A favorite place to visit in the summer to eat an ice cream cone and watch the sunset.

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

Is Nut Island a decent place to see fourth of July firecrackers? Shouldn't something be said about the slope toward the finish of Hull? (The one with the old post)
