Gateway to the Cape Cod National Seashoreabout-eastham-cape-cod

Welcome to the Outer Cape where our rural village community will provide a seamless link between our unique attractions and all your needs throughout your visit. As you enjoy our long sandy ocean and bay beaches, miles of hiking and biking trails, shopping delights, dining for all tastes, and lodging accommodations to your style and expectations, we are confidant your stay will be a treasured memory.

The Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor Center is located in the heart of Eastham and offers miles of unspoiled shoreline and beaches, broad marshlands and deep forests, all begging you to visit. Park rangers offer daily-guided canoe trips, interpretive walks, and several constantly changing activities for the whole family.

Eastham is found on the Outer Cape, isolated from the commercial and suburban, yet a short drive to Hyannis Port, the Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket ferry service, whale watches and hundreds of other Cape Cod attractions. Eastham is home to Cape Cod’s oldest working windmill, built in the 1680s.

Along with several historic buildings, sites, museums and districts, Eastham is proud of its many National Register of Historic Places designations, and have listed in the Massachusetts Historic Register: the Old Town Center Historic District, Bridge Road Cemetery, and Cove Burying Ground, protecting our lineage.

Experience Eastham’s hospitality as you dine on local seafood, rent bikes for an outing, visit specialty shops, and absorb the history and natural wonders, play on the beaches, and retrace Henry David Thoreau’s footsteps.
