The Chatham Fish Pier is one of the best spots to experience some vibrant local color while observing fishermen unload their catch. Head out on one of the many boat tours offered to see some playful seals and the stunning, ever-changing shoreline firsthand. Take to the sky on an air tour to get an even more unique view of this gorgeous area.
You don’t have to be a history buff to appreciate the Atwood House Museum, founded in 1923 by members of the Chatham Ladies’ Reading Club, but you probably will be by the time you leave. Expand your historical knowledge at the Marconi Maritime Center, an immersive celebration of the technological developments that took place on Cape Cod, and specifically Chatham, during the early 1900s.
Mom & Pops:
What’s a better “Mom and Pop” spot than a place called Mom and Pops? Mom and Pops Burgers on Main Street, owned by a couple with a storied history, is a delicious way to support local business. Stop in to find out how a West Coast girl met an East Coast boy and ended up starting a restaurant with him on Cape Cod.
In the summer, the Godfrey Windmill is open for tours on a regular schedule. This historic site recently underwent a restoration and is now fully functional, operating twice a year to grind corn as it originally did when it was built over 200 years ago.
