Some of NEVR’s prime locations are tucked away in the town of Harwich—a town which itself is also divided into a few different villages. One of these is West Harwich, Massachusetts. It’s right on the seaboard, running along the Nantucket Sound and stretching inward halfway to Highway 6.

Why Here?

Harwich boasts the small-town community style that New England is famous for, and which other parts of the country seldom manage to emulate. Local traditions include summer’s Arts and Crafts Festivals and September’s Cranberry Arts and Music Festival. The Cape Playhouse, a historic landmark, offers professional-grade live theatre. All of these are just a short drive from anywhere in West Harwich Cape Cod.

In particular, West Harwich, MA is right along the coast, making it the favorite spot for sea-lovers, who enjoy the ocean breeze wafting in. The ocean—like almost anything in the village—is practically in walking distance of any place else in the village. Other attractions that you can fit into your stroll include the Chase Library and the Harwich Historical Society. Both of these buildings are steeped in history and local culture, so they’re great ways to soak up the long history of this region. The latter also offers lectures and exhibits that are great for furthering your appreciation for the area—plus, they make great topics for “What I Did on My Summer Vacation” reports for students!

If you’re coming in July and August, you ought to check out the Musical Stroll Nights down in Harwich Port. On these evenings, local bands play in various locations across the port, letting you enjoy a serenaded summer stroll.
