Start off with a tour of Cape Cod’s only microbrewery and learn how the beer is made at Cape Cod Beer. Tours are weekdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you miss the tour, do the $5 beer tasting which includes five three-ounce beers served in a keepsake tasting glass. Then, experience the crunch of the cape at the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory and see how these legendary chips are made. Free, self-guided tours can be arranged Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Spend the next day in Sandwich, the oldest town on Cape Cod. Eat bagels and pastries at Canterbury Cuisine before taking a tour of the Heritage Museums and Gardens. Highlights include a Norman Rockwell exhibit, vintage cars, and an antique carousel. A stop at the Ice Cream Sandwich Shop for 24 flavors of ice cream is a must. Finally, visit Plimoth Plantation and have lunch at Patuxet Café, which serves food inspired by Wampanoag and colonial English dishes of the 17th century.
