    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.

    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.

    Hank at Fiddlehead Farm

    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.

    Low Tide @ Paines Beach

    by marca Written Oct 15, 2009

    Paines Beach is a 'healthy walk' from the Isaiah Clark house. Make sure that you visit twice..once at high tide and then again at low tide. At low tide you can walk what seems like a mile over sandy mud flats out into the bay. Be prepared to roll up your pant legs and remove your shoes as you cross shallow riplets of water or pools of water trapping fish waiting for the tide to return.
