This New England state has its heart in Boston during the week and the Cape on the weekends. The vibrant capital city-goers split their time between living the fast life and heading to the laid back, old-world, seaside atmosphere of Cape Cod.
In Cape Cod you can relax on its sunny beaches with the Atlantic thundering in the background, watch seals frolic and whales dance. You can walk along the tidal pools of Cape Cod Bay and stand in awe as the tide goes out for miles while the sea creatures burrow into the sand, and the pencil clam shoots sprays of water on your legs. On the Bay, the sun sets into water - and on some days the setting is accompanied by the music of a steel drum band.
Enjoy the arts at the many galleries and museums that dot the Cape from Sandwich to Provincetown. See the best in summer theatre. Explore the lighthouses that brought ships of old safely ashore. Stay in an old sea captain's house and let your imagination run wild. Follow the Cape Cod Rail Trail and experience the ecology of the Cape, from salt marshes, scrub pine forests, kettle ponds and more birds than you can imagine. End your days with a Cape lobster - elegant or in the rough, depending on your mood.
