More About
Chatham, MA

About ChathamWith Nantucket Sound on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, Chatham is a fine starting place for the saltwater angler in search of bass, bluefish and snapper. If you're not looking to break a sweat on your vacay, an observation deck at Chatham Fish Pier, at Shore Road and Barcliff Avenue, offers the ideal vantage point to watch commercial fishing boats unload their catches. You might also catch a glimpse of Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge's resident seals. Chatham Light, which affords an excellent panorama of the Atlantic, is approximately 2 miles northeast off SR 28.

Visitor Centers

ShoppingWith boutiques, bookstores and pottery studios lining a 1-mile stretch of Main Street, window-shopping in Chatham's town center is a delight. Puritan Cape Cod , a small area chain with locations in Falmouth, Hyannis and Mashpee, opened its first sales outlet here in 1925. Today, brand-name leisurewear and dress clothing (think Hugo Boss, Kate Spade and Sperry) draw countless spendthrifts to its 20,000-square-foot Chatham store.

Quaint, tree-shaded Main Street also shelters Chatham Candy Manor , specializing in homemade fudge, and one of the state's last Ben Franklin general stores, chockablock with souvenirs, craft supplies, housewares and more.
