The Best Places to Watch Fireworks on Cape Cod

The Best Places to Watch Fireworks on Cape Cod

From the parade in Chatham to a concert by the Barnstable Town Band, there’s plenty to do on Cape Cod for the Fourth of July! If you’re staying at Brewster By The Sea Inn for the holiday weekend, we highly recommend celebrating America’s birthday by watching these fireworks on Cape Cod:

Thursday, July 4th: Hyannis (25 minute drive)

Meander around Hyannis’ Main Street and take in all the village center has to offer – art galleries, restaurants, shops, and more – before heading to Aselton Park for the fireworks show at 9:00 p.m. If you head into town early enough, you might be lucky and grab a spot at one of the restaurants overlooking the water so you can enjoy the show over dinner and drinks!

Thursday, July 4th: Provincetown (52 minute drive)

Provincetown is a fishing and artists’ town located on the very tip of Cape Cod and the perfect place to celebrate any holiday, especially the Fourth of July. Visitors from all over the world gather on MacMillan Pier for the fireworks, which kick off at 8:45 p.m. There are endless dining options and shops to check out in Provincetown, so we recommend heading up early and taking time to explore one of our favorite Cape Cod towns!

Thursday, July 4th: Falmouth (56 minute drive)

Falmouth’s fireworks display was voted one of the best in the nation by Travel + Leisure Magazine, so it won’t disappoint! The town enacts road closures before the fireworks start, so plan to get there early.

Saturday, July 6th: Orleans (17 minute drive)

Rock Harbor is a bustling harbor on Cape Cod Bay in Orleans and offers one of the best sunsets on Cape Cod. Trees line the path of boats entering and exiting the harbor, making for a unique ocean view. Head to Rock Harbor on July 6th for the 8:45 p.m. fireworks show!

Aren’t coming to the Cape for the fourth? We still have rooms left in mid-July and August!

A pandemic escape!

Amy and her staff are incredible. The attention to detail is hands down the best. Given all that is going on in this Covid-19 world, we felt safe and comfortable. Check-in was contactless. Our room was perfect. The breakfasts were wonderful and loved the cookies in the afternoon. The icing on the cake was Sweet Pea, Amy's dog, an absolute love! Amy, thank you, we'll be back!

Outstanding getaway!

This was our second time staying at this lovely inn. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the grounds are both spacious and tranquil. There is even a pool which is an excellent way to cool off after a day exploring the nearby trails or bike path. The breakfasts are creative and delicious and very filling. Amy, the owner and innkeeper is wonderful. She takes great care of the property and is so welcoming to her guests. She is very gracious in helping with advice on what to do in the area and making dinner reservations. We were among her first guests as Massachusetts began to "open up" during the Covid 19 crisis. She took great care to assure that everything was done to make her guests safe and comfortable. We look forward to returning.

A very enjoyable and relaxing stay

We had another wonderful experience here at Brewster By The Sea.  Lovely walks on the Flats and enjoying the local food!  In spite of COVID, Amy & staff helped us feel SAFE and at home!
