Cape Cod, Massachusetts boasts quaint wood shingle houses, hydrangeas en mass and incredible beaches.
Nostalgia of a simpler time lives here.
If you’ve never been to Cape Cod, add it to your bucket list, contact me today and let me start planning your trip!

  • Cape Cod National Seashore – Hit the Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham.  This is a great learning opportunity, complete with ranger programs, a free short movie, museum, gift shop, beautiful views and more.  No visit to the Cape is complete without a stop here.

  • Chatham Pier Fish Market – Grab some fish or lobster, fresh off the boats!  You can watch the boats unload lobster by the 1000’s right to the front door while the seals entertain you as they frolic in the harbor.

  • Nauset Light Beach – made famous by the Cape Cod Potato Chip company, this lighthouse is a gem.  Tours to the top are allowed during certain times of the year.  Check with the National Park Service for a schedule.

  • Highland Lighthouse – take a tour of the lighthouse (nominal fee), watch a movie, learn history and see an original light lens up close.  You can also schedule a golf tee time next door at Highland Links.  Golf beneath the lighthouse and along the seashore.  The views can’t be beat!

  • Visit the John F. Kennedy Memorialit’s within walking distance and adjacent to Veterans Park Beach in Hyannis, the perfect spot for a picnic.  You can walk the beach and watch the ferries float by to both Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

  • Take a ferry to Nantucket – the ride over is short and sweet but the island’s quaint charm is even sweeter.  It’s one of the cutest little towns in America!  Meander the cobblestone roads and take the shuttle around the loop to see all the sites.  Adorable shops, delicious food, live music and more.  Don’t skip the Whaling Museum.  It’s recommended you not bring your vehicle for the day.  Martha’s Vineyard is also an option.

  • Province Lands Visitor’s Center – Drive the length of the Cape and make your way to Provincetown.  Explore the quaint neighborhoods and shops.  Be sure to stop in at the National Park Service Province Land’s Visitor Center to enjoy their rooftop deck perfect for whale watching.  Bring your own binoculars or use theirs.

  • Go to Paine’s Creek Beach at low tide – this gem of a spot is perfect for enjoying Cape Cod Bay.  You can bring a beach chair and relax as the tide comes in or take your kayak further out.  It’s the perfect spot if you have little ones, they can safely play and search for minnows or shells.  If you want to swim catch it at mid or high tide.  Parking is limited.

  • Drive over to Pilgrim Memorial State Park – see Plymouth Rock and a full-scale reproduction of Mayflower II.  It’s about half way between Boston and the Cape.
