Situated on both sides of the canal, Bourne has the unique privilege of welcoming all travelers on to Cape Cod.This is why it is called the gateway to the cape.
Since 1627, Bourne has been known as a trading center. You may still visit this part of our history, Aptucxet Trading Post. Other points of interest are Bourne Scenic Park, located conveniently beneath the Bourne Bridge, the Buzzard Bay Railroad Bridge, and National Marine Life Center.
During the summer season, the town hosts Concerts in the Park, a 4th of July Parade and of course Cape Cod Baseball; however the fun does not stop when summer ends.The traffic has decreased in September when the Bourne Scallop Festival is held. Now with the backdrop of the autumn ocean breeze, the fall begins to drape the cape in lovely colors as the trees begin to turn with their majestic tones.
Come enjoy this quiet haven at the start of the Cape. It beckons to the weary traveler to come and rest a bit.
