Remember those who died.
back in the early 70's a bomb went off at Weymouth High School and it burned to the ground. The only thing left standing was the front wall. The town kept up the wall and added plaques to honor town residents who dies in battle in every war from the Revolutionary war right up through Vietnam. It's a nice gesture and everyone should stop by when passing through to remember for a moment those who died for Freedom.
Weymouth is right across the harbor from Boston. You have a clear view of the City Skyline on most days. Good lookouts are Great Hill and also Webb State Park. Whenever the City has fireworks, these locations are prime viewing areas.
grab a cup of coffee
My Hometown of 55,000 has more than 25 Dunkin Donuts. That should tell you something about how much we love our coffee. Despite the influx of DD, there is a small local chain called Mary Lou's News that serves a great collection of coffee's. My personal favorite is the San Francisco blend: a dark roast, but not bitter at all.
My favorite Mary Lou's location is on Route 18 in a historic building, the first gas station in the town. It has a funky vibe and very cute workers.
Abigail Adams House
Abigail Adams was the wife of John Adams, second President of the US, and the Mother of John Quincy Adams, 8th President of the US. She and John were quite a team and it's worth getting a book and reading up on their relationship. The house she was born in is still standing and is a nice look back to how folks lived in the 1700's
Weymouth has no shortage of monuments remembering the past battles and the local residents who died protecting the country. Stop and read up on them.
