Welcome to Scituate
Scituate has long been known, along with Marshfield, as the “Irish Riviera”, because it’s where many Boston residents, including famous Boston Mayor James Michael Curley, spend their summers. But Scituate Harbor is also very much a working fishing port. The sea has always been an integral part of the town’s history – their High School teams are the Sailors. Scituate has different villages with unusual names – Egypt, Greenbush, Humarock, The Cliffs (First, Second, Third), Minot, Peggotty. Much of the life of the town is centered around the beaches. The Harbor, as it’s known, is the center of commercial activity. Shops, supermarkets, restaurants, movies, you name it. Scituate has an active restaurant scene, with something for every palate and wallet. The highlight of the summer is the 3-day festival known as Heritage Days, a carnival/celebration that draws people back home.
