Different Ways to Celebrate During Your Cape Cod Fourth of July Getaway
Take a Tour
One of the best ways to garner an appreciation of our country’s rich history is by visiting a museum! There are many historic sites and museums across the Cape. The Cape Cod Museum Trail is comprised of museums that highlight local history.
If you’re looking for a more all-encompassing history lesson, pay a visit to the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum. This museum gives guests an in-depth look at the U.S.’s 35th president’s life. Rediscover American history on your Cape Cod Fourth of July getaway!
Watch the Fireworks
The most iconic Fourth of July tradition is fireworks! Many community parks organize safe, legal fireworks shows. We know fireworks are beautiful and captivating, but keep in accordance with state fireworks regulations. Please note that it’s illegal for anyone without a professional license to set off fireworks in Massachusetts.
Worry not! There are plenty of fireworks shows on Cape Cod that ensure dazzling fireworks in a safe environment. While you can’t view fireworks from our inn, you can watch them in the distance from any Brewster beach. So, take a stroll from Candleberry Inn to Breakwater Beach, cozy up with a drink, and watch the Cape Cod Bay fireworks show from afar.
Indulge in American Cuisine
Traditional Fourth of July cuisine includes grilling out with hotdogs, hamburgers, and a variety of hearty sides. Switch up your Fourth of July eats on your Cape Cod getaway. Our seaside town is known for its seafood and some of Brewster’s best restaurants serve this type of fare.
We recommend Spinnaker for an upscale dining experience. It’s just an added bonus that this restaurant is only a 5-minute walk from our inn. Enjoy Brewter’s mild summertime temperatures as you stroll back to your cozy room at our inn, all the while reflecting on your delicious dinner.
For something more laid back, but equally as delicious, try JT’s Seafood Restaurant! This eatery is open seasonally and is a widely popular spot to dine in the summer months. The menu is expansive and features award-winning seafood as well as traditional American dishes like hamburgers and even barbeque!
