Cape Cod, Massachusetts: Quaint Villages, Protected Beaches, and Miles of Shoreline

In the late 19th century, Cape Cod began to blossom into a summer vacation destination as visitors swapped crowded coastal cities for the sandy shores of eastern Massachusetts. Today, the arm-shaped peninsula encompasses a string of idyllic fishing villages, rolling dunes, and 300 miles of sandy shoreline—and it’s still the place where many East Coasters choose to spend their leisurely summer days. Popular attractions include fresh-seafood restaurants, quaint stores, and bicycle trails, such as the 11-mile Shining Sea Bikeway that wends from North Falmouth to Woods Hole.

But there’s also plenty to do in winter, when the crowds are a lot smaller. On the uppermost tip of the Cape, the free-spirited art colony of Provincetown attracts visitors year-round. This is one of the best places to head for a vibrant nightlife scene—there are cabarets, bars, and lounges aplenty. Pop into the Provincetown Art Association and Museum to check out local artwork, both historical and contemporary. Farther south, the Woods Hole Science Aquarium houses 140 marine animals native to the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region. You might even see marine biologists feeding the seals in the aquarium’s outdoor enclosure.

In the Mid-Cape, you’ll find Yarmouth, which has the saltwater beaches and golf courses typical of Cape Cod. But you’ll also find a couple of key cultural sites that set the town apart. First, there’s the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, which celebrates the arts with classes, workshops, and special exhibitions. Then there’s the Edward Gorey House, dedicated to the famous illustrator and author known for his macabre etchings.

Best b&b I've stayed at yet. The hospitality is beyond expectations. Carol and Jeff are the sweetest people and did everything possible to make us feel at home. Breakfast was made fresh for us every morning and was delicious! Seriously, I was so impressed. Will be back.
