Brewster is an historic sea captains' town located on the bay side of Cape Cod.
Established in 1803, Brewster encompasses approximately twenty three square miles, including over 325 acres of beach and marshlands, with 24 ponds larger than 10
acres in size.
Brewster has taken action to protect the town's historic character by establishing sign codes and site plan review by-laws and is in the
process of updating its comprehensive plan. In 1985, Brewster took steps to protect its open space and water quality by purchasing close to 700 acres of land.
Currently, over one-third of Brewster's land has been retained for conservation, open space, recreation and watershed protection. Consequently, Brewster boasts
award-winning drinking water and two nationally acclaimed 18-hole golf courses among other recreation sites. Nickerson State Park contains 400 acres of trails for
biking and hiking, camping areas, and freshwater ponds for swimming, fishing and boating. Brewster has over 15 bed and breakfast inns and more than 30 art
galleries, craft shops and antique shops, most of which are along historic Route 6A, the old "King's Highway".
Brewster's year-round population
doubles in the summer season as visitors come to sample the charming diversions of the town.
