The Town of Brewster is named after Elder William Brewster who was a pilgrim aboard the Mayflower. The scenic byway of Route 6A meanders through the town showing off many shops and stately old homes. Brewster’s public beaches are on the Cape Cod Bay and include: Crosby Landing, Linnell Landing, Ellis Landing, Point of Rocks Beach, Breakwater Beach, Saint’s Landing, Robbins Hill Beach, and Paines Creek Beach. The low tide on these bayside beaches is quite dramatic creating almost a mile of tidal flats and exposing beautiful views of sandbars, clam beds and tidal pools teeming with sea life. Brewster is also home to the Cape Cod Rail Trail, Nickerson State Park, Cod Museum of Natural History, the annual herring run and Stony Brook Grist Mill & Museum. Enjoy a free concert on Sunday evenings at Drummer Boy Park - home to Brewster’s Bandstand and Playground.
