Onset is situated on one of Buzzards Bay's picturesque harbors. This tiny (population less than 1,500) town boasts beautiful Victorian buildings and water view dining. Two miles of beaches and two golf courses are nearby. Relax on a harborside bench and watch the boats sail by. At the town pier, Cape Cod Canal cruises, whale watching, fishing charters, and kayaking may be arranged.
Onset Village offers many activities throughout the year such as free outdoor movies, blues festivals, plays, fireworks, and Illumination Night in an unspoiled setting. "Tour the Historic Victorian Village of Onset" provides a detailed map and description of historic sites, which will lead you on your own walking tour and provide you with a history of many of the spectacular Victorian homes.
