Boston’s South Shore has similar features to the North Shore and Cape Cod, but somehow avoids the throngs which typically crowd other beautiful resort towns during the summer months. Without the hordes of tourists and due to the relative scarcity of industrial development, home buyers looking for a dream home in a peaceful environment turn to the Boston South Shore real estate market. The South Shore area can be characterized as being 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.
