Cohasset

Welcome to Cohasset

Cohasset (7,500 pop.) is a beautiful coastal town with a rich history and spectacular views. Named by Coastal Magazine as one of the country’s “happiest” seaside towns (2012), it is located 25 miles southeast of Boston, on Massachusetts Bay. The vibrant town center (gourmet restaurants and specialty shops) lies around a quintessential New England village green, surrounded by historic buildings, homes, and churches. This primarily residential and very family friendly town hosts an annual Memorial Day Parade, Village Strawberry Festival, Jingle Bell Walk, and Village Fair, among other special events. Cohasset is frequently ranked among the best places to live in Massachusetts.
