When is the last time you can remember laughing and being in a place that makes you feel like a kid again? Come to Eastham, a small town with less than 5,000 residents that stands out when it comes to beauty, friendliness and recreation. My family and I love living here and wake up each day to a list of places to explore and learn about.
The beaches are untouched, pristine and available to all, some of Eastham’s special places are:
Could it be that a tiny village only 30 miles from Boston has the best water views on the South Shore?
Marshfield Hills is the hill village that sits above the winding course of the North River. If you enter the Hills from Main Street and wind your way down to where the streets are named for the people who settled there, the views of salt marsh, tidal creeks, river, pond and ocean form a panorama of nature and community that is both rare and beautiful.
Cohasset Massachusetts is an historic former fishing village located on the shores of Massachusetts Bay approximately 20 miles south of Boston. The town was first discovered by Captain John Smith in 1614. It is a very scenic town with many great vistas across the water, often from high atop a granite outcropping. Perhaps that is why Cohasset derives its name from the Native American term, Conahasset, which means long, rocky place.
How many small towns in America can say they have been the centerfold of National Geographic magazine? Or how about the famous Red Sox legend, Ted Williams throwing out the first pitch on the 4th of July? Or the Discovery TV Channel filming here for Shark Week?
Chatham, MA can!
Heels, flats, clogs, or boots, Sole Desire carries popular name brand footwear that you can’t find anywhere else in town. They always have the latest styles and since I have large feet (great balance), they always have my size! They also sell cool hats and bags.
If you need a new outfit and don’t want to look like everyone else, head over to Cabbage Rose near Waite’s Wharf. The store owner is a lovely gal who gets her collection from many different vendors and she always seems to pick just the right amount of posh.
An affordable boutique beauty supply store that carries my favorite makeup line. They provide in-store consultations to make sure you’re getting the right products for your individual needs. They help enhance your inner beauty!
Located on lower Thames, this boutique truly has the most jaw dropping designed jewelry pieces I have ever seen. The owner, Kevin Duris, custom made a bracelet for my daughter around a particular shaped stone she had chosen. He also showcases other local artists’ wares in his store.
Wag Nation takes care of that four legged family member. Designer collars, gluten-free treats, comfy beds, and doggie life jackets will have your furry friend in style. The store mascot, Peter, will give you a nod from his bed as you enter the store.
Bath is an escape in every sense of the word. Life on Bath's coast offers a completely relaxing and soul-restoring environment. Take a stroll along three miles of white sand on Popham Beach, or on the black sand of Georgetown State Park.
Provincetown is a secluded coastal town with a diverse community situated at the tip of Cape Cod. With over 20 miles of coastal shoreline and some of Cape Cod's best beaches, Provincetown is a popular destination that especially draws younger crowds. The town boasts an artistic, fun and playful vibe.
