Best Reasons to Live in Yarmouth

Are you ready to change your life and live your dream? 

If you’d love a relaxed lifestyle in a classic Cape Cod town surrounded by life-enhancing nature in a supportive community…then here’s why Yarmouth is the place to call home:

You’re at the center of everything!  Getting around is easy.  A compact 28 sq. miles, Yarmouth sits at the center of the Cape. The sandy beaches of Nantucket Sound in the south and the calm waters of Cape Cod Bay in the north are yours within minutes.  With Yarmouth as your hub, you can enjoy the charms of upper and lower Cape towns.  Within a half-hour, you can be over the bridge to work off-Cape or on your way to Boston’s big events. 

Live in balance with nature’s cycles for a healthy mind and body.  Feed your senses with yellow forsythia marking spring, the sounds of waves and seagulls of summer, the smell of autumn’s apples and pumpkins, the light touch of snow on your face in winter.

Be as active as you want outdoors – Yarmouth is a Green Community and prides itself on actively protecting our natural beauty, conserved open spaces, and the health of our waters. Choose your favorites: swimming, walking, kayaking, biking, fishing, sailing, golfing, tennis, pickleball, or mini-golf!    

Culture and Entertainment Year-Round…from the historical past to the creative present, there’s no end to the enjoyment of history, art, music, theater, and learning throughout the year.

Your heritage is one of the oldest towns in the nation. Settled in 1639, the Town has preserved its past from Wampanoag sites to windmills and seafaring Captain’s homes to be part of your present.

As a vibrant vacation destination, summer and fall are filled with exciting events and festivals, but they don’t stop when the tourists leave.  The Seaside Festival, St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and Christmas Stroll are exciting events for all ages. Yarmouth’s own Music Room, The Loft, and Cape Cod Cultural Center offer the arts for everyone throughout the year.  Cape-wide museums, theaters, schools, and stages offer ongoing entertainment and learning for the whole family.     

Conveniences…. All the amenities of a city!  Libraries, restaurants, specialty shops, fish markets, and fitness classes from Aerobics to Zumba, the RMV, real estate and insurance agents, lawyers, accountants, doctors, and home professionals are all in our town. And for more, you’ll find the Transportation Center and everything from the Cape Cod Mall and Home Depot to our excellent award-winning Cape Cod Hospital in our neighboring town of Hyannis.  

Community support….Through our Town, religious and private organizations, community life is diverse, inclusive, vibrant, and caring  — from senior services to food banks, child care, business help, community-oriented Police, medical services, and a Town government that welcomes your participation in decision making.
