Sandwich MA calls itself "the oldest town on the Cape" (incorporated 1639), and it is certainly historic.

Much of the vacation traffic to Cape Cod rushes past Sandwich (map) on the way to Hyannis or Provincetown, leaving the town to those who appreciate its quiet grace, beauty, history and charm.

Settled in 1637 and incorporated as a town in 1639, Sandwich is proud of its colonial history.

Sandwich holds its appeal both winter and summer, for although it has beaches, its antique stores and gracious old houses, some of which are now museums, also draw visitors. Visitors come here less for beaches than for old New England charm.

Among its lodging places are several historic inns, and some convenient modern hotels. More...

Other attractions are Dexter's Grist Mill, the Sandwich Glass Museum, Heritage Museums & Gardens, and, in summer, Circus Smirkus, a real treasure of a traveling youth circus with professional-quality performances. More...

Just don't abandon any ducks or geese there....
