Cape Cod Towns: 

Overview

Wareham is an ideal place for people who want to escape the bustle of the city without having to move to the Cape. Situated close to Lakeville, where a new Boston commuter rail service now operates, Wareham is 50 miles south of Boston and 122 miles from New York City. It also resides next to Interstates 195 and 495. 

Wareham’s winter population of 20,000 triples in the summertime to include tourists and seasonal residents, alike. The area has several beaches, as well as other attractions and entertainment. During the summer, the Wareham Gatemen, part of the Cape Cod Baseball League, play at Wareham High School's Spillane Field. The league features some of the country’s best college players. Years ago, Red Sox MVP Mo Vaughn played for Wareham.

For outdoor enthusiasts, the 500-acre Maple Park Family Camp offers top-notch hiking, swimming, boating and camping. Golfers can enjoy the Bay Pointe Country Club. Hunters and fisherman can also take advantage of the target and tackle facilities at the Wankinco Rod and Gun Club.

Wareham offers all the amenities of Cape Cod, without having to drive over the bridge to reach them.
