Just above the “elbow” of Cape Cod, Orleans is a small town on the Cape. Like most towns on the Cape, Orleans has a rich history that is still reflected in its culture today. With classic architecture, it comes as no surprise that this town has been populated for hundreds of years.
The beaches in Orleans really allow residents to stop and smell the roses. Smooth sand, lovely water, and a smaller population make for the perfect beach going experience. Not one for the beach? Orleans has a few beautiful parks, and loads of historical sites to visit on a summer vacation, or a weekend in town. Typical of most shoreline towns, Orleans runs on an industry of fishing and agriculture.
True to its roots, Orleans has a ripe entertainment culture as well. The famous Orleans Arena Theatre is in downtown Orleans. Founded in the mid 1900’s, this theatre has hosted a slew of plays that entertain and delight residents.
