Went to a wedding at Raffael's at Nantasket Beach which is part of the Nantasket Beach Resort & Spa and it was a lovely spot for it. The room has ocean facing windows that wrap around it so you see the beach and the water from every table. The colors of the room are mellow so you can infuse your theme colors easily and even if the power goes out (as it did for about half an hour during my friends' wedding) the room has some emergency lights and the staff will quickly bring out votives so that you and your guests can have an intimate candlelight dinner like we did!
Oh, and the food was yummy from the appetizers to the dinner and the staff were very friendly too! I would recommend this spot for anyone looking to host an event with a beautiful backdrop that's not too far from Boston!
Plus, it's a hotel too. Guests can stay overnight if necessary....
There is a great kayak rental hidden in Hull. We were welcomed and given instruction and all the gear. We got into the boats on a dock and slid into the water, no problem. The bay or Estuary as we were told is beautiful, calm and peaceful. There were birds to see and rock cliffs. I always went to the beach but this place on the other side was a hidden gem. We went for an hour but you can go longer. An easy, affordable safe adventure.
Everyone should enjoy or relive childhood by taking a ride on the carousel at Nantasket Beach. I'm told that the horses on it are all original and if that's true you can tell as some of them have cracks along their surface.
They play that fun and typical carnival type music and it's housed in a gazebo like structure which has openings all around it so you can get a pretty scenic view while riding!
Remember: You're only young once but you can be immature forever....
Although it was too cold to go into the water or lay on the beach the last time I was there, I have spent many a day laying on this beach, tanning and yes, even swimming occasionally! Generally, New Enland beach water is WAY too cold for my tastes but I'll never stop visiting beaches - any beaches!
on a hill, this park offers panoramic views of hull and all of boston harbor, as well as the city of boston in the distance. includes historic ramparts from wwII. free plays/music in the summer on weekends.

The ruined Fort Revere at the top of Telegraph Hill provides sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and the northern Massachusetts coast.
Go to the Hull Lifesaving Museum to hear tell of the area's chilling ghost stories of soldiers and sailors, wild tales of local lighthouses, spicy history of fraud and political corruption, and death-defying feats of rescue led by Capt. Joshua James in the 1800's.
Afterwards, walk the hills of The Village to see where these figures lived, died, and are buried.
Hull Gut looks like a narrow channel, but huge barges pass through this ripping deep water to and from the Atlantic to Quincy and Hingham Harbors.
Nantasket Beach at low tide is nearly a half mile wide, four miles long white expanse of hard-packed sand--perfect for many activities. Bring your dog Sept. 15-June 1st!
Take a ride back in time on the painted ponies of the historic Hull carosel--you'll feel a child again.
In the summer, ride from the strip to the Village with commentary and stops along the way for just a buck or two aboard the historic Hull trolley.
Summertime brings the open houses of resident artists to view their studios and work.
Wintertime plunges the Drowned Hogs, a fast-growing group of zany residents and friends, under the sea in frigid February weather to raise money for Wellspring, a local charity.
I can't remember when Chowder Fest is--the spring some time--find out--it's delish!
Summer brings a variety of free concerts with dancing by the beach and at the gazebo.
The views from Fort Revere Park, which sits on Telegraph Hill in Revere, are absolutely amazing. A beautiful spot to sit and relax, explore the Fort, or walk up to the top of the observation deck.
