Scituate

Scituate is a beautiful seacoast town located 25 miles south of Boston, Massachusetts. The name Scituate is derived from “satuit”, the Wampanoag term for cold brook, which refers to a brook that runs to the inner harbor of the town. The epicenter of the town, the harborfront, is home to boutique shops, restaurants, and small businesses including a cinema, grocery store, coffee shops, ice cream parlors, and a marina. Additional business districts include Greenbush and North Scituate Village. There are four elementary schools, a new middle school, and a high school all of which are supported by the newly-built library. The town honors its history by maintaining significant points of interest such as the Lighthouse, Lawson Tower and the Old Oaken Bucket home. Another well-known landmark is Minot Light from which the local catchphrase “1-4-3” (“I love you”) originated. The Greenbush commuter train has two stops in Scituate and can take you all the way to Boston in just under an hour. Scituate is surrounded by Cohasset, Norwell, Marshfield and the Atlantic Ocean. Scituate has 5 beautiful beaches, an active community and is an amazing coastal New England town.
