Hamilton is beautiful horse farm land, is within 20 minutes of 4-5 different beaches and is quiet and peaceful, yet within a 45-50 minute drive from downtown Boston. A perfect living and vacation spot all year round!

Hamilton is a genuine community! People here help each other and are always willing to provide other with helpful advice and tip on how to navigate the town better.
I love Hamilton. The schools are great and there is an awesome community theatre. There is also a great veterinarian’s office and lots of great restaurants and parks and hiking trails.
