Hingham, MA

photo of World's End, Hingham, MAYou don't have to travel very far out of Boston to find some truly unspoiled areas. One example is World's End in Hingham, which is only about 10 miles south of the city as the crow flies, but has the look and feel of a coastal spot about as far away from civilization as you can get. World's End is a coastal conservation area made up of hills, fields, and woodlands, and was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, who also helped the Emerald Necklace in Boston and Central Park in New York come into being. The photo shown here, which was taken in May of 2006, shows just one of many beautiful tree-lined paths that wind through through the reservation.
