Cape Cod Trip Planner
Welcome to Cape Cod!
This region of Massachusetts is known for its scenic marine setting, fine beaches, country inns and outstanding seafood establishments. The main town in Cape Cod is Hyannis, which is home to the John F. Kennedy Memorial. Cape Cod also offers a jumping-off point to reach the nearby islands of Martha's Vineyard, with an interesting whaling heritage and sandy beaches, and Nantucket, with quaint cobblestone streets and Quaker architecture. Local history is waiting to be discovered at several venues in the area, including Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, The Old Atwood House Museum and Falmouth Historical Society Museum. The arts are also well represented in Cape Cod, and local galleries display everything from glass art to paintings and sculptures. Guided whale watching adventures, a major draw to the area, are offered by a number of local tour companies.
