How to See the Best Cape Cod Attractions in Three Days
In the best of worlds, every vacation you take would be one that would last as long as you needed to see everything there is to see, but in the real world, time off is often limited and we have to make do with what our employers see fit. This means that although you would love to have at least a month to explore our wonderful Cape Cod attractions, you may have to do it in just three short days. We think if you follow this guide, your Cape Cod getaway is guaranteed to be a memorable one!
Day 1: No Sleep
Forcing yourself to exit the comforts of our New England Vacation Rentals’ classic rentals each morning may be one of the most difficult things you have ever done, but you only have three days to see as much of the Cape as possible, so let’s get moving! Start with breakfast at one of the best spots in the mid Cape area, Hangar B Eatery at 240 George Ryder Road in Chatham.The stack of lemon ricotta pancakes will keep you well fueled for your day of adventures! Staying close to Chatham to alleviate travel time, your first experience is going to be a visit to the Chatham Shark Center at 235 Orleans Road. Learn all there is to know about the most misunderstood creature of the sea as you explore the exhibits, displays, and interactive exhibits found here. The rest of your day should be spent exploring the Chatham Light and the beach it presides over! In the summer you can climb to the top, but we think it’s a great place to visit no matter what time of year; family pictures taken here will make you smile!
Day 2: Dennis Adventures
Although every season is the right season to play on Cape Cod, summer is when the Cape is hopping, and going on Dennis adventures is going to be an experience of a lifetime. Explore your inner artist with a visit to the Cape Cod Museum of Art at 60 Hope Lane, enjoy a Massachusetts classic lobster roll at the Sesuit Harbor Café at 357 Sesuit Neck Road, or enjoy a night at the theater and some of the best community theater plays featured at the Cape Playhouse on 820 Main Street, Route 6A. Starting with the Importance of Being Earnest, shown June 12 through June 22nd and ending with Death Trap, shown August 21 through August 31st, every performance is destined to be the best one you’ve seen all year! And if you just can’t get enough lobster rolls, the Lobster Roll Sunset Cruise offered by Cape Cod Lobster Cruises costs just $45 per person!
Day 3: Saying Bye to Brewster
It’s your last day on beautiful Cape Cod, but don’t feel sad, there are still many adventures to be had before you say bye to Brewster! Let’s take a step back in to the past with visits to the 1799 Elijah Cobb House, the 1659 Dillingham House, and the Stony Brook Grist Mill and Museum for a peek into Cape Cod’s early days; all these buildings, and a few more can be found in Brewster, allowing you more sightseeing time and less travel time before you have to leave. Sunset at Point of Rocks Landing offers a stupendous sight you will never forget, and your farewell dinner at Chillingsworth—located at 2449 Main Street and considered the best restaurant on the Cape—will end your Cape Cod escape on a high note.
