We are now in middle of summer and I am absolutely loving the feel of warm sunshine touching my skin. As Charles Dickens said, the sun brings not light alone, but new life, hope, and freshness to man. I couldn’t agree more. Summer is awesome as it usually means vacations, day trips and little excursions. Last weekend I decided to hang out in the town of Hingham which is literally a 8 minute drive from our house. Although it is only next door, visiting Hingham always feels like I am somewhere far away.

Hingham is a coastal town located on the Boston’s South Shore. What I love about the town is that it has so much character. With many beautiful antique homes and historic districts the town is a photographer’s dream and is absolutely gorgeous. The town also goes all out during the holidays. I happened to go near the 4th of July weekend and the whole place was pretty decked out.
The downtown area is super cute with coffee shops, boutiques, juice bars and restaurants. If you are looking for a vibrant city vibe you definitely will not find it in this town. This is the kind of town you go to if you want a relaxed and laid back environment. If you also love to be by the water there are so many nice areas to sit and enjoy the water views. I especially love grabbing a lavender coffee by Red Eye Coffee roasters and drinking it at the marina watching the birds.
It’s fair to say that Hingham is one of my favorite towns in Massachusetts as it has become my weekend hangout spot. It has so much to offer in terms of beauty, character and relaxation.
