Many day trips will be part of your experience. You may choose to go to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard and the ferries in Hyannis are about 20 minutes away.
The quaintness of Rte. 6A will lead you to antiquing, galleries and pottery shops. The lovely village of Chatham is also very close by. You may even choose to see the lighthouse.
In the nearby village of Sandwich, just off Rte. 6A, explore the Sandwich Glass Museum and the Thornton Burgess Museum (of Peter Rabbit fame).
