Your best beach is:
Duxbury Beach, a half-mile wooden bridge away (with residents-only parking). It’s five miles of white sand with no big development
or retail, just one little beach shack selling burgers and sodas.
Your favorite place to eat could be: Winsor House, the watering hole where everyone goes for cocktails and fireside chats.
On the weekend you might: Head to the beach or join one of the many small boat regattas in summer. The Duxbury Bay Maritime School offers year-round sailing and crew opportunities. In winter, escape four hours north to New Hampshire or Vermont for skiing.
