Weekend in Duxbury: What to Do
Photographer: Michael Hanson

What to Do

Head to the beach or join one of the many small boat regattas in summer. The Duxbury Maritime School offers year-round sailing and crew opportunities.

The town has long been a sort of artsy escape for Bostonians, some of whom founded the Duxbury Art Association 95 years ago. It now shares space with the music conservatory at the Elephant Center for the Arts, where there’s always music, art workshops for kids and adults, and gallery shows to attend.
