Sandwich: Cape Cod's Gateway

Part of our continuing series on Cape Cod Towns
The town of Sandwich, settled in 1637, is the oldest town on Cape Cod.  Sandwich offers so many things to do that you could spend a week just in Sandwich and never run out of things to see, places to go, beaches, biking, food, and fun.  Sandwich has museums that are interesting for all ages (yes - even museums the kids will enjoy); the entrance to the Cape Cod Canal from the Cape Cod Bay starts here; and even the "birth place" and home of Peter Rabbit is in Sandwich.
