What’s not to love about a visit to Cape Cod? So many wonderful towns to visit, a lifestyle on the water, cooler temperatures, saltbox houses, homemade ice cream and beautiful weather. Recently we had the opportunity to visit the Cape in Harwich, Mass, just next door to Chatham. We spent a day shopping in Chatham on Main Street. Here’s a quick update on some fun things to do in Chatham during your visit.
MERMAIDS ON MAIN | 410 MAIN STREET | CHATHAM, MASSACHUSETTS 02633
Located almost to the end of Main Street, is a small gift shop called Mermaids on Main. A fantastic gift store carrying everything from tunics, earrings, jewelry, artwork, baby gifts, home decor and fragrances, all centered around mermaids or sea life. Cost effective and pretty, definitely worth a visit and walk further down the shopping district.
CHATHAM SQUIRE TAVERN | 487 MAIN STREET | CHATHAM, MA 02633
Chatham’s family restaurant with a multi-cultural menu and an entertaining cast that includes both the crew and the customers, the Chatham Squire is the place everyone looks for when they visit Chatham, MA, on Cape Cod. A side pub offers music, trivia and a great vibe. Worth a stop for Chowder and a fun cocktail.
YANKEE INGENUITY | 525 MAIN STREET |CHATHAM, MASSACHUSETTS 02633
Yankee Ingenuity is a gallery and gift shop on Cape Cod, in the beautiful seaside village of Chatham, about a half mile from the Atlantic Ocean.
Offering an exciting collection of gifts, jewelry, housewares, games, toys, books and art, featuring work by Cape Cod artists and artisans. Established in 1971, the gallery showcases the award-winning color landscape photography of Jon Vaughan, the author of Coastal Effects, a photographic tribute to Cape Cod.
Yankee Ingenuity is your source for useful and unique gifts. Check out their amazing selection of jewelry, sculpture, lamps, clocks, vases, whimsical folk art and lots of other cool stuff created by local, national and international artisans.
Chatham is a charming town worth the visit if even for the day to shop, and explore. Make it a priority and you will not be disappointed!
