A quiet life in a charming seaside community situated on the northwest corner of Cape Cod awaits all who live in Sandwich homes. About 22,000 people live in Sandwich, which was incorporated in 1693. There is tons of history here, as well as natural beauty, activities, and community pride. The size of the town is great because it is big enough to have everything that you may need, but small enough to be close knit and quiet.
If you’re new to Sandwich homes, check out the museums, sights, and landmarks to get acquainted with local history. Spend some time at the Heritage Museums and Gardens. View both the art and history museums and then explore more than 70 acres of gardens. Watch glass blowing demonstrations and view some very interesting exhibits at the Sandwich Glass Museum. Take a tour of Hoxie House, built in 1637 and likely the oldest house on Cape Cod and check out Sandwich Town Hall, Wing Fort House, and Dexter’s Grist Mill.
Outdoor adventures also await those who live in Sandwich real estate. A good place to start is the Cape Cod Canal Visitors Center. Find interesting exhibits and talk to the staff to plan more adventures. Take a stroll on the boardwalk and spend time at the town beach. Also check out Green Briar Nature Center and Jam Kitchen, Scusset Beach State Reservation, Shawme-Crowell State Forest, Sandwich Hollows Golf Club, and many more outdoor destinations. Activities such as stand-up paddle boarding, guided tours on the water, and ziplining are also available.
There is much to do here and a strong sense of community and safety. There are community clean up days, lots going on at the Sand Hill School Community Center, and youth programs. Sandwich Public Schools do a great job educating the youth in the area and the public library offers many programs for residents of all ages. Come for the summer or stay year round and enjoy the hospitality of Sandwich.
