Hull (Massachusetts)

Hull is a town in Massachusetts in the South Shore region. The town is a series of islands connected by sandbars and causeways that comprise the Nantasket peninsula. The beaches are among the best in New England with fine gray sands.

Get in

Get around

Hull is a narrow peninsula and therefore has one major road in and out, Nantasket Ave. Hull is surrounded by two waterfronts, the "beach side" and "bay side". Most neighborhood streets run in a grid-like fashion leading to either the bay or beach side, and cross over Nantasket Ave which runs down the middle of the peninsula. One can travel Nantasket Ave. all the way to the tip of Hull, known as Hull Gut, which is where the local high school, ferry and windmill are located. A good view of Boston proper can be seen across the channel.

Go next

Boston or Cape Cod are easy next stops. For an excellent backroads daytrip to Plymouth, take Nantasket Ave southeast to follow the beach coast up towards Gunrock Beach onto Jerusalem Road. Jerusalem Road is a beautiful winding road that offers views of oceanfront mansions. Visit Cohasset village, a quaint New England style town. From there pick up the road 3A to take to Scituate and then Duxbury, more quaint New England villages. Another good place to go for shopping and restaurants would be the town of Hingham which is only 5 minutes away by car. Scenic 3A will lead you all the way to Plymouth. Cape Cod can be accessed in Plymouth by car on 3A or ferry at Plymouth Harbor.
