2018 Annual Guide: Harwich
Pleasant Lake • West Harwich • East Harwich • Harwich Port • Harwich Center • North Harwich • South Harwich
Picturesque Saquatucket Harbor never lets us down, and drivers on busy Route 28 can’t help but slow down for this postcard view. For a historic backdrop, snap the kids at Brooks Academy Museum, which was a school back in the 1800s and early 1900s.
Just south of the Mid-Cape Highway between exits 10 and 11, Hawksnest State Park is a hidden jewel, and one worth seeking out for its quiet trails and gorgeous pond views. Thompson’s Field is another favorite, and a great place for dog walks.
Mom & Pops:
Pleasant Lake General Store is a great little stop along the Cape Cod Rail Trail if you are biking, but worth a drive along scenic Route 124 as well. Grab a sandwich and picnic at the pond. The Cape Cod Lavender Farm is a true family business, and well worth a visit—especially at harvest time in summer.
The Annual Toast of Harwich is being held April 27 at Wequassett Resort and Golf Club. Featuring fare from a variety of Harwich eateries, the gala will also include fine wines and a silent auction. In July and August, check out Port Summer Nights every Wednesday, with free music along Main Street in Harwich Port.
