Timing is everything at this major vacation destination. Despite the crowds that flock to the beautiful beaches in the summer, there are still hidden gems to be found around the seashore. Check out the Audubon bird sanctuaries, where you can see a surprising number of birds and creatures. It’s surprising, but there actually is wildlife to be seen… other than vacationing Bostonians, of course.
“Beaches, lighthouses, and seaside charm”
Discover the beaches, lighthouses, and seaside charm of Cape Cod National Seashore. With over 40,000 acres of protected land, this national seashore offers endless opportunities for outdoor recreation, from swimming and fishing to hiking and biking. Visit the historic lighthouses, including Highland Light and Nauset Light, or explore the nature trails and dunes. Cape Cod National Seashore is a quintessential New England destination that is not to be missed.
Been visiting the Cape my whole life. There really isn't any place else quite like it. It's very alternative but also has a deep-rooted cultural heritage that makes you think of historical New England. Visit Hyannis, Martha's Vineyard, Provincetown, Sandwich, and Chatham. You won't be disappointed. A great place to bike is the Shining Sea Bikeway. The ocean water is freezing but you actually get used to it pretty quickly. Definitely try the clam chowder. Anywhere. All the clam chowder on the Cape is amazing. Seafood alone is reason enough to visit.
Cape Cod is the quintessential beach town of the North East, full of picturesque shops, hotels, restaurants, sand-swept beaches and just a laid back vibe. The beach is beautiful, a little on the cooler side if you prefer really warm climates and the sea is a bit chilly, but it's just so beautiful and relaxing. It's a great place to go on a family holiday - I went with my parents and 2 siblings and had a great time putzing around town and hanging out on the beach. It's definitely more of a keep-to-yourself type of place so if you're looking for a party it probably isn't the right place. Would be a great spot for a romantic holiday as well. If you get cold easily keep a sweater around as it can get chilly at night or on a windy day.
We went in June 2017 on a misty overcast morning. temps hovering in the upper 50's. It was nice because NO ONE was there! We had the beaches all to ourselves. Beautiful!
