Easy escape to a world away
At a glance
Out and about
While this pretty South Shore town is only 35 miles from Boston, it’s a
world away from the rush and roar of all things city. But Duxbury is by
no means sleepy. On the contrary, its village vibe, natural beauty and
many festivities keep locals engaged year-round, indoors or out. The
town’s 13.9 square miles of water (inlets, ponds, bogs and beach) is set
against Cape Cod Bay’s “Cranberry Coast,” so it’s no surprise Duxbury
has made a name for itself in the cranberry, oyster and shellfish
industries – all of which help support the local economy. That means
that you can expect to find the very best seafood in Duxbury.
Duxbury’s landscape lends itself to unending exploration. Popular
Duxbury Beach’s six miles of shoreline runs south from Marshfield
across Duxbury Bay on the west and Cape Cod Bay on the east. This
gentle curve of coastline can be reached with a quick drive or walk
across the spectacularly scenic Powder Point Bridge. For the nature
lovers, Duxbury Beach Reservation offers programs focused on
environmental issues, while science nerds can take an aquaculture tour
at Island Creek Oysters to witness the evolution of oysters from “seed
to spawn.”
