What makes Cape Cod such an iconic New England coastal experience? Is it the miles and miles of shore that this gently northward-curling peninsula boasts, just short drive from Boston? The incredible antiquing that could eat up days of your trip and supply all the trappings you’d need to start your own bed and breakfast back home? Or is it the world-class restaurants and art galleries that call to you from areas such as Harwich and Eastham? It’s all that, of course, plus getting a truly local experience by staying in one of our Cape Cod vacation rentals.
The peninsula has four distinct areas to explore. From Upper Cape, bordered by Buzzards Bay, Cape Cod Bay, and Nantucket Sound, it’s just a short boat ride to famously affluent Martha’s Vineyard. Explore Swan Pond River and check the Bass River Lighthouse off your list with ease while staying at Seawinds II in Mid Cape. Live like a local sea captain (or just stay next door to one) in Brewster in Lower Cape, then make your way to the very tip of the Outer Cape: Provincetown.
Can we let you in on a secret? There’s a beach for just about everyone on Cape Cod. All you need to do is find yours. Families flock to the peaceful waters of Cape Cod Bay for a relaxing day of tyke-size splashing, while college students wanting to cut loose after finals head to Wellfleet. If you’re an angler, make a beeline for Falmouth to catch plenty of this peninsula’s namesake. Got a vacation rental with a kitchen? Imagine bringing home some fresh cod and cooking up a meal for the ages.
