Cohasset, Massachusetts: Rocky Beaches and New England Charm
Named for an Algonquin phrase that means “long rocky place,” the intimate hamlet of Cohasset certainly lives up to its name. Piles of large rocks line the sandy shores surrounding Cohasset Harbor, where tourists and locals come to gather eye-catching rocks and seashells and kayak in the shallow waters. As you stroll along the waterfront, keep an eye out for Minot’s Ledge Lighthouse. Built in 1851, the granite structure flashes a romantic 1-4-3 signal that is code for “I love you.”
Though much of Cohasset’s activity centers on the harbor, there’s plenty to do in old-fashioned Cohasset Village and in Scituate, another seaside town about 6 miles away. Fudge shops, bakeries, and art galleries lend a homey feel to these villages, and locals have transformed many of the centuries-old buildings into charming boutique shops and antique stores.
