A well-known landmark for early explorers with a rich whaling and trade history that remains evident on the Cape and on neighboring islands has been a favorite resort destination for decades. Cape Cod offers nearly 560 miles of wild, windswept and driftwood strewn beaches peppered with vocal grey seals, quaint harbors, haunting sand dunes, endless cranberry bogs and famed, winking lighthouses like Race Point and Sandy Neck to explore!
If you aren’t interested in clamoring up rocky cliffs and rugged terrain, the breathtaking Cape Cod National Seashore Preserve presents 40 miles of clean, sandy beach and trails for you to ride or wander and comb the sand at your leisure. The Cape is a highly favored destination of sports anglers and outdoor enthusiasts, alike. Antique hunters, gallery browsers and bed and breakfast aficionados flock in droves to her quaint towns and it would seem none are immune to her abundant natural and architectural charms and eclectic culture!
With a somewhat cooler, yet moderate climate, Cape Cod offers visitors perfect year-round opportunities for a fabulously versatile, comfortable stay. While peak season sees the height of commercial tourist activity, the shoulder seasons of late spring and early fall offer equally enchanting experiences-that steamy, thick bowl of fresh New England clam chowder you’ve been dreaming of will taste as good in July as it would in December!
