The Cape definitely has its fair share of tourist-friendly T-shirt shops and boutiques hawking gifts emblazoned with seaside symbols (lobster-print pants, anyone?). And there are iconic shops that have entertained generations of kids, like the Brewster General Store, the Chatham Candy Manor, and Dr. Gravity's Kite Shop. But you’ll also find an emerging breed of well-curated boutiques selling tasteful home goods, stylish antiques, and chic clothing. For outdoorsy types, places like the Bird Watcher’s General Store and the Goose Hummock Shop encourage you to get out and enjoy nature at its finest.
