Arts & Culture
Its a treasure in our backyard! You can walk to the museum, drive, or in the summer hitch a ride on the free jump on/off trolley that picks up in front of the Hoxie House. Stroll (or use handy golf cart service) among 100 acres of incredible gardens studded with various museums (summer of 2018 features the Indy 500 cars). I love bringing a picnic and letting the kids run wild in the Hidden Hollow (an award winning 2 acre outdoor discovery play area). Top off the day with a ride on the antique horse carousel!

The Hoxie House is just across the street from the carriage house. Upon entrance you are submerged in the daily life of a typical Sandwich resident living in the 17th century. The house is the oldest on the Cape and among the oldest in Massachusetts. The museum is only open in Summer and staffed by volunteers - their passion for the place alone is worth the $4 visit!

I highly suggest you go to the dexter grist mill on Shawme pond. They make fresh cornmeal and sell them on the spot. Also a great place to watch the swans swim around. Also a magical view of the pond. The artesian well next door offers crystal clear water. - Palmer 9yo

We love to hike Talbots Point. This reserve is maintained by the Thornton Burgess Society. For a chance of seeing the great horned owls high in the trees go at dusk! Easy enough for small children or long enough for a good cardio workout.

This is the other entrance to the game farm at Talbots Point. The hiking trails connect. However, this parking lot also offers access to Scorton Creek. We use this lot when tubing down the river from East Sandwich Beach. However, the river access point here is also great for crab hunting. Bring nets and scoop them up by the dozens!

This church is beautiful and charming but it is also famous! A photo of the church was used as a backdrop for Elvis Presley's 1960's album, "How Great Thou Art." You will see many people trying to get just the right angle to recreate the iconic album cover!

This is the studio owned by Michael Magyar, creator of the giant lighted sculptures which are on display during the holiday season mainly along Route 6A in Sandwich. If you are looking for a truly unique and beautiful gift (maybe as a wedding gift for someone who is getting married in the area) their handblown "ocean balls" in swirls of blue contain sand and shells from the area. They can even inscribe the glass at no extra charge with a gift note.

Great for colder months and rainy summer days. Shipwrecked in a nor’easter in 1717, the Whydah sank deep into Cape Cod waters, only to be discovered by intrepid diver Barry Clifford and his team, who have dove Cape Cod’s icy waters for years recovering artifacts from the Whydah, including cannon and pistols, navigational equipment. Fun and educational!
