Your Cape Cod Summer Vacation Will Be Amazing This Year!

With so many spectacular activities in our area, you’re sure to make the most of your Cape Cod summer vacation. Here are our suggestions for which places you should experience in our Massachusetts gem this year!

Experience the Cultural Center of Cape Cod

If you’re looking for a date night activity, attend a show at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod. This spectacular place showcases seasonal events and rotating performances for your entertainment. Or, you can test your culinary skills by participating a cooking class. If you want to buy something to commemorate your time here, purchase one of the unique Bass River Press publications in the gift shop like On the Loose by Cotuit poet Judith Askew. What’s the best part? The Cultural Center is just across the street from The Captain Farris House!

Tour the Heritage Museum and Gardens

If you are looking for an afternoon adventure, visit the Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich, MA. When you walk in the Museum, you’ll find a rotating display of interesting art by various local and national painters, sculptors, and collectors. One of our favorite displays is the American Art & Carousel Gallery, a rare collection featuring books, vintage automobiles, and military miniatures! As you venture through the Gardens, you’ll be delighted by more than 1,000 varieties of beautiful flowers.

Go Whale Watching

When our guests want to experience one of our favorite pastimes, we recommend Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch in Provincetown, MA! This wonderful company is open from mid-April to the end of the October and offers a front row seat to see these spectacular creatures swimming along the Cape Cod National Shoreline. From the moment you board one of the private charters, you’ll learn about conservation efforts for whales and venture through the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary.

Tee Up at Our Golf Courses

On a sunny day in Yarmouth, book a tee time on one of our golf courses. Each of our links features deep sand traps, small ponds, and championship-level greens. If you want to get an early start or plan a twilight round, you’re sure to challenge yourself and take your golf game to the next level. And, you’re just a short drive from your luxurious accommodation at The Captain Farris House to one of our favorite Cape Cod golf courses!

Relax on One of Our Beaches

You’ll find the perfect spot in the sand on one of our area’s gorgeous beaches to see the natural beauty of the Nantucket Sound or the Cape Cod Bay! Each of these sandy shorelines offers the ideal place to relax, read a book, or soak up the sun. Before heading from The Captain Farris House to one of these peaceful paradises, ask us about our complimentary beach towels and chairs!
