Brewster Things to Do

  • Mansion, and sea views, and jewelry, OH...

    We went to the Crosby Mansion to check it and a jewelry sale out. Now, we all thought that they would be selling expensive estate jewelry. Wrong. It was costume jewelry; fun costume jewelry, at REALLY cheap prices. I must've looked as excited as I was because one of the women working the sale came over and handed me a basket. I was stoked.Now onto...

  • Walk the Flats

    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...

  • Drummer Boy Park

    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.

  • Beautiful Garden

    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

    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.

  • Paine's Creek Beach

    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,...

  • Cape Cod Natural History Museum

    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...

  • Antique shops at every turn in the...

    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.

Brewster Restaurants

  • Great Local Spot

    If you're looking for a good local spot for breakfast and/or lunch, you should check out The Brewster Coffee Shop. We popped in for lunch and it had a cozy diner feel with good (if not a bit over-zealous) service. I only say that because we were asked about 7 times how everything good. It was consistently good and never wavered! I got a veggie &...

  • Tacos, Burritos, y Tequila, OH MY!

    Guapo's is a typical vacation town food shack with great food. We stopped here for lunch and I was so happy that they had crunchy beef tacos on the menu - my favorites! What's even better is that they have a tequila bar by the outdoor seating. Don't worry, it was past noon.

  • Lobsters YUM!!

    We got lobsters, oysters, and shrimp here for our weekend at The Cape. We had the pre-cooked lobsters and oysters our first night and both were wonderful. One of the employees gave us recipe for the most amazing sauce to put on the oysters that we cooked on the grill. We went back the next day for more oysters so we could have them at Happy...

Brewster Shopping

  • Cape Cod's Best Farm Stand

    That's what the website says and who am I to argue? I've only had some of their baked goods which were lovely, so I'd love to go back and try a little of everything else. I'm very daring like that.

  • A Slice of Americana

    This could be a "Things to Do" tip as well. The Brewster General Store is a slice of American history and you can wander its aisles and two floors and enjoy it as an attraction without buying anything. Although I think that would be hard to do. I couldn't resist... Everything! Candy, souvenirs, antiques, hardware items, cookies, kitchen supplies,...

  • Our Go-To Brewster Store!

    Ferretti's has most of what you really need to enjoy your time in Brewster. They have a butcher section, pre-prepared food, delicious pies, wine, beer, and my personal favorite, Cape Cod Creamery ice-cream. If you can avoid driving over to a big supermarket, why wouldn't you?

Brewster Warnings and Dangers

    Gnat-ma-geddon!!!

    by garridogal Written Jul 4, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There were a lot of gnats on the beach on the first night that we went to check out the sunset. However, by walking up to the breakers it was windy enough there that they weren't a problem there. However, on the second night it wasn't really windy and there was not a spot on the beach that you could escape them! If you stopped moving it would feel like a full-on assault. We felt like we were still being attacked when we got back to the cottage. YIKES!!!

    Looks can be deceiving Help us!!

Brewster Off The Beaten Path

  • Oyster Farm

    It's not every day you encounter an oyster farm. With the low tide we were able to watch the oyster farmers at work. We were told that it takes 3 years for an oyster to grow.Just takes a minute to eat one up!

  • Paines Beach

    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...

    Favorite thing: Saw so many cute birdhouses on my last trip to Brewster. Some of these are in Dennis but I'm adding them to this tip to keep them all in one place.
