Harwich is a somewhat small coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Massachusetts. With a population of 12,142 people and three constituent neighborhoods, Harwich is the 154th largest community in Massachusetts.
Housing costs in Harwich are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don’t compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Massachusetts.
Harwich is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.
