Cape Cod is one of New England's finest treasures and it's the perfect place to visit in the summer! Basking in the sun is always relaxing, but the Cape offers plenty of other fun things to do:

  • Wellfeet Drive-In Theatre: The Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre, built in 1957, plays double features every night in the summertime. The theater is a well-known spot in the Cape and has become a family favorite. Watching a movie while sitting in the car will make you feel like one of the Pink Ladies in Grease! After you get your dose of nostalgia, stop by the snack bar or play a round of mini golf.
  • Cape Cod National Seashore: Henry David Thoreau once said, "A man may stand there and put all America behind him." He was talking about the Cape Cod National Seashore. The seashore encompasses forty miles of beaches, marshes, and ponds. Admire the view of the dunes, go for a stroll, or take a dip in the ocean, but watch out—the waves can be powerful!
