Things to Do



A few of our favorite spots on Chatham's Main Street:


  • Lighthouse Beach, Chatham - Gorgeous views (and very cold water); a no swim beach
  • Hardings and Ridgevale Beach - The place to go for a swim (warmer waters)
  • Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, Chatham - Great for walks (go at low tide)
  • Nauset Beach, Orleans- National Sea Shore
  • Race Point Beach, Ptown - A favorite spot on the very tip of the Cape

Nearby Towns and Day Trips

  • Hop on the ferry to Marthas Vineyard or Nantucket (there's a smaller ferry to Nantucket that leaves from the adjacent town of Harwich). Both can be done as daytrips, if you leave early enough. Book ferry tickets in advance.
  • Drive down to the Lower Cape and check out the beautiful towns of Wellfleet, Truro & Ptown. We're partial, but we think these towns are home to some of the best beaches and restaurants.
