Cute, quaint village with some lovely little buildings and shops. We spent a pleasant hour or so walking around, reading some of the historical plaques and taking pictures.

The People of Sandwich have done a good job of preserving the historic aspect of the village. We visited the First Church of Christ, the Dan'l Webster inn, the Sandwich Glass Museum, and Art Show at the Town Hall that is part of the 375th Anniversary of the town.

This was all within a 3-4 block radius and worked... More
