  1. Take Mom Shopping in Town

Chatham is home to many unique shops and boutiques that offer everything from clothing and accessories to home decor and souvenirs. Treat your mom to a day of shopping and exploring the charming streets of Chatham. Some of our favorite shops include Tale of the Cod, Chatham Candy Manor, Sundance Clothing, the Mayflower Shop, and Yankee Ingenuity.

2. Dine in Local Seafood Restaurants

Cape Cod is known for its delicious seafood, and Chatham is no exception. Take your mom out for a special meal at one of the many seafood restaurants in town. Some of our favorites include The Impudent Oyster, Del Mar, Viera on Main, and Pate’s.

3. Go Wine Tasting

If your mom is a wine lover, take her on a wine-tasting tour of Cape Cod’s local vineyards. Truro Vineyards and Cape Cod Winery are both located within a short drive from Chatham and offer tastings and tours.

4. Go on an Island Excursion to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket

Take a day trip to one of Cape Cod’s nearby islands for a fun and relaxing adventure. Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket both offer beautiful beaches, charming towns, and plenty of activities to keep you and your mom entertained.

5. Go on a Scenic Train Raid for Brunch

For a unique and memorable Mother’s Day experience, take your mom on a scenic train ride through Cape Cod’s picturesque landscape. The Cape Cod Rail Road offers a brunch train that serves delicious food while you enjoy the views.

6. Go to the Beach

No trip to Cape Cod is complete without a visit to the beach. Chatham is home to several beautiful beaches, including Lighthouse Beach and Harding’s Beach. Pack a picnic lunch and spend the day soaking up the sun with your mom.

7. Visit Museums

Cape Cod is home to many beautiful museums that showcase the area’s rich history and culture. The Chatham Marconi Maritime Center, the Atwood House and Museum, and the Chatham Railroad Museum are all worth a visit and within walking distance. We also recommend the JFK Museum, Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, and the Sandwich Glass Museum.

8. Smell the Flowers

Take your mom to one of Cape Cod’s many flower farms and gardens and let her enjoy the beautiful scenery of many blooming flowers. Heritage Museum & Gardens in Sandwich and Cape Cod Lavender Farm in Harwich are two great options.

If your mom loves the outdoors, take her on a nature walk, bike ride, or kayaking trip. Nickerson State Park in Brewster and the Cape Cod Rail Trail are two great spots for outdoor activities.

10. Spa Day
