Brewster by the Bay
June 7, 2023
Watching Harry explore the many treasures of the shoreline at Brewster Beach was a highlight of my mini vacation to Cape Cod last week. Kiel and I stayed at the Ocean’s Edge Resort years ago and I remembered how incredible the beach there was, I think it might be my favorite in all of New England. The water is crystal clear and the coastline is stunning with wide sandy beaches (depending on the tide), grassy dunes, and a beautiful view of the Atlantic. I was really excited to create new memories here with my son who is at a really special age. We encountered so many horseshoe crabs, hermit crabs, and shellfish. We were very content to explore for hours on end with little consideration for the time.
This is not a sponsored post but I can’t say enough what a wonderful place it is to bring little ones if you are planning a trip to the Cape. We ended up hanging out here all day as there is a kitchen and bar conveniently steps away from the water for burgers, lobster rolls, etc. I also loved that the staff sets up an umbrella and chairs for guests and provides towels, and sand pails for kids. My least favorite part of any beach day is lugging all of my gear onto the beach. Here pretty much everything is provided for you which makes for a truly relaxing vacation.
Our room at the resort was a short walk way from the beach. It was a short trip so we didn’t get a chance to see everything but the resort has few dining options, gift shop, pool, tennis courts, and games on the lawn. We ended up eating on the beach one night and then headed into town to pick up a pizza to eat in our room another night.
The town was very charming. We stopped at the Brewster General store for souvenirs (established in 1866) and picked up muffins at the cutest bakery and gift shop, Hopkins House. I drove past a really picturesque bookstore and a good number of antique stores that were sadly closed when we decided to check out the area later in the day. I’m already planning my trip back for later this summer!
