More About Scituate

Scituate, a seaside community located 25 miles southeast of Boston, was founded by settlers from the Plymouth Colony some time before 1634.

Scituate has long been the summer residence of Bostonians seeking relief from summer's heat. Many fine examples of early architecture can be found along its picturesque streets. There are miles of beautiful beaches and plenty of opportunities to enjoy water sports, including deep sea fishing and whale watching excursions. You'll also find nice shops and all kinds of dining experiences.

Scituate Lighthouse, built of granite in 1811, is worth a visit. It can be toured by contacting the Scituate Historical Society.

In addition to its close proximity to Boston, Scituate is less than 20 miles north of the historic town of Plymouth, with its popular attractions, Plymouth Rock and Plimoth Plantation.

Seven miles south of Scituate is the quiet beachside village of Humarock. Humarock Beach lies between the Atlantic Ocean and South River. Humarock is a quiet family friendly community with planned activities such as dances, bingo, and breakfasts throughout the summer.
