A "town that's technically a city" of approximately 55,000 residents in Norfolk County, Massachusetts, about 13 miles south-east of downtown Boston.

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.
A couple of years ago, a Boston Globe columnist who grew up in Weymouth stated that "Weymouth ain't Wellesley, it's not Weston, and it sure isn't Hingham. And that's a really good thing." That quote is on the Weymouth government web site, BTW.

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.

The power losing capitol of Massachusetts. Drinking Budweiser until you pass out under the Hingham bridge is one of Weymouth residents favorite things to do. If you're not drinking by noon on Saturday then you must not be in Weymouth. There's an abundant supply of wannabe rock stars who still think they're rocking out in their 40's and 50's even know the last gig they played was at a friends back yard party over 20 years ago. You all know who you are. There's no shortage of power pigs ready to sleep with anyone with Budweiser breath. Yup, Weymouth... the place to go if you plan on waking up in a dumpster.
buy weymouth mugs and t-shirts

Small town in Massachusetts whose northern most boarder is located within Boston Harbor. Considered to be on The South Shore

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.
Weymouth is a drinking town with a soccer problem.

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.

An ugly turd, who looks a bit like big foot, they usually have no friends and are extremely sweaty. Also a weymouth can be found either in a woodcraft room, or the west gate bridge.
You: "Did you see that Weymouth."
Friend: "Ye it gave me cancer."

A small, seaside town located in South West England.
The first 'Weymouth'.

That shit-hole in Massachusetts that everyone seems to be so fond of was named after it. <3
