This is epic! Park at the small lot near the Moswetuset Hummock, the place where the colonists met with the Native American Sachem (or leader) way back in the 1600's. This place is largely undisturbed since that time! Head south along the beach to Merrymount Park where Capt Wollaston and set up shop after disagreeing with Standish and the boys. You can return the same way or cut through Norfolk Downs near the College then follow the Quincy Shore Drive back. A ton of history on this one, be prepared to take it all in. Enjoy!
