Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean just south of Boston lies Cape Cod, one of the East Coast’s dreamiest and most enduring vacation spots. Peppered with picturesque fishing villages, historic lighthouses, and wide-open beaches, the Cape is where Bostonians come to unwind. Bike along the 22-mile Cape Rail Trail, enjoy a clambake on the beach, or head out on a sailboat excursion. Each of the 11 seaside towns along the Cape boasts its own distinctive style: Wellfleet is known for its beaches and art galleries, Provincetown for its nightlife, and Chatham for its shopping. And because it’s only about 70 miles long, it’s easy to explore the entire Cape.
At the very northern tip of Cape Cod lies Provincetown, a distinguished art colony known for its LGBTQ-friendliness. P-town is a lively mix of upscale restaurants, historic mansions, and art galleries.
New England is one of the best regions in the world to spot whales (particularly humpback and finback), and they flock here to feed on mackerel, herring, and krill. Whale-watching high season is April through October.
The national seashore is made up of 40 miles of protected beaches, ponds, and marshes, sprinkled with historic lighthouses and wild cranberry bogs. The town of Eastham is considered the gateway to the seashore.
Cape Cod boasts a true maritime climate, marked by cool sea breezes drifting off the Atlantic Ocean no matter the season. Expect chilly winters, mild springs, sunny summers, and crisp autumns. Summer is the most popular time to visit, where the beaches hum with activity and tourists and locals alike cool off in the refreshing waters of the Atlantic.
