 Cape Cod Travel

Cape Cod is a place that has lots more to offer than the “sand dunes and salty air” that Patti Page sang about in the 50s. With the possible exception of a mountain range, Cape Cod has it all: Pilgrim history, incredible natural beauty, working windmills and cranberry bogs, a benevolent yet interesting climate, a paradise for artists, golfers and birdwatchers.  Visitors can enjoy a wide range of exciting Cape Cod tourist attractions any time of the year.

It is a place of magnificent beaches, crystal kettle ponds and myriad estuaries to explore in a kayak or canoe. It is a peninsula of biking trails, hiking trails, museums, and exciting theatre productions. It is a place to feed seals, to watch a breaching whale and to learn about maritime history. It is a place for families, for couples, for people, for you…to relax, kick off your shoes, wiggle your toes, breathe in some sea air, and enjoy your today.

The island of Martha's Vineyard is most worthy of in-depth exploration, so linger there. Its historic towns, fine museums, wildlife sanctuaries, golf courses, unparalleled beaches and laid-back lifestyle are only a few miles offshore but seem worlds apart.

Much of the charm of Nantucket is associated with its historic sights, museums and attractions, its cobblestoned main street, small lanes and byways, yet it is Nantucket's superlative beaches—all open to the public—and conservation lands, accessible to the public for biking, hiking, birdwatching and nature walks, that provide testament to the island's natural beauty.
