Taxi from Cohasset to Nantasket Beach?

We are invited to a wedding in Cohasset and want to know if there is taxi service available to Hull?

You can take a taxi anywhere if you are willing to pay he fare. However, I would expect this to be very expensive. I would suggest renting a car instead, as you'll need one anyway to get around Cohasset and probably get to and from there as well.

I disagree that this will be super expensive. Cohasset and Hull are neighboring towns, and Nantasket is in the part of Hull closest to Nantasket. I would guess that your fare would be about $15-20 each way. The roundtrip is probably cheaper than a one-day car rental. Presumably you are asking because you already have transportation to Cohasset.

Depending on distances, it should not be too expensive. May want to look into bus from Cohasset MBTA station to Nantasket. I know there is bus service from Hingham but not sure about Cohasset.

Hull and Cohasset are next to each other. It taks 10 minutes to drive from Nantasket Beach to Cohasset Village. At least the end of Nantasket near the Clarion Hotel.

Call the Clarion Hotel in Hull and ask them who they use for a taxi service.

With tip I would think no more than $35.00 one way.

I think Finsky is long gone -- if not -- he/she should take a taxi to Sandy Beach in Cohasset. It's a public beach, but because there is no parking other than for residents, few people are familiar with it. It's a great beach.

Of course, if the OP wants the old-time feel of the shops, restaurants, arcade and the carosel -- then Nantasket is the choice.

OP -- there is an Enterprise Rental car place on Route 3A in Cohasset -- they will pick you up. If you need wheels, this is your very best option. Then you can noodle around Cohasset and Hull to your heart's content. (Hit J. J.'s Dairy Hut, just up from the Enterprise shop at the end of your beach day.)

I just assumed Finsky wanted to knock back a few at the wedding, hence, inquiring about a cab.

I have been to sandy beach. Nice beach but a little rocky. When I have reason to be in that area, I usually grab a coffee and something at French Memory Bakery and have it at that beach.
