Welcome to Chatham
Chatham sits at the “elbow” of the Cape and shares a shoreline with the Atlantic Ocean and the calmer waters of Nantucket Sound. This seaside town has become an upscale resort community without losing its true-blue New England charm. Known for its beautiful beaches, quaint downtown, top-ranked restaurants, and thriving accommodation options for visitors, it’s considered a prime destination spot for those visiting Cape Cod.
Many notable attractions put Chatham on the map and add to the lengthy list for what makes Chatham attractive to vacationers, summer residents, year-rounders, and those looking for a community in which to make a real estate investment.
Lighthouse Beach near the landmark 19th-century Chatham Lighthouse is probably one of the most popular spots on the Cape and each year thousands of people visit this lookout. Occasionally spouting whales can be seen in the Atlantic as you look across the sand bar of South Beach Island. To the south, Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge provides a vast habitat for migratory birds and is a favorite for naturalists. Shell fishing, surf casting, wind surfing, boating, hiking, and biking activities are at your doorstep throughout town. History is plentiful both in the local architecture and at the local museums. The Atwood House Museum and the Chatham Railroad Museum are well worth visiting.
Chatham is considered a national, if not worldwide, “destination” location. As a result, real estate in town has become desirable.
