Cape Cod is one of New England’s top beach locations with over 40 miles of shorelines. It is home to fourteen lighthouses, the most lighthouses of any county in the country. The Pilgrim Monument, located in Provincetown, is the largest granite structure in the country. Cape Cod is also the producer of arguably some of the best potato chips in the country. While Cape Cod is most popular for its beautiful beaches and sandy shorelines, the three things you should definitely experience the next time you’re at the Cape are the food, boat tours, and fishing trips.
It may not come as a surprise but if you are at the Cape this summer, it’s a must to try out the seafood selection. There’s a huge variety of different restaurants offering a wide number of seafood options including steamed whole lobsters, clams, and mussels. Other local summer favorites include lobster rolls, fried clams, and scallops with fries or onion rings. There are also many pastries to try such as croissants, french toast, red velvet cupcakes, and the apple bear claw. You can also beat the heat and indulge in a nice summer treat with the various unique ice cream flavors you could only find at Cape Cod.
While the beach and shoreline view is breathtaking, consider taking a boat tour and explore the Cape from the sea. Be sure to look out for some of the famous lighthouses spread throughout the Cape from Bourne to Provincetown, including the Nauset and Highland Lighthouse. Another option is to join a whale watch tour and get the chance to see whales, dolphins, and other aquatic lifeforms up close. If you’re feeling really adventurous, you may also consider kayaking, paddleboarding, or kitesurfing to get the full experience.
If you are looking for one of the most fun, enjoyable, and memorable experiences for your friends and family this summer, consider going bay fishing with the Cape Cod Family Fishing Charters. Don’t worry if you have no previous fishing experience because Captain Bob Betti has been operating a deep sea fishing boat charter in Cape Cod for guests of all ages for over 40 years. This is one of the best summer family activities where you get the opportunity to learn about bass fishing and other aquatic life forms in the area including striped bass, bluefish, tuna, and cod. These trips are only available from May to September so make your reservation today!
