    Drummer Boy Park

    by garridogal Written Oct 26, 2014

    We stopped here because there was a craft fair going on. Who can resist one? Not me. Aside from the goodies I thought that Drummer Boy Park was very pretty with its windmill and lovely trees. Wouldn't mind coming back and chilling here for a while.

    Walk the Flats

    by garridogal Updated Oct 15, 2014

    Paine's Creek Beach is pretty unique in that when the tide is low, it's really low! To get to the ocean's edge you need to walk about 10 minutes each way to reach it. And that walk is a bit of journey. You wade through water, truck through muddy sand, and walk over wavy sand with scattered dead crabs and other sea life that are soon to become gull chow. On the first day we walked it there was a huge section of sand that was pink in color and felt kind of like silk under our feet. I'm imagining it was some sort of algae, but I can't say for sure. You will also walk through schools of little fish. So if that freaks you out (and you know there are some of you out there who feel this way), then maybe this isn't the activity for you. When you're about halfway to the water, it can be really interesting looking. Since I can be klutzy I didn't bring my camera or phone for fear that I might take a tumble while in the water, so sadly I can't show you how neat this looks. You'll just have to walk the walk for yourself!

    UPDATE: Went back, walked them again AND brought my camera with me!

    Beautiful Garden

    by garridogal Updated Aug 15, 2014

    Right next to Satucket Farms is a lovely garden just packed full of flowers and other plants. If you're lucky enough to see it on a brilliantly sunny day you can fully appreciate this slice of paradise. However, I'm willing to bet it's great even when it's cloudy out.

    Nature Walk

    by garridogal Updated Aug 15, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We walked on a lovely trail through the woods that led to a wooded cliff-side view of the water. Took about 10 minutes to get to the end of the trail and the view was great.

    This trail is right off Lower Road.

    The reward at the end of the trail Walk this way.... Wonder if anyone heard this? Fragrant honeysuckle A spot for contemplation, perhaps

    Paine's Creek Beach

    by garridogal Updated Jul 18, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were just down the street from it so it was visited a lot. This is not an average beach because it has many marshes (It must be very different during high-tide), inlets and a canal. There are kayaks parked a long it so obviously it's conducive to this sport.

    All in all, it's a beautiful spot that I personally found to be very photogenic. Plus, it's one of the best spots on the cape for sunset watching. I can attest to this.

    I'm not sure what the parking situation is, sorry!

    Low tide and marshes Good boy! A rockwall's a good place to hang out Kayak central And it goes on....

    Cape Cod Natural History Museum

    by tayloretc Updated Mar 24, 2010

    This is a really nice little museum – informative, with friendly staff who love what they’re doing. There are small exhibits on local wildlife and a little about Cape natural and human history. The museum’s mission is to introduce kids to the unique natural world of the Cape (and, by extension, everywhere else), and they do it well: things kids can touch, a lot of classroom space, a gorgeous viewing room overlooking the marsh and shore, and a small aquarium with local creatures. In the summer, they offer what look like exceptional programs for kids; there are a few for adults year round.

    The interpretive trail covers every kind of Cape landscape in less than 2 miles (Wing’s Island).

    Limited days and hours during the off season, but longer hours and 7 days a week from June 1 to September 30.

    More photos here.

    Antique shops at every turn in the road....

    by Pawtuxet Written Jul 21, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This was a wonderful antique shop featuring very early nautical and navigational pieces. A very knowledgeable dealer....The setting was so nice...beautiful property. The barn is in the back yard of his home. I could spend days and days poking around in these places. Brewster certainly has its fair share.

    Salt air, antique shops, artists' galleries, SUN !

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    All along this winding two lane road, you pass wonderful old homes, intrigueing antique shops, B&B's, cabins, marvelous gardens, big shady trees, artists' lofts/galleries, and interesting looking restaurants. It's a protected highway....preserved in the tradition of old Cape Cod.... salty artists' colony, where you find cranberry glass, nautical gifts, cosmos, sun flowers, and original arts and crafts.
    Pictured here is Fiddlehead Farm...garden antiques, cottage furniture, ornamental ironwork, vintage pottery and architectural elements. Greeting us in the yard...is Hank...the old Labrador Retriever. A sweet dog.
