Orleans, Massachusetts is located in Barnstable County and part of the lower Cape.  The population is about 6,000.  Home to some of the most beautiful beaches, Orleans is situated in a location that includes both bayside beaches and the National Seashore, like the popular Nauset beach.  For more on the history of Orleans click here.

The picturesque downtown shouts small-town New England, with boutique shops, local markets and a variety of dining spots.  Main Street Orleans is also the home of the popular July 4th Parade, which the Orleans Firebirds ride a float in every year.  

There's so much to do while living and visiting the Cape including local theaters, yoga studios, bike paths, a weekly farmer's market, hiking, fishing, golfing and so much more.  The Orleans Chamber of Commerce is a great resource for all things Orleans!
