Wareham is situated at the head of Buzzards Bay and is considered the "Gateway to Cape Cod." Its early beginnings were that of a farming and ship building community in the 1700's.
All of the tourist amenities of Cape Cod are available in Wareham. The town has over 54 miles of coastline enhanced by beaches, estuaries, rivers and ponds, perfect for canoeing or kayaking. There are antique shops, art galleries, outlet shops, and gift shops. You can cruise the Cape Cod Canal or enjoy the paved paths along both shores of the canal, which are wonderful for walking, biking, skating or just sitting and watching the ships pass through.
Wareham offers plenty of dining experiences. The "Water Whizz" water park is a family favorite, and there is a beautiful public golf course called "Little Harbor." Wareham is a great destination for its fishing, swimming and sailing – or just relaxing – and its proximity to Cape Cod for day tripping.
