Things To Do
Head outdoors and spend an afternoon at the Mashpee River Reservation. A pristine shoreline, natural spawning areas, and excellent water quality make the Mashpee River one of Massachusetts’s best sources of sea-run brook trout. Paddle a kayak up the river, or leave your car in the Mashpee River Woodlands parking area on Quinaquisset Avenue and hike the two miles of trails that run through the property.thetrustees.org
The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Museum is the only museum devoted exclusively to Wampanoag history. Through a comprehensive collection of tools, baskets, weapons, and other artifacts, the museum chronicles the history of this rich culture from the Stone Age to the present.mashpeewampanoagtribe.com/museum
South Cape Beach is the most well known beach in Mashpee with white sands stretching for over a mile and newly constructed over-the-dune boardwalks, a small parking area, and restrooms. For freshwater swimming, fishing, and boating, Attaquin Park Beach, located at the end of Lake Avenue off Route 130 near Great Neck Road North, is a nice alternative to coastal Cape beaches, providing a view of the interconnecting Mashpee and Wakeby Ponds.
