2018 Annual Guide: Brewster
Brewster • East Brewster • West Brewster
Paine’s Creek Beach is known for amazing sunsets, and the famed Brewster Flats at low tide make for great shots, especially during early morning. Just don’t get caught by the incoming tide coming back! Drummer Boy Park, on Route 6A heading west toward Dennis, is home to the picturesque and historic Higgins Farm Windmill, and as a bonus enjoys a view of Cape Cod Bay.
With over 800 acres crisscrossed with sandy cart paths and trails, the Punkhorn Parklands is a hidden jewel. The Eagle Point Trail rewards hikers with gorgeous views of Upper Mill Pond, and the Calf Field trails meander around smaller Calf Field Pond. Find trail maps on the town’s website.
Mom & Pops:
Historic and homey, The Brewster General Store is a great place to go for morning coffee and the newspaper any time of year. For something different, check out the Great Cape Cod Herb Shop, adjacent to Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters.
Brewster in Bloom is the quintessential spring festival in Brewster, where thousands of daffodils make a bright backdrop for the 5K Bloom Run, a Kids Fest, an arts and antiques excursion, a parade and more the first weekend in May. Come summer, catch weekly Sunday evening band concerts at the gazebo in Drummer Boy Park.
