The village of West Harwich, in Harwich, Massachusetts, has a modest population and a reputation for being a peaceful suburb community with friendly residents and welcoming vacation homes. It boasts a ton of beautiful green space for outdoor activities, and a number of quaint cafes for having a cup of coffee and a homemade treat.
Visitors to West Harwich can enjoy spending the day at Grey Neck Beach or Red River Beach, both of which are picturesque beaches with calm waves and plenty of shells and stones for collecting. They can also take a trip to the Cape Cod Lavender Farm where they can purchase an array of calming lavender-scented soaps and handmade items, the Sea Horse Farm for an afternoon of English-style horseback riding, or to the Cranberry Bogs where they can take a guided tour of the bogs and learn about the cranberry growing process.
Alternatively, guests can go on a boat tour of the Cape Cod area with Monomoy Island Excursions, where they might be lucky enough to get a glimpse of seals or whales. Shopping is another popular West Harwich activity, as the village is home to a number of cute consignment shops and mom and pop stores such as Harwich Antiques Center, Dr. Gravity’s Kite Shop, Second Glance Thrift Boutique, and The Potted Geranium.
Cape Cod is a prime location for vacation rentals. Many of the available Harwich and West Harwich vacation rentals are centrally located, while others sit on the outskirts of the city, offering more privacy. Visitors can book a 1,2,3, or 4 bedroom home beside the water or a single room in one of the area’s luxurious inns.
The best time to visit the area is during the summer. However, this time frame also means that the city is full of tourists, so if you prefer to have more space, consider visiting near the end of the summer.
Cape Cod and the rest of the areas along the Nantucket Sound know how to throw a great celebration. A few of the best include Strawberry Day, Fall for Harwich, Gardens Aglow, Ghost Town, and the Hoxie Halloween & Harvest. The Hoxie Halloween & Harvest celebration features food, live entertainment, a photo booth, kids games, pumpkin carving, a cider press, refreshments, and a live production of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.
For family activities, guests can make their way to downtown Harwich Port to spend the afternoon racing go karts at Bud’s Go Karts or take a whale watching tour with Freedom Offshore Adventures. They can also take a stroll through the Cross Rip Gallery, build sand castles on Earle Road Beach, or relax and read a good book at Brooks Free Library.
