Cohasset is a fabulous place to spend a few days or a few months. While many love the area for the beach and harbor, there are outdoors recreational activities available year round!
World's End is a 250+ acre coastal landscape that is considered one of the crown-jewels of the Trustees of Reservations. Almost five miles of walking and hiking trails allow you to access the Fredrick Law Olmsted-designed grounds.
Insider Tip: World's End is a great spot for a picnic. Stop by the Fruit Center in Hingham Center and you can get anything you need!
Bassing Beach is 3/4 acre barrier island located in Cohasset Harbor. While it is only accessible via boat, it is a very popular spot for residents and visitors alike in the warmer months.
Insider Tip: Pick-up sandwiches-to-go at French Memories and enjoy lunch on an island just a hundred feet off of the "mainland."
The South Shore Music Circus
The South Shore Music Circus is one of the leading venues for music and theater in the region.
Cohasset Common, first organized in 1670, has been providing a space for respite and relaxation for 350 years. A short walk from the Samuel Bates House, the Common is an excellent spot to spend a sunny afternoon, play catch with the kids, or feed some ducks.
The Common is surrounded by a number of different churches and grand homes that act as some of the finest examples of historical architecture in the region.
Insider Tip: On Sunday evenings in the Summer, St. Stephens church features concerts using its 57-bell Carillon. This carillon, which is a musical instrument consisting of bells, is the largest in New England and the concert series attracts musicians from all over the world to perform. Grab a blanket and enjoy it on the common, or simply sit on one of the decks of the Samuel Bates House. You will not be disappointed!
