Things To Do In Cape Cod

Cape Cod beaches are the places to see and be seen in the summertime. They are, by far, the biggest hot spots on the peninsula.

Contrary to what you might think of beaches along the eastern seaboard, Cape Cod beaches are simply spectacular. They are clean, safe and extremely family-friendly.

From beautiful bluffs and soft sand to gentle breezes and warm waves – beaches in the region are some of the prettiest in the country.

But before you come rushing to Cape Cod for a summer beach vacation, there are a few things you should know about the area beaches.

First, beaches that face Cape Cod Bay have the least surf, making them ideal for small children. The south-side beaches that face Nantucket also have small wave action.

Second, the east-facing beaches on the Atlantic Ocean have large surf and strong undertows. Children should be supervised at all times. These beaches though are a big hit with teens and adults.
