Town of Sandwich

Town of Sandwich

The Town of Sandwich was incorporated in 1639 and is the oldest town on Cape Cod, together with Yarmouth.  It is desirable for those who want easy access to Boston.  There are many historic homes in Sandwich, including the Benjamin Nye Homestead on Old County Road (formerly known as Old King's Highway) and the Benjamin Holway House built in 1789 at 379 Route 6A.

Sandwich Glass Museum

Sandwich Glass Museum is a great place to stop for all ages.  The museum has a live glass blower, and exhibits detailing the creation and coloring of various types of rare glass.

Sandwich Board Walk

Just outside of town you can take a walk on the Sandwich boardwalkthat leads to the beach.  In the summer it is a hot spot for kids to jump off the boardwalk at high tide, kids can also hunt for crabs in the marsh at low tide


The Daniel Webster Inn & Spa has been offering lodging for over 300 years and is the perfect destination for a vacation, business gathering, wedding or just to relax and meet a friend for lunch or diner. The chef creates a fusion of regional and organic ingredients for a healthy, contemporary American Cuisine inspired by Cape Cod's bounty of fresh seafood. Don't forget to pamper yourself at the Beach Plum Spa

Looking for something for the whole family.  At Heritage Museum and Gardens there is something for everyone.  My mother has been coming for years just to see the grounds of 100 acres of the largest public garden in Southern New England. My daughter would love to ride the carousel, made by Charles Looff in 1908, the antique hand-carved carousel has been thrilling riders for a hundred years. And of course for the car guy (or person) there is an extensive collection of antique automobiles.

Now if you are like me I like a little more adventure.  At the Heritage Adventure Park there are 5 separate trails of varying levels of difficulty.  Each trail has zip lines but primarily consists of "bridges" between tree platforms made of rope, cable and wood configurations creating over 65 unique challenges.  Lets go have some fun.
