Discover Coastal Dream Towns
Preppy and quaint
Your view is:A picture-perfect Colonial-scape of historic ship captains’ homes, complete with hydrangeas and well-kept yards. With most of the ocean frontage zoned residential, you’ll be looking at beachside homes rather than open water, unless you can afford to live in one yourself.
Your Main Street has: A strip of stately Colonial homes on Washington Street, with a strong dose of Americana on holidays. Hangouts include French Memories bakery and locally favored pubs The Milepost Restaurant & Tavern and the Sun Tavern. Perhaps the best part is hidden Shipyard Lane Beach, which sits off Washington Street and makes for a great midday lunch escape to watch the oystermen.
