A Boston suburb of 20,000 residents, of whom about 17,000 are nouveau riche natives of Dorchester, South Boston, and West Roxbury.
Located on the South Shore, affectionately known as the Irish Riviera.
The town's nemesis is the neighboring blue collar, albeit increasingly yuppiefied town of Weymouth. Nearby Cohasset and Scituate are demographically similar, but do not have the "obnoxious reputation" of Hingham.
There are, indeed, many Hingham residents are decent, empathetic, and modest in demeanor.
The Derby Street Shoppes have finally brought upscale shopping to the South Shore. This plaza is home to the South Shore's first Whole Foods Market.
The four best things to come out of Hingham, in no particular order: Route 3, Route 3A, Route 53, and Route 228.
For those familiar with the British sitcom Keeping Up Appearances, Hingham has the highest-percentage of Irish-American Hyacinth Buckets in the country.
Money doesn't necessarily mean class. You can take the kid out of Southie, Savin Hill, Fields Corner, but you can't take the ___ out of the kid!
Hingham, living proof that one doesn't have to live in Texas to be a wealthy, vapid-minded philistine.
Hingham has a disproportionate number of Toyota Land Cruiser and Mercury Mountaineer SUVs, almost 100% of which have never been off-road. (Note: The parking lot of Derby Street Shoppes or the South Shore Plaza does not constitute "off-road" driving)
A Boston Globe columnist from neighboring Weymouth has, rightfully, mercilessly lambasted Hingham for its single-handed roadblocks in the rebuilding of the Greenbush MBTA Commuter Rail line. This columnist, as I have, has taken pains to state that there are many Hingham residents who are just as indignant at these petulant prima donnas as other residents of the South Shore.
There is a Commuter Boat line to Boston from the Hingham Shipyard. However, most of the parking is allocated to Hingham residents, at a discounted price! So the option for Hull, Cohasset, Weymouth, and Scituate residents commuting from the Hingham Shipyard is not always feasible.
Hingham, little more than West Roxbury with some harborfront views.
And, most puzzling of all, many Hingham residents mispronounce their town as "Higgim." Hardly anybody from outside Hingham mispronounces the name of that town.
rich white town in mass dominated by:
-soccer mom's wearing pink, yellow and lime green
-cops who have nothing better to do than find the best places to hide with their radar guns
-the boy's hockey team
-teenagers who buy shitty overpriced pot using their parents money
GO HINGHAM HARBORMEN!
... and harborwomen...
Hingham, a town on the South Shore of MA that is largely populated by hockey players, smoking hot girls, and irish catholics. Hingham's Crow Point Pizzeria is the local hot spot, everyone within a 20 mile radius knows that Crow Point is the best place to get Buffalo Chicken Calzone. The pride that the residents of Hingham have for their sports and reputation is intangible.... Famous NHL and Olympic hockey player Tony Amonte grew up in Hingham. Hingham is a town of champions and affluent people who will out-class even the finest in the country. Other rival towns such as Cohasset, Weymouth, Duxbury, and Scituate are simply blow-hards and are seen by Hingham residents as jealous and deprived of Hingham's great status.
"According to United States High School Hockey rankings, Hingham is ranked #4 in the state as well as #21 in the country out of a massive 2,000 ranked teams...."
"Hingham consideres people from weymouth SWEATEES, because they are seen as a bunch of low-lifes who have no pride of self-respect..."
A South Boston town that's creepishly obsessed with Urban Dictionary, which is why all of these definitions are extremely biased towards the town. The hockey boys think they're the shit, and so do basically all of the athletes since they have no other outstanding qualities, let alone intellect, to brag about. They pride themselves on their "class" and how the town is ranked 4th in the Northeast, well, North Andover, Wellesly, and Marblehead are 3rd 2nd and 1st. Their inflated egos and extreme hatred against the North is nothing to smile upon. It's a decent town in a nice location, yet definitely not worth all the remarks it is given.
Live in Hingham? Must be good at hockey then.
Hingham is a rich, and actually really pretty town. Some of the girls try to act cool and some boys try to act gangster. Hingham is richer than other towns so they act snobby sometimes but why is hingham the snobby town when other towns get cells and laptops in kindergarten. Hingham has a great school system. Y a some peoplee are jerks but overall pretty nice people and no creepers and weirdos. usually drug free threre are some pot heads. A good place to bring up ur kids cuzz its a good atmosphree
Hingham Shipyard, Derby Street Shops, Hingham Square, Hingham Harbor.
Pretty much the worst place ever.
Don't go to Hingham, you'll come out of there with no arms or legs.
"Hey, I'm going to Hingham tomorrow"
"Have fun on your suicide mission."
a white collar,99& causasian, stuck up, sad excuse for a town. there's nothing to do except the shitty shipyard and derby sts, unless you're a gay middle schooler then you hang downtown on fridays. in this town the people are all assholes. the girls are cliquey and rude ( and ugly ) and the guys play football and hockey and think they're the shit. all the girls are wanna be whores, though theyre too ugly to actually become whores.the moms all wear lulu lemon and pick their kids up from school in their Lexus'. the high school is hard as shit and the teachers are assholes. i am embarrassed to say i am from this town, but have to say that almost everyone hates living here. dont blame the surrounding towns for hating the town. I HATE IT MORE.

A suburb of Boston best described as:
