Allen Harbor - Harwich MA

Sometimes referred to simply as “The Port” by locals, Harwich Port is actually three harbors worth of fun. Home to the Saquatucket, Allen and Wychmere harbors, it’s easy to get out on the water here, with various boating tours available for those of all ages.

A popular spot for vacationers, Harwichport is home to both the private Allen Harbor Yacht Club and home to the Wychmere Beach Club. You’ll find tennis, docks and moorings at Allen Harbor, although the harbor’s primarily reserved for yachting. This location is said to be best for small craft due to its narrow entrance.

Wychmere Harbor, meanwhile, offers moorings for powerboats and sailboats. It also boasts a pier and a park for the enjoyment of locals and visitors.

Family-friendly entertainment is on tap all summer long with live music strolls in both Chatham and in Harwich Port. While the tradition has been a long-standing one in Harwich, the fun just spread to Chatham this summer season.

Dubbed Mondays on Main, the new Chatham addition brings musicians, bands and other types of live entertainment to Main Street. The Monday evening event stretches for eight weeks this summer, from locations including the Chatham Wine Bar to the rotary, and features a variety of themed nights designed to especially appeal to families.

Entertainers are stationed in courtyards, on lawns and on patios just off the main sidewalk to encourage visitors to enjoy the entire area. The idea is to give people a fun and unique way to

Affluent Harwich Port is no longer simply a celebrated location of residents and visitors, but is now getting top honors for its Main Street, nationwide. The village was just recognized for playing host to one of America’s best main streets.

According to Country Living magazine, the Harwich Port Main Street lands at number 21 on its list of the top 23 small town main streets in the entire nation. It’s the only Cape Cod town to make the list, and one of just a handful of locations in New England. The publication acknowledges it chose Harwich Port for everything from great food to vendors and live music.

The new ranking should come as no surprise, for the area was also declared the second ‘Happiest Seaside Town’ for 2016, as designated by Coastal

Saquatucket Harbor Harwichport MA

A series of improvements are planned for Saquatucket Harbor and now the proposal has recently gained momentum with unanimous approval from Harwich selectmen. Plans, which have been in the process for more than a year, include supplying a harborside café, boardwalk, improved pedestrian access and artisan vendor shacks to the area.

As well, a new 5,000 square foot structure would be used for the harbor department maintenance facility and well as for rentable office space. In total, the project would encompass seven-acres, more than two-acres of it acquired by the town last year in addition to a plan involving tearing down some structures along Route 28 for necessary parking, a passenger boat ticket booth, a garage and a workshop.

Plans are in the works to make improvements in the area of Saquatucket Harbor.  This popular Harwich Port is one of three active harbors in the town, popular for both recreational purposes and commercial use.  Located on the southern shore, the harbor provides floating boat docks and slips, boat lunching, parking and access to Nantucket Sound.

Because there are only a few good harbors located on the southern side of Cape Cod, slip space is at a premium.  The waiting list for slips at Saquatucket Harbor is usually between 12 to 15 years.  The Saquatucket Marina can currently accommodate sailboats, motorboats, a passenger ferry, charter fishing boats and a small fleet of commercial fishing boats.  The marina is open recreationally from May 1-November 15,

Imagine living in a quaint little village where you spend you spare time swimming, boating and simply enjoying some good, old-fashioned family fun.  That’s what you’ll find in the upscale village of Harwich Port.

This seaside village includes just 1,600 residents, and for locals, simply goes by the name, “The Port”.  One of the Town of Harwich’s seven villages, Harwich Port has been around for generations.  This is the area where fisherman and seamen once made their homes even before the American Revolution.  In fact, you’ll still find the old homes of sea captains scattered up and down the streets of The Port.  They’re hard to miss, noted for their beauty and original designs.

Along with being a quiet community, Harwich Port also offers great access to

To really experience a taste of life in New England, there is nothing like exploring the harbors of Harwich Port.  Located on the lower Cape, or rather the elbow of Cape Cod, this quaint Massachusetts community is one of seven villages in the town of Harwich. Harwich Port offers some of the best opportunities for outdoor recreation in the area.  Lounge along some of the warmest beaches of Cape Cod, cast a line or take to the water from one of the area’s three harbors.  All three offer their own unique and distinctive opportunities for residents to explore time and time again.
