Sandwich is a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, United States. Get out of town with these interesting Sandwich side-trips: Edward Gorey House (in Yarmouth Port), Chatham (Chatham Lighthouse Beach & Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge) and Nobska Point Lighthouse (in Woods Hole). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Heritage Museums & Gardens, steep yourself in history at Hoxie House, explore the landscape on two wheels at Shining Sea Bikeway, and don't miss a visit to Main Street Hyannis.
