Hull is a very beautiful town as it is a small little peninsula on the edge of Massachusetts. Half the town has a beautiful view of the local beach called Nantasket Beach, while the other side of town can enjoy the beautiful view of the bay. Hull has no diversity. For instance, over 97% of the population is white while .05% is asian and about 1% African American. Thee education system here is mostly on point. The citizens of the town is very sweet and kind, however because this is a very small town with little residents, rumors easily spread in a matter of seconds. Overall Hull is a decent town with decent unique qualities.

I was raised here. Fond of this town. It's small, 7 miles long. In the summer it's a resort. Takes about 20 minutes to get in or out because of the beach traffic. In the winter, it's quiet. If you don't love the ocean, don't live there. People who know the town, know where to live, where the flood areas are. Many commute to work. If you go into the next town, Hingham or into Quincey you can take the bus or commuter boat. The storms hit hard here, snow. You also have a coast guard here in town as well. And for historians, Fort Revere. Best close places to shop is Hingham, Norwell areas. Hull is a place to call "home". It has the beach/bay. Good for surfers, boaters, and fisherman. All else you do out of town.
Living in Hull for 30 years, I have seen so many improvements. What a great place to live. Hull is Peninsula 6 miles long with a 4 mile state beach. If you live at end near Boston Harbor, you can take the commuter boat to Boston or to Logan Airport. From the other end, you drive along the coast to get anywhere. There is public transportation.
