Even though Labor Day weekend is at the tail end of our summer season, it is still the perfect time to visit Harwich, Massachusetts and see what Cape Cod is all about. With so much to do in Harwich, you might need a little help narrowing down your vacation itinerary. Here are five incredible Harwich activities to do to celebrate Labor Day:

Hit the Beaches

In Harwich, you can find everything from bustling public beaches to private and secretive hidden beaches that are perfect for some additional privacy. Since July and August are the busy months in Harwich, the crowds should be a little thinner and less hectic for a family getaway. Relax with the gentle waves of the ocean and the sun setting in the background.

Grab a Bite!

Cape Cod is full of delectable restaurants to dine at for a romantic evening or family fun. Enjoy a casual eatery just off the coast for lunch or visit a fine dining establishment. Labor Day weekend can be busy with tourists, so make sure you call ahead for a reservation for your lunch or dinner plans. We love the outdoor patios of Ember Pizza and Wings, The Port, Perks and the Mad Minnow. All have food and music.

Labor Day Road Race in Dennis

Each year the Annual Labor Day Road Race is held to showcase the top 5K racers in our area. Participants are awarded in multiple categories with an overall winner announced. Stretch out your legs and see how you stack up against our New England runners!

Truro Agriculture Fair

Take a short trip over to the Pamet River and enjoy a look at Cape Cod’s agriculture highlights with the Truro Agriculture Fair. This annual event is a great way to see the various healthy produce harvested in the area and how New England’s farmers continue to protect and respect the environment. Family friendly activities will include live music, a pie eating contest, bake shows, and tons of kids’ games.

Vineyard Artisan Festival

Another great local event is the Vineyard Artisan Festival, an annual celebration to support the local arts of Cape Cod. You will enjoy delicious seafood, live music, and all kinds of kids’ activities like hay rides and more. Entry is free, so bring the whole family!
