The Lower Cape (Brewster, Harwich, Orleans, Chatham) is at the "elbow" of the Cape . Brewster is to the north and has Bay side beaches with large tidal flats. Orleans has gorgeous tidal flats as well. To the east, Orleans also has a long shoreline along the open Atlantic, as does Chatham. Harwich's shoreline is entirely on beautiful Nantucket Sound. Great harbors in Orleans, Chatham and Harwich provide for many views as well. Harwich and Chatham are easily accessed on Route 28. Harwich is also accessed from Exit 11 on Route 6. Brewster and Orleans are readily accessed along Route 6a or from Exits 11 and 12 from Route 6. Herring runs, grist mills, several lighthouses, and many conservation areas provide for views in addition to the ocean and harbor views. Shown in the photos above are Monomoy Wildlife Refuge, Stony Brook Grist Mill, Chatham Lighthouse, Nauset Beach, Bell's Neck, Chatham Harbor (several pictures), Wychmere Harbor, Jonathan Young Windmill, Nickerson State Park, Higgins Windmill, Stage Harbor Lighthouse , Cape Cod Rail Trail, Wing Trail, Sand Pond, Brewster General Store, Brook's Academy, and Pleasant Bay.
