Great New England Summer Destinations – South Coast of Massachusetts

Now that spring is here, warm sunny days on the water are getting closer, and we can’t wait. We asked the brokers at LandVest about their favorite coastal spots in New England.

The South Coast

South Coast Massachusetts : Cohasset

The communities of the South Coast are characterized by natural beauty, small town character, and historical importance. Only an hour’s drive from Boston, the South Coast boasts wonderful beaches, fishing, boating and golf courses. Buzzards Bay is well-known for its amazing sailing where a consistent wind blows all summer and the scenic shoreline provides numerous places to explore.

“I have been fortunate enough to work at LandVest along the Massachusetts South Coast for over 10 years, and it is an area rich in history, culture, and some of the most beautiful scenery Massachusetts has to offer. Through our work contacts, we are consistently lucky enough to connect people to the region – whether they are looking for a thriving local arts and farm-to-table agricultural scene, white sandy beaches, or quiet recreational pursuits away from headaches of Cape traffic and ferries to the Islands, the area offers an impressive array of options and rewarding hours with family and friends.”

– Terry Boyle, Regional Director, South Coast
