Welcome to Duxbury
This coastal gem once thrived during the shipping building era — it is now a key designation for sailing and boating. Duxbury is steep in history, wealth and traditions. Undoubtedly, Duxbury's most prized attraction is beautiful Duxbury Beach, an environmental asset that supports an active shellfish industry and large-scale conservation efforts. The public enjoy drive-on beach access where families delight in tailgating, recreational activities, and evening s’mores. Duxbury Beach is also the backdrop to many town events including the annual Labor Day bonfire and many more.
Despite a smaller commercial presence, Duxbury is home to many fantastic, locally owned restaurants including the Winsor House, The Anchor, Oysterman, and Sun Tavern. Locals are always tempted to order The Plover sandwich at The Anchor (insider joke!). During the summer months, people come from far and wide to sample the best ice cream you’ve ever tasted at Far Far’s Ice Cream Shop.
Families often choose to move to Duxbury for the top-rated public school system. There are a wide range of private preschools right in town including Blue River Montessori, Berrybrook, and Elements Montessori — to name a few. Yet it’s Duxbury’s natural settings that truly set it apart from other South Shore communities. Not only is Duxbury home to a beautiful beach, it also protects Duxbury Woods — 150 unspoiled, natural acres of walking paths and exquisite scenery. For those seeking to live in a town that prides itself on its natural landscape, Duxbury may be the choice for you.
