Working in Hingham
Hingham checks all of the boxes of the “perfect town” on paper. It’s safe. The school system is great. It’s convenient to Boston. It has many beautiful parks. However, I’ve lived here 3+ years and hate it. We are moving out of state. This town is filled with pretentious house wives driving oversized SUVs to cart their kids around and eat at underwhelming and overpriced food establishments. The taxes are outrageous. The people are not friendly. My husband and I tried to become part of the community by going to church and the newcomers club. If you don’t make a certain income or have kids, forget it. You’re a nobody. All of the men work in finance in downtown Boston and all dress the same. This is best on display on the commuter ferry. There is 0 diversity and not much to do. No live music. No art/culture. It doesn’t even have a beach...just a few marinas. I wish I had read previous reviews before moving here because I would have stayed away.
Hingham is an affluent town south of Boston. Amazing public school system, very welcoming community, and lots of families who take pride in the town. There are many community events that draw people together, nearby beaches and boating, Wompatuck State Park for walking, biking and hiking, and lots of restaurants to choose from. Great place to raise a family!
Lived in Hingham throughout my childhood. I have lived in three different parts of the town and it’s been great just about everywhere. It’s a great town to grow up in. Very safe, good place for a fun childhood. Schools are great, but Highschool is definitely very rigorous and demanding. Very average wealthy suburb. Definitely could use some diversity though.
