More About Brewster
Quaint, quiet, and slow-paced, Brewster is one of the Cape’s most picturesque towns. Many of the beautiful old inns and charming restaurants were sea captains’ homes in the 18th and 19th centuries.
All of Brewster’s saltwater beaches are on Cape Cod Bay. At low tide, it’s possible to walk out a mile on the Brewster Flats.
Brewster is home to the Cape Museum of Natural History, which offers nature and marine exhibits, guided field walks, classes, and self-guided trails through 80 acres of marshland, forest, and ponds.
Nickerson Park is ideal for biking or picnics among more than 1,700 acres of tall pines, bike trails, and fresh-water ponds.
The Cape Cod Rail Trail runs through town along an abandoned railbed. Bikers pass by salt marshes, cranberry bogs, ponds, and Nickerson State Park.
