Enjoy wonderful music on the Windmill Green, right here in Eastham every Monday evening throughout July and August. From 6:30-8:00pm. Bring your beach chairs, blankets, towels, snacks and refreshments and hang out on the green with your friends and family. A great time for all ages.
Doane Rock is located only minutes away from the Town Crier Motel by car or bike. Doane Rock is a glacial erratic on the grounds of the Cape Cod National Seashore. It is the largest exposed boulder on Cape Cod. Named after one of Eastham’s original settlers, John Doane. It stands 18 feet high and extends below the ground an estimated 12 feet. Parking is available. A great activity to enjoy with the kids, and there is also a trail you can walk leading to Coast Guard Beach, which goes over the marshlands, starting at Doane Rock.
If you are lucky enough to be staying at the Town Crier this week, there are some great events going on in and around town for you to enjoy. Including: Eastham Windmill Tours, Nauset lighthouse Tours, Library crafts for kids, Eastham Painters Guild Art Shows, Fish Fry at Orleans-Eastham Elks and more!
Don’t forget world famous Arnold’s Restaurant and mini golf is located right next door. We also offer an amazing breakfast for only $9 every morning right here at the Town Crier.
Today we celebrate the 4th of July. A day to remember who gave us our independence and to remember those who fought for it. America is such a great place, and what better way to celebrate than with parades and fireworks. We watched the Orleans fireworks from First Encounter Beach in Eastham the other night and boy were they spectacular.
Other events and activities going on around Eastham this week are: Eastham Painters Guild exhibits, Nauset Light Tours, Eastham Windmill Tours, Elks Fish and Chicken Fry, Summer concert on the Green and so much more.
