Everyone travels differently. Some vacationers hit the most popular spots in town, reveling in crowds and occasional chaos just for the opportunity to say they had been there; other travelers prefer quiet vacations spent living like the locals and avoiding crowds at all cost. There are no rules on how to spend your vacation, but when you visit the spots written about in all of the Brewster MA guidebooks, you may be accompanied by the masses! While staying in a cozy Brewster cottage offered by New England Vacation Rentals, however, you can live like a local and explore the hidden gems you won’t find in any Brewster MA guidebook. Time to enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings!

Secret Paths that Lead to Paradise

The Brewster Historical Society Museum is a place that should be on your itinerary, but that definitely isn’t the hidden gem we are talking about. Instead, we direct you to the path outside the museum! Following this wooded trail leads you to one of the more scenic beaches on Cape Cod and to Namskaket Marsh, if you feel up to a hike.

Laurino’s Tavern, 3668 Main Street

Since you’re already in the area, a visit to Laurino’s Tavern is the perfect way to end your day. It’s not a tourist spot, but a place where the locals love to gather for a slice and a beer with other like-minded diners. Serving a mixture of seafood and Italian food and offering an extensive alcohol menu, the friendly atmosphere will make you feel comfortable and right at home. This is one of the must-haves in every Brewster MA guidebook!

The Old Higgins Farm Windmill, Drummer Boy Park

Every Cape Cod visitor has taken their annual Christmas card picture in front of a lighthouse, but how many have done so in front of an authentic 1795 windmill? After moving locations three times over the centuries, this historic windmill landed in its permanent resting place in 1975. If you’re visiting from July through September, it’s open Thursday through Saturday from 1-4, offering the perfect photo op for your annual card.
