You ticket to the Cape Cod Coast

Bordering Rhode Island, Westport is a lively summer town surrounded by sandy beaches and rolling coastal farmland. While it was once a bustling whaling port today the town attracts vacationers in search of sun, sand and laid-back Cape Cod vibes. There's plenty of local history to discover and some gorgeous "saltbox" style cottages to snap up. Set right on the ocean, historic Westport vacation rentals put you just steps from the sand. There's also a charming village to explore featuring farm-to-table cafes, independent grocery stores and a handful of artisan ice creameries.

There are also a handful of local wineries and breweries to explore, so don't forget to arrive thirsty. With a scenic riverfront setting and imaginative tap list, there's no better place to savor a sunny afternoon than Buzzards Bay Brewing.
