The town's length is about 7 miles north-to-south; the width is about 3.5 miles east-to-west.
Weymouth is on the South Shore, fondly nicknamed the Irish Riviera.
IMO, one of the town's true gems is Grape Island, located in the southern part of Boston Harbor and within Weymouth's jurisdiction.
However, Weymouth, MA is quickly becoming a gentrified town. While it will never vie with nearby Cohasset, Hingham, Milton, or Norwell in overall demographics, the town is rapidly shedding its blue collar reputation.
I wouldn't be surprised if, in five-years time, many people talking about the "old neighborhood" will be referring to Brookline or Cambridge, not necessarily Dorchester, South Boston, or Quincy.
I am seeing more Subaru Outback, Audi Quattro, and Volvo Cross Country cars parked in even the most modest of Weymouth establishments.
Weymouth has traditionally been a "Chevy and Toyota" kind of town.
Although I am happy to see Weymouth progressing economically, I fear that many longtime residents, and first-time home buyers who traditionally consider Weymouth a "step-up" to more affluent communties, will be priced out of this town altogether.
What I've realized over my time spent in and around Boston is that Weymouth ain't Wellesley, it's not Newton and it sure as hell isn't Hingham. And that's a real good thing. Growing up in Weymouth, most of us didn't spend time on soft rolling lawns, private prestigious schools or in country club swimming pools. In fact, growing up we didnt have nanny's, we had parents. We didn't have trust funds, we had jobs. Only town on south shore where kids know how to earn their own money.
George Young was born and raised in N-Dub and all of Weymouth is damn fucking proud of it
Currently a mix of wealthy and "well off" residents.
Previously a tough working class town whose residents would knock you out if fucked with.
Theres 4 parts of Weymouth. North (N-Dub), Landing (Dub-L), East (E-Dub), and South (S-Dub).
The population of people in Weymouth is mainly Irish (Thank god), though lately there has been alot of motherfuckers moving here from Brockton, Dorchester, and Whitman (Random..). But you know what that means.. lots of blacks. Property value? Decreasing at a steady pace.
Yes, Weymouth is a piece of shit. But you know what? I am proud to be a Weymouth resident. I would be proud to raise my kids here. Though there are many pieces of shit in Weymouth, theres still kids like me who can say that but will beat the fuck out of anyone in the surround towns who say it. Or anyone for that matter. Want to know why? Weymouth produces hard motherfuckers who will work their ass off and back up anything we believe in. We learned this from the people who have previously grew up in Weymouth, our parents. We arnt a bunch of spoiled assholes, we work for what we have. If you are live in Weymouth, its a beautiful curse, but it pays off. We are better than any other surrounding town, seeing as we actually have character.
"I'm proud to be from Weymouth. It's ruined my life, literally, but I'm proud."
