Default Boston Harbor/South Shore

I am new to boating out of Weymouth, only my second season. What are some cool places to tie up for the day or restaurants to go to?

We have been to Jakes in Hull for food. Great seafood.
We usually just end up at Peddocks or Spectacle.
We have done Marblehead for the day and Plymouth for the weekend.

What else is out there? We are looking to explore more this year.

If you look at the thread about World's End some people mentioned other places that you can anchor and spend some time. Bay Pointe (Marine Max now) used to have dock and dine and last year that was non-existent. Marina Bay offered it last year, I don't know the specifics about it this year. You've done Marblehead, Salem Harbor is just a ways in from there. Pickering Wharf normally has availability for dining. There are a few restaurants there including Finz. I haven't looked into what in Boston is available this year. Pier 6 across from Charlestown Marina offers dining/docking. Legal Sea does as well at $20/hr to dock. Rose Wharf used to offer deals, but I haven't seen anything lately. I also haven't looked too hard with things not being open. Hingham Shipyard is a crapshoot whether they'll let you dock or not. There aren't a ton of transient slips available. Welcome to the area!

George's Island is the most developed, with a snack bar, restrooms, etc. Good to see Fort Warren at least once.
If the wind/waves are coming from the northeast, we'll go to Rainsford.
Lovell's has a nice beach and isn't crowded. People sometimes camp there as they have campsites and outhouses.
Grape is worth exploring at least once.
Bumpkin is small, and my wife got poison ivy.
World's End was perfect for rough days where you wanted dead calm and nice place to swim, but they pretty much closed it off to everyone except residents of hull and hingham recently.
You can always go into the inner harbor and have lunch at the Barking Crab.
For North Shore, Wingaersheek is probably still our favorite, but it was easier to get to when we boated out of Danversport Yacht club. It's a hike from East Boston where we are now.

you should’ve seen it last weekend - complete zoo...

Provincetown is a great day or overnight trip. Just make sure to plan your return based on sea conditions.

I think that some of the places we used to go to get away from the World's End crowd are going to be busier this summer with the restrictions on anchoring at WE. We used to go to the Back River because it was quiet, but over the last year it's gotten more popular and more crowded.

I would call or check before heading in because of this virus crap.
I would guess most of them are shut down.

It's "Local 02045" at the Sunset Marina. Transient is for a fee.
