Scituate Lighthouse

Reviewed By Colleen C - Cheshire, Connecticut, United States

Beautiful lighthouse and surrounding scenery. I'm a lighthouse fanatic and no matter what state were are in we try to see as many as we can. Loved sitting and watching the boats coming and going, very peaceful. And a great place for taking photos. I loved reading up on the history of this lighthouse, it's very interesting.

Hornstra Farms

Reviewed By maxwellkg - Boston, Massachusetts

This family farm is a good place for homemade ice cream and we often take the grand-kids there when they visit. Inside the store vegetables in season are very expensive. There are cows available for the children to look at while eating their ice cream.

South Shore Music Circus

For nearly 60 years, the South Shore Music Circus and it’s sister venue, the Cape Cod Melody Tent, have been presenting world-class entertainment in the scenic Massachusetts coastal communities of Cohasset and Hyannis. The only two continuously-operated tent theatres in the round in the United States, the Music Circus and Melody Tent are owned and operated by the South Shore Playhouse Associates, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and supporting the arts, cultural and educational organizations throughout the communities of the South Shore and Cape Cod. With a colorful history dating back to its humble beginning in 1932 in Cohasset, Massachusetts, one interwoven with the fabric of summer theatre history on the east coast, our theatres have emerged as popular destinations for patrons and performers alike, providing a relaxed ambiance and intimate theatre experience where every seat is within 50 feet of the stage.

This venue is the perfect place to hear music. A rotating stage, clean and friendly environment, and great beer choices. I wish I could see every one if my favorite bands and performers here. Based on Vince Gill's fantastic performance, the artists must like it...MoreThank you for your review!

World's End

Rolling hills and rocky shorelines offer sweeping views of the Boston skyline, while tree-lined carriage paths designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted make delightful walking trails.

Reviewed By Stewart T - Boston, Massachusetts

Unfortunately scores of people, lines of cars waiting to get in, barking dogs and loud chatter makes this place as pleasurable as a shopping mall at year end.

If you want a relaxing and quiet stroll in nature, try and get there before 10am or go somewhere else.

Mass Bay Guides

Reviewed By DavetheFisher - Dalgety Bay, United Kingdom

I had an awesome time.
I spent the day hauling pollock, cod and redfish from 300 feet down and laughed the entire time of doing so.
Captain Greg and Jonathan were great company and great fun to be out with. The chat was first class and they gave as much or as little help as was required.
Some of the conversation may not have been to the taste of the most gentle of souls, and little sympathy was shown for the sea sick; you are out fishing with people who clearly love to fish- man up or don't book.
My day out with Mass Bay guides was one of the highlights of an excellent trip. If you want to catch fish, they will make sure you do.

BEAUTIFUL! The beach is great to walk along for shells and sea glass. Sidewalks to walk along the sea wall when the tide is up. Benches to sit and watch the sunrise or set.

Norris Reservation

Hike past a former mill pond, cross a wetlands boardwalk, and explore a forest of pine and oak on your way to a boathouse on the banks of the tidal North River.

Reviewed By jakegreenville - Milton, Massachusetts

This wonderful property is maintained by the Trustees of Reservations. There are well maintained woodland trails that pass scenic ponds and the North River. The walking is easy. You will need insect repellent. No sanitary facilities. The dog policy is prominently posted, but many owners ignore the requirement for a leash.

The most unusual water tower in America. As interesting as its first owner. This is a spot that should be seen to be understood. His wife toured Europe and saw the fashioning of water towers. Why not Scituate. Great photographic spot

Holly Hill Farm

Reviewed By cwhite7799 - Cohasset, Massachusetts

Holly Hill Farm has it all. It is an old historic farm that is still producing organic vegetables and other assorted flowers and baked goods (available for sale on the weekend days). Just as importantly it is a fantastic place to explore and bring the kids/dogs. The buildings are vintage 1700's, and there are tremendous trails to walk throughout the fields and forest. There are a multitude of animals to interact with, including goats, a donkey, horse, pony, chickens and a bunny - all of them are people oriented and happy to receive a scratch. Great place!

Paragon Carousel and Museum

The Paragon Carousel has been operating along the shores of beautiful Nantasket Beach for 90 years. Built in 1928 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, it is the last remaining attraction from the Paragon Park amusement park that closed in 1985. Kids of all ages will enjoy a ride on “the painted ponies”. Then move to the Paragon Park Museum next door to learn about the park’s founding in 1905 and its evolution from a Victorian era “exposition” to a late 20th century amusement park. Hear modern recordings of early 1900s songs about a trip to Paragon Park. Marvel at a scale model of the Giant Coaster and watch a “rider’s view” video (complete with screams!) of a front car trip on the classic wooden coaster (hands up!). See an original Kooky Kastle cart and the scale from George Kasian’s “Guess Your Weight” shack. And stop at The Restoration Studio to check on the progress of the latest Paragon Carousel horse being brought back to its original beauty.

They went all-out for Halloween! So many little "extras" that would make a child's eyes light up. And I notice they have restored more and more of the horses into really fine shape. Note: limited hours at this time of year (off season)
