It’s easy to find yourself completely overwhelmed by the seemingly endless sea of things to do on Cape Cod, especially if it’s your first time visiting, but don’t fret! Here is a handy list of my top 7 cape cod vacation tips for families! 1. Going “Lighthousing” From Race Point to Wings Neck, there are over a dozen beautiful lighthouses to visit. You can even enter almost all of the various towers that span the cape, on guided tours. Or, if you want to get your sea legs, you can go on one of the many charter cruises, available day or evening, that take you down the coast to see all of the different lighthouses in one sitting. 2. Eat a Freshly Caught Meal If you’re like me, than you enjoy seafood most when it is caught fresh, and on Cape Cod, you can bet on your fish, clam, or lobster was caught not be a few hours before it reaches your taste buds! 3. Go Cycling or Hiking If you fancy yourself an outdoor adventure, or just want to get some fresh air, head on over to Nickerson State Park for a nice walk. There are also many bike rental locations on the cape if you’d rather bike the pristine coastline. 4. Head to the Beach! Cape Cod is full of gorgeous beach and shoreline, so why not grab your towels and hit the beach?
