Antiquing Along Historic 6A

Cape Cod has lots of great beach day alternatives—if you know where to find them. Our guests love exploring our quaint towns and stores to find the perfect treasures. They’ll spend the day antiquing along 6A and then will duck into a cozy restaurant to revel in the joy of their finds.

Create your own antique tour with our list of top Cape Cod antique shops. Don’t forget to stop for lunch or dinner along your way. Enjoy every moment!

Antiques Center of Yarmouth

Located just 20 minutes from The Inn at Yarmouth Port.

Absolutely worth the trip across town from the Inn. The owners have been collecting antiques for this Cape Cod antique shop for close to two decades. Get lost for hours amidst the glass, furniture, ceramics, knickknacks, records, kitchen items, jewelry, and more!

Bonus: If you visited Cape Cod in the 1970’s you’ll remember this spot as the hugely popular Gay Nineties Restaurant and Cabaret.

Parnassus Book Service (Yarmouth Port)

A short walk from The Inn at Yarmouth Port.

Antique book lovers unite! As soon as you enter this historic charmer, you immediately feel at home. And maybe just a little overwhelmed by the size of their collections. Not to worry, now in their third generation, Parnassus is a family-run operation, and the staff knows where every single title lives.

Bonus: The bookstore recently served as the set for “The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry,” a major motion picture starring Kunal Nayyar (best known as Raj on “The Big Bang Theory) and Christina Hendricks. The front façade of the store was painted purple for the movie!

Guests love to walk to the bookstore in the afternoon, find an interesting read then head back to the Inn to pick up their afternoon treat and unwind on the patio. They seem to get lost in their antique read, favorite beverage, and home-baked treat before getting ready to go out to dinner.

Simply Vintage or on Instagram @simplyvintageofcapecod

Located in Yarmouth Port Village.

From The Inn at Yarmouth Port, walk across the street to this delightful shop filled with antiques from 11 dealers, refinished pieces, and coastal-themed retail items. Afterward, visit our many quaint village shops. Finish with a stop at Hallets Homemade Ice Cream. The perfect non-beach day!

Antiques Center of Cape Cod

No one returns empty-handed from this vast collection of antiques located in Dennis – about five miles down the road from The Inn at Yarmouth Port.

Be sure to check out both buildings – one features small items, and the other is chock full of larger items and furniture. Those who have visited the Inn know that we found our beloved garden statue, Lydia, and several antique flower urns here.
