Nut Island is one of the Boston Harbor Islands, but today you can drive and park on the island. One of my favorite places to head in the summer to eat an ice cream cone and watch the sunset. There's great views of the bay, other islands, and downtown Boston. A short paved walking trail wraps around the island and connects to a longer sidewalk that follows Hough's Neck towards Quincy. Nut Island is also the home of the eponymous treatment plant, but it doesn't smell. A long pier sticks out into the water where you'll usually see plenty of families and others fishing. The MBTA also comes out here!

Plan B:

The Braintree mall is close by

Where to Eat Nearby:

There are many eateries and shops in Quincy Center

One of the most beautiful memory in Nut Island during summer is to eat an ice cream cone and watch the sunset. There are lot more to enjoy there for the children and the entry fee was also free. I want to know more updates regarding this place. new flats in kadavanthra
