Great new brewery and taproom. They have beer tastings. This was a warehouse bought and started by a number of locals. They independently brew their own beer as part of a partnership. Good spot.

Thai food takeout. This is my favorite Thai food place in all of mass! It is flavorful and tasty and quick to grab to feed a large family. I like the chicken or shrimp paradise. It is a little pricey, but worth the cost in my opinion. The owner enjoys making fun of me, but I still eat there which says how good it is! :)

Seafood market/restaurant right on the pier. Seafood comes here right off the boat and is for sale cooked and you can sit or on ice to cook later. It usually has a line. It's great for a lobster roll or fried clams plate.

All locals and tourists seem to like Mary Lous. It is kind of sugary and sweet coffee, but everyone seems to enjoy it. They are a south shore of Massachusetts fixture. My sisters nag me in the morning until I do a run here for the family.

This is assuming you are spending a day on the Vineyard. Off the beaten path little fish market where you can order and sit on lobster crates right off the pier. It's a tiny shack, but has great and fresh seafood. I bought a hat here. It's one of my favorite for some reason.

Fresh breads and pastries. Soups and sandwiches. It is based in a quaint house with a porch. It small and unique. It is run by a religious group I believe. They have deep roots in plymouth and you can read about them at the below link if interested: https://twelvetribes.org/community/plymouth. I enjoy their food. It is a bit of a unique and secret spot.

Sightseeing
Visiting a cemetery on vacation may sound odd, but it's interesting because a lot of the original settlers are buried there. It also has panoramic views of plymouth which is why I like to walk up there.

This canal connects cape cod bay to buzzards bay. It has a bike path along the whole distance. Fun to take a bike ride or fish off for striper or blue fish. You see alot of folks fishing here at the mouth. Stay on the left size side on the scusset beach side. There is nice beach on the end near the jetty with some good swimming.

Great place to bring the family. It is a setup showing how the original plymouth plantation looked with animals, people in original dress, and housing. Many kids in Massachusetts take a field trip here when they are young for educational experience. They also have a Farmer's market on Thursday from 2-6:30 during the summer. Strongly recommended. They have music, food trucks, story hour for kids, petting zoo and of course the produce!

This beach is often rated one of the most beautiful in the world. It is pristine and naturally beautiful and you can feel it when you are walking around. The problem is that you have to deal with cape traffic and then park and take a bus to the beach area which is kind of time consuming. It is beautiful because they protect it so you have to deal with the regulations.
