Ok, we have a secret to confess: It never really gets unbearably hot on the Cape, but every once in a while, the temperatures DO rise up over 80, and if you’re not used to the heat wave, you’ll be looking for ways to keep cool like everyone else! Summer vacations spent on Cape Cod are magical experiences that you never want to end, and when the suns shining bright overhead, we’ve come up with these activities to help you keep your cool! Get out your tank tops, slip into a pair of flip flops, and start planning your unforgettable Cape Cod vacation. Life doesn’t get much better than this!

The Beach

The wind in your hair, the sun shining down from overhead, and the feel of the cool ocean water cradling your body are just a few reasons why a day at the beach cures all ills. Why not make it your first stop on a vacation that will be filled with magical moments from the first day to the last?

Go to the Movies

Yes, you can see a movie anytime, but when is the last time you spent a day going from theater to theater and catching ALL the movies you’ve been dying to see in the same day? The Chatham 14 Movie Theaters offers crisp and cool air conditioning and the chance to escape into a fantasy world for a few hours at a time—take advantage of it!

Woods Hole Science Aquarium

The aquarium isn’t a large one, but when you’re looking to escape the heat for a few hours at a time, there’s no better place to explore! Teaching our kids that education can be entertaining, the touch tanks are especially fun for those with gentle hands, while the outdoor seal exhibit will have your entire family laughing as you watch the antics of these canine-like creatures that make their home here!

Swim in the Pool of Your New England Vacation Rentals Vacation Escape

Not all our homes have pools, but if you plan ahead and rent one that does, you may discover your family never wants to leave your backyard! Greet the day with a refreshing swim, do cannonballs with your kids after a long morning of sightseeing, or float on your back at night, watching the stars above wink and twinkle. Your vacation in one of our New England Vacation Rentals homes with a pool will take you to places you never dreamed possible. Reserve yours today and discover how the RIGHT vacation rental can make all the difference!
