A classic Cape ice-cream shop, also serving seafood and burgers. I recommend the ice cream, not so much the food.

Sightseeing

Covering about 28 miles of the old Cape Cod railroad lines, this is the perfect place to bike, walk, or jog. There are many places where you can jump on, most with free parking. Wind your way through neighborhoods, ponds, cranberry bogs, all without having to worry about cars.

A wonderful place to wile away an hour or two, the store dates to the mid-nineteenth century and looks and feels like an old- fashioned general store. Be sure to check out the upstairs as well.

Just down the road, this public beach was named for my great-grandfather who came to the area in the 1850's. Go at low tide and you can walk out on the flats for over a mile -- send longest tidal flats in the world.

What is more iconic for a summer vacation than a round of mini-golf (aka Putt-Putt)? You can drive over to West Yarmouth (about 15-20 minutes) for one of those mega-mini-golf places, or go a mile away to this hidden gem for about half the cost.

Everything Else

Another nice option for bike-riding or walking that is closer but less extensive than the Rail Trail is the Brewster Cemetery. It can be reached by the road either via Lower Road, or by walking down the little, one-lane road called Byfield Ctwy that starts at the end of our driveway. Some of the graves in this cemetery go back to the early 19th century, especially down near Lower Rd. But it’s a very pleasant place to ride a bike, push a stroller, or simply walk, without any cars.
