our SELF-GUIDED Walking Tours

Historic homes—many owned by sea captains—old inns, houses of worship, charming B&Bs, quaint shops, places to sit and enjoy a meal, and of all things a windmill! ... these are just some of the things you'll find along and around the Captains' Mile and the historic Old King's Highway in Yarmouth Port, and along and around the Bass River and Sea Street in South Yarmouth.

Our five Walking Tour Guides—covering everything from architecture to the possible presence of ghostly inhabitants—will help you make the most of your time with countless opportunities for that expertly framed architectural photograph or the occasional selfie.

Amazingly, some of the buildings you'll pass date back to the 1600s, and are as lovingly maintained now as they have been by generations of families through whole centuries. Their owners know first-hand the joys and the challenges of living in a home listed on the National Register. And, yes, quite a few are also reputed to be inhabited by the spirits of souls long departed.

All we ask is that you respect the privacy of these property owners as you would have others respect yours.
