Things to do

Atlantic Ave | Jerusalem Road

I always enjoy riding down the winding Atlantic Ave to Jerusalem Rd with the rocky shore of Atlantic Ocean on my right hand side. The homes and views are stunning, with some very old estates, and some modern architecture as well.

Also on Jerusalem Rd you will find:

Holly Hill Farm

Holly Hill Farm is the last working farm in Cohasset, This is a non profit organic farm that has a mission to educate.  

I live close by and have been involved in this farm during various events, lining up with the other garden lovers on day 1 of the summer garden organic plants sale.  Stop by and enjoy the offerings sold by local bakers and and growers’ freshly picked crops. Wander the premises and watch the children petting the ponies and learn a wide array of hands on farming experiences.

The farm stand is open year round. Walking tours are available monthly.
