Shore Acres is a seaside neighborhood located northwest of the Sand Hills community in Scituate. Largely residential, Shore Acres boasts more full-time residents than its coastal neighbors and is a favorite of families because of the many ocean-related recreational activities. The area is distinguished by two ponds straddling each side of Egypt Road, favorites for pickup hockey games in the winter. The area comprises an eclectic mix of properties ranging from beachfront cottages to more traditional capes and colonials. Residents pride themselves on the tight-knit community and strong school system. Shore Acres sits west of the Egypt Beach neighborhood and south of Mann Hill Beach.
