Presented by Tara Coveney from Coldwell Banker
We know Boston is a great city to live in but maybe city living is getting the best of you and the greener pastures of the suburbs is calling your name. Wondering where to move? North? South? West? Considered a South Shore expert, Tara Coveney from Coldwell Banker shares her 5 reasons South Shore coastal towns of Hingham and Cohasset are too good to overlook.
By the sea. There’s nothing better than traveling around town and smelling the salt air and seeing the boats bobbing in the harbor. Or how about sitting at Sandy Beach in Cohasset while the waves lap at your feet. Don’t forget about the July 4th fireworks on the harbor and lobster night on the beach. Even during the cold days of winter, being on the water gives you hope for warm weather. Living in Hingham or Cohasset is like being on vacation year-round.
The Commute. You may have heard “oh, the south shore is so hard to get to.” It’s a ploy, we started that to keep our towns hidden gems. But apparently the word is out….Hingham: 35 minute commute by train or boat! And I don’t mean a sketchy, clanky ol’ boat. This boat has a cafe/bar! Chill with a book and decompress after a long day or hang out on the top deck, warm breeze, gorgeous sunsets, friends and a cold beer. Bottom Line: Is it really a commute when you enjoy it?
The small town feel with city amenities. Hingham and Cohasset have the charm of the typical New England town, with rich history, quaint downtown shops, classic historic homes, steepled churches and treelined main streets. That doesn’t mean we live like it’s 1776. We’ve got hip coffee shops, amazing restaurants, quaint boutiques and big name shopping at The Derby Street Shops – think Crate and Barrel, Lulu Lemon, Whole Foods and the Shipyard. We also have plenty of fitness studios including yoga, spin, barre, and Orange Theory.
Green Space. The rat race can get you down so make sure to hit the great outdoors. Bike in Wompatuck State Park, climb Turkey Hill, explore Whitney Thayer Woods, or enjoy the view of Boston while walking World’s End trails. Hingham and Cohasset are blessed with abundant natural surroundings.
Bottom Line. If you’re thinking about making a move, Hingham and Cohasset are perfect towns to explore. Featuring Blue Ribbon schools, residents focused on family and community, who help make it easier than ever to get connected and become part of these welcoming towns.
