A Cape Cod Weekend Getaway Destination: Chatham
Escaping for a Cape Cod Weekend Getaway is always a treat for families and couples alike. The region is rich in beauty, splendor, endless activities, shopping, and world-class dining.
But if you’re looking for something really exquisite to see and do on Cape Cod – check out Chatham.
One stroll through this charming seaside town and you’ll realize that Chatham is, indeed, locked in time.
Centuries ago, the village was primarily concerned with shipbuilding and whaling. Today, it’s an idyllic out-of-the-way place for families and love birds alike to summer – either in their own cottages or in small inns and Cape Cod hotels.
Many lovely colonial homes and traditional Cape Cod beach homes with exteriors of weathered cedar shingles remain. And Chatham is surrounded on three sides by Nantucket Sound, Pleasant Bay, and the Atlantic, so you can enjoy salty air and great vistas.
If you come in summer don’t miss the band concerts, a wonderful Victorian tradition that the town still maintains. And, don’t forget to visit South Beach – which is the place to see and be seen during the summer on Cape Cod. Watched over by the Chatham Lighthouse, South Beach is extremely popular and is always bustling with activity. You’ll find everyone there – from families to solo sunbathers. But don’t worry. The crowds never fill the beach; there is plenty of room for everyone.
