Sandwich – A Daytripper’s Dream Destination!

A Scenic Lobster Village on Cape Cod 

The first town you come to once you cross the bridge onto Cape Cod, Sandwich is a charming coastal community that boasts miles of conservation land and a lovely shoreline – perfect for walking and lobster boat watching!    Sandwich is home to many lobster fishermen!

Drive to the Boardwalk and as you walk along this bridge, you’ll marvel at the sweeping vistas of marshes and creeks before you get to the beach.

Located at the Cape Cod Canal, Sandwich beckons visitors to share the lobster love!  Once you’ve toured the Sandwich Glass Museum and this historic town’s Grist Mill, make your way over to the Sandwich Marina for stunning views of the harbor and a 2 lb native lobster lunch complete with drawn butter and a bib!     Have more time in your day?   Travel along Route 6A, stop at the state fish hatchery and feed the trout.  Fun for the whole family!

Why we love it:  Sandwich and the Cape Cod Canal offers an amazing lobster roll picnic location!
