City/town information

Sandwich is a historic town on Cape Cod Bay. The downtown is small and friendly, full of shops and restaurants, all unique. Every step is a photograph, from the pond, the antique houses, the 1834 Town Hall, and the outside of the shops. All are a very short walk from our house. A twenty minute walk brings you to the beginning of the boardwalk across the marsh to the beach. Or walk twenty minutes to the marina, which is surrounded by lively restaurants and opens into the Cape Cod Canal.

This is a casual seafood spot that is very popular. Inside or outside dining. You order at the counter, and when your toy lobster buzzes, you pick up your order at the counter. Twenty-minute walk, but there are no streetlights for walking home, so you might want to drive.

This is a beautiful, transcendent walk across the broad marsh and waterways. Seabirds, great blue herons, the ospreys in their nest, and people having fun. Brings you to the beach and the view from Plymouth to Barnstable. It's a twenty-minute walk from our house to the start of the boardwalk. At high tide you can dive from the bridge.
