Cape Cod Tours

Cape Cod is one of the most popular summer vacation destinations for New Englanders – generations of families have played on the same beaches for decades. But, of course, it's not just for the locals. The arm of Massachusetts that curls away from the mainland and reaches north again, like someone flexing an arm muscle, is called Cape Cod.

While many American schoolchildren learn that the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, their actual landing spot was closer to the place where Provincetown now sits, near the tip of Cape Cod. The Cape was one of the first area settled by newcomers from England, and by the 19th century, it had already become a summer escape for people living in nearby cities.

Today, vacationers head to Cape Cod for time on the beach. Other activities include hiking, whale watching, golf, cycling, boating, wine tasting, fishing and kayaking. There are also several historic lighthouses on the Cape, and you can climb to the top of the Pilgrim Monument 
in Provincetown for a view out to sea. 

Practical Info

The drive from Boston to Cape Cod is a distance of 50 to 100 miles, depending how far out onto the Cape you're going. You can also take a boat from Boston to Provincetown at the tip of the Cape; a catamaran trip is roughly 90 minutes, while a more leisurely ferry takes about three hours. Islands off the Cape, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, are also extremely popular vacation spots.
