Shopping Small Makes a Big Difference in Orleans
When it comes to shopping in Orleans, bigger is not better.
In fact, with very few exceptions, the shops and boutiques here are independently owned and sized for personal service, with the proprietor often on hand for custom consultation and assistance.
But it isn’t just the stores that are easy to navigate here. Orleans offers a number of conveniently situated shopping hubs, including a walkable downtown area lined with retail and restaurant options; a stretch of shops on the way to Nauset Beach in East Orleans; and highways 6A and Route 28, a browser’s nirvana of clothing shops, galleries, gift emporiums and stores dedicated to everything from fishing and birds to surfboards.
