On-shore and off, Cape Cod offers more than just maritime history and natural beauty. Here, the land ends far before the activities do. This peninsula is crisscrossed with countless trails for hiking, biking, and running. Freshwater ponds are perfect for a day swimming or sailing with the family. Much of the extensive coastline is controlled by the National Seashore, allowing for unspoiled vistas to be enjoyed by generations to come. The gentler bay side, perfect for kayaking or sailing, is balanced by the Atlantic beaches where surfing, boating, and chartered fishing is in full swing. In spots, only a few miles separate these two sides. Whether you decide to hit one of the many golf courses, or to simply call it a beach day, you’ll be sure to find your time on the Cape to be well spent.
