Dating back centuries, it's an area that marries history with modernity, something you'll quickly understand when you spot old-world homes settled alongside antique boutiques and souvenir shops. Of course, if you love seafood you'll need to nosh on some while gazing at the waterÑit's really the only way to "do" West Yarmouth.
