Feed the Fishes
There is a chance that at some point during your escape to the Cape, you are going to find yourself at the business end of a fishing pole, catching your dinner for the night, so maybe by feeding the fish at the Sandwich Fish Hatchery, you will create a good karma? Stocked regularly with a large variety of fish (including Brook, Rainbow, and Tiger Trout) and located at 164 MA-6A, guests can tour the facility and be charmed by the rush of fish swimming toward all who feed them!

Take a Hike!
There is so much to do here in Sandwich, you may overlook one of the most fun ways to explore! Hiking along the trails that cross town is a fantastic way to get up close and personal with the countryside and the wildlife that make it their home. The Maple Swamp Conservation Area offers a challenging trail system that leads hikers through some of the most beautiful landscapes you will ever witness, and the hills add to the experience, especially since Cape Cod is mostly flat. The Sam Nye Hill Lookout is a wood platform built at the top of the highest point in the area providing views you will never forget and the pictures you take from there will definitely be frame worthy!
Now’s the Time to Fish
Your time spent at the Sandwich Hatchery feeding the fish was fun, but everyone knows that the best times are spent at the other end of the pole.
