they are all drawn to the relaxed atmospheres and all it offers. I often joke with my clients I think it’s mandatory to own some type of watercraft, boat, canoe, kayak or paddleboard as they all count. Many boaters from along the coast visit our multiple marinas for the first time and immediately fall in love with our seaside town. We are “Perfectly Scituated” between Boston and Cape Cod Bay.

Scituate is one of many towns that make up what is referred to as The South Shore. It is my favorite because of its charm, restaurants, shops, a mix of five public and private beaches, three golf courses and many rivers and inlets to explore. During the summer months, it is worth viewing the town’s website as there are always events and festivals that make it worth your trip either by commuter rail, car or by boat. You can mark your monthly calendar for the First Friday of every month to visit the Scituate Harbor Cultural District, which is always bustling with the locals as well as visitors. Each month there is something new and all the shops stay open late offering some little surprise for their patrons.

"One of two commuter rail stations that will bring you to Boston in about an hour."

An interesting tale for non-locals is the beach of Humarock, also known as Forth Cliff. Physically located in an adjacent town, the beachfront became separated during the infamous Gale of 1898 and created a new inlet. Although still part of the Scituate community today, you need to pass through the adjacent town to reach the beach. By boat, the inlet to the North River divides Marshfield, Norwell and Scituate and at low tide, a large sand spit opens to a large open area of miles of sandy beach and moor lands. This is a not a well-kept secret anymore as hundreds of boats flock to the area on a summer day and parties on the spit are well-known.
