Cotuit is a village of the town of Barnstable on Cape Cod. Cotuit Oyster Company has been producing oysters in the pretty harbor since 1837. In this quiet residential area with upscale summer retreats, the harbor provides great boating and kayaking and some beautiful views.
Kettle-Ho Restaurant and Tavern, 12 School Street, +1 508-428-1862. Nice local bar with thin crust pizza and "better than good" pub food. Named after the legend in Cotuit that it was purchased from the natives for a kettle and a hoe.
