The views at World’s End in Hingham, Mass., promise instant memories every step of the way.

Everywhere you look, the scenery acts like a greatest hits collection of the best of rural, coastal New England travel. The 251-acres feature tree-lined, well-manicured carriage paths leading to rocky shores, wide hillsides, open grassy lands, saltwater marshes, meadows, granite ledges, forest, and amazing panoramic water views of the Boston skyline only 15 miles away.

Designed by renowned landscaper Frederick Law Olmstead for a 1890s wealthy businessman looking to create a large subdivision (the homes were thankfully never built), The Trustees of Reservations has secured this beautiful property for the public to enjoy walking, horseback riding, cross country skiing and other passive/light recreation.

In the best sense, some of the scenery at World’s End almost looks unreal given its unique mix of land and sea. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the beauty of World’s End…
