7 Cape Cod Vacation Tips for Families
There are so many fun and exciting things to do in Cape Cod, but my top 7 Cape Cod vacation tips for families would include going fishing, going to Pirate's Cove, going Whale watching, taking the Island Queen Ferry to Martha's Vineyard, visiting Marconi Beach, visiting Herring Cove Beach, and going to the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. Pirate's Cove is a great place to take the kids to! Pirate's Cove is a pirate themed miniature golf course that was featured in Northwest Airlines Magazine 2008 July edition as one of "Five Must-Do's on Cape Cod." The Whale Watch Fleet of Provincetown is great and easy to walk to if you are staying Provincetown because you can take a nice stroll down the famous Commercial Street to get to there. Commercial Street is where the main shopping of Provincetown is and has a very laid back atmosphere. The Island Queen Ferry can take you from Falmouth, Cape Cod to Martha's Vineyard in only thirty-five minutes. The ferry includes an enclosed lounge, outside decks, and even a full-service snack bar. The ferry sails every day starting at 9:00 from May to mid October. There are group discounts for parties of 20 or more, and children ages 3 and under travel free. Marconi Beach is a beautiful beach (there is a $15 entry fee per car) that has beautiful views from sand cliffs and great waves for surfing (or just watching other people surf)! It is a very romantic spot (especially for newlyweds) to enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean and even a sunset! Herring Cove Beach is also a very nice beach and it is free! Not only is it Provincetown's most popular beach, it is also a very diverse beach. It is great for people watching since there are so many different types of people that go there. Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary is a great place to go hiking along the salt marshes and taking in beautiful sights of nature at its finest. The sanctuary even includes a petite natural history museum that describes the local habitat and its creatures (so it is a great place to learn too).
