The South Shore region is largely a collection Boston suburban bedroom towns that share in Massachusetts colonial history. Most of the cities and towns were settled in the early 17th century and have historic buildings of that period.
Boston's Logan International Airport (BOS) is the closest to this area and has the most flights. Some travelers might use T.F. Green Airport (PVD) in Warwick, RI to avoid traffic congestion or get lower fares.
Massachusetts Route 3, the Pilgrim Highway, is a major highway serving the South Shore. Route 24 borders the west side of the region and is a major artery. Both 3 and 24 are accessible from Interstate 95, which borders the region to the north.
Seafood is a focus in these coastal towns and proximity to Boston permits a range of fresh ingredients to be used. Mostly likely you will always be no further than 15 miles from a well-trained top notch chef's restaurant.
