With approximately 15,000 residents, Duxbury has many school-aged
children. The school system is a mix of public and private schools
from grades pre-K-12. Various organizations also offer educational
opportunities for cultural enrichment. At Duxbury Art Association and
the South Shore Conservatory, anyone can learn how to use a brush or
play an instrument. The Art Complex Museum is a small but beautiful
space that holds its own permanent collection, special exhibitions,
educational programs and lessons.
Boating is big in Duxbury, and there are several marinas and yacht
clubs to support the flow of vessels. Duxbury Bay Maritime School
offers programs and lessons, such as fishing, rowing and sailing, to
children ages 3 through 17.
The town’s main route is Washington Street, which is sprinkled with
hydrangeas, historic sea captains’ homes and shops. Not long ago,
Vogue Magazine touted Duxbury as “New England’s Best-Kept Secret”
for a summer seaside weekend. But we know what Vogue doesn’t – this
quaint town is best all year long.
