The Town of Yarmouth for Couples

The Town of Yarmouth really does offer a little bit of everything for the visiting couple. On the one hand, certain parts of it are probably the Cape's most overtly commercialized areas that sometimes draw criticism from both residents and visitors alike for being a little too commercial. and while it's true that a long stretch of Route 28 which runs through West Yarmouth probably isn’t what you’d expect from a typical Cape Cod town, the Yarmouth Port side of town does retain much more of that olde Cape Cod charm, and shouldn't be overlooked.

The three villages that make up Yarmouth are West Yarmouth, Yarmouth Port and South Yarmouth. Yarmouth Port, on the north side of Route 6A, is quiet and dotted with quaint B&B’s restaurants and unique retail shops. Lovely historic homes and centuries old trees line Route 6A while marshes, bogs and conversation trails back up toward the ocean.

There is plenty to see in this area - try popping into Hallet’s Store, which has been owned and operated by the same family since 1889. Originally a drug store, it now sells a variety of goods and has a small restaurant and soda fountain where you can satisfy your thirst for nostalgia by sipping a milkshake (frappe).

We love to eat at Inaho, a Japanese restaurant, just a few doors down from Hallet’s. They have wonderful sashimi, tempura and teriyakis all served in a relaxing environment.

The south side of Yarmouth runs along Route 28 and is bustling with motels, seafood restaurants, bars, retail shops and quite a few mini-golf spots. It’s not for everyone but it is certainly worth a look around.

Although there are plenty of hotel rooms in Yarmouth (the most of any town on Cape Cod), couples looking for a quiet time might want to avoid staying on Route 28 and opt to stay closer to the Route 6a side of town. Couples who are looking for a little more nightlife and excitement, on the other hand....

Traffic along Route 28 can be a bit of a nightmarel during the height of the tourist season, so be prepared and leave a little earlier if you have to be anywhere by a certain time.
