Welcome to Hingham
Hingham, with its 26 miles of coastline, is a gateway to Boston, with plenty of commuter options. Travel by car, bus, Greenbush Commuter Rail, or take full advantage of that seaside location and hop the MBTA commuter ferry and cross Boston Harbor! The ferry terminal, where you can also catch a ride to Logan Airport or take a tour of Boston Harbor, is at the lively Hingham Shipyard. The Shipyard, a lifestyle center, includes shopping, fine dining, a marina, hundreds of rentals, and both low-rise and townhome style condominiums. While the Shipyard represents more contemporary living, the nearby neighborhoods of Bradley Woods and Bradley Park are more traditional family neighborhoods. High on a hill, Bradley Park has sweeping views of the water.
Hingham has been a seaside destination for centuries - the famous Victorian-era Melville Gardens amusement park was in today’s close-knit Crow Point neighborhood. Today, Samuel Downer’s playground hosts the Hingham Yacht Club. Families in Crow Point gather at North Beach on lazy summer days. Nearby, the large old homes in the Ship, Cottage, and Otis Street neighborhoods overlook beautiful Hingham Harbor, the center of summer seaside activity. The homes in World’s End have views of both Hingham and Hull, and can take advantage of the 251-acres of Olmstead-designed walking paths at the tip of the peninsula.
