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...more
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...more
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...more
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!more

Jake's is a typical seafood restaurant by the beach. It has a fun, casual and familiar feel to it. We were seated almost immediately on a busy Saturday night and lucked out by getting a table on the patio which was open to a beautiful sunset on the inner harbor.The service was great, the food was fresh and we had a really good meal here. I had the...more
Formerly only open on Friday and Saturday nights, now you can hang at Jo's Thursday thru Sunday evenings. It's like visiting your uncle's basement bar. It's been here for 50 years or more, run by the same couple. Jo is Josephine and she was a feisty lovely lady who went to join her husband, Jack, in the jazz club of the stars this past June. They are dearly remembered by anyone who was lucky enough to meet them.
The new owners were friends of Jo and Jack D'Arcy, they are keeping the walls of Jo's covered with nautical memorabilia from the past 50 years from coast guard badges to signs from ships. The juke box still plays Elvis and Aerosmith. And the bar still serves liquor and domestic beers such as Pabst Blue Ribbon and Michelob all at VERY low prices.
It's a neighborhood bar but all strangers are welcome to drop in.
Dress Code: Very Casual--you can wear anything
This is one of those typical beachside shops that sell t-shirts, shell jewelry, post-cards, souvenirs and kinda scary clothes! I went in to buy some batteries for my camera and to take a look at everything - especially the shell jewelry. I love seeing what new pastel colors they dye them!
Watch out! keep your dogs leashed and your small children near you if walking around any wooded areas or the beach at night here. the coyotes are on the prowl. My dog has been chased twice and my neighbor's dog was attacked. Two dogs have been killed so far.
I have no idea what this building was used for. It's right on the strip and obviously, old and uncared for. I felt the need to snap a picture of the ornate window and then one of the, well....not so ornate one! We were nosy and peeked into one of the ground level windows. Looks like it might have been used for some aspect of the park services at...more
I put this under adventure travel because romping around this 1775 Revolutionary War fort can be an adventure. The stairs are crumbling and coyotes lurk after dark, but from the top of the water tower (stairs in fine condition, open on summer weekends, call for other times in the year) it's a marvelous view of Boston Light, Graves Light and the...more

Nantasket Beach is gorgeous--a 4 mile long wide strip of sand and surf.
Fondest memory: I miss the view and the safe feeling of walking around the village any time of day or night. It's a small town just south of the big city of Boston.
