There are thousands of reasons for planning a vacation to Cape Cod but the one reason that draws visitors back time and time again is the beauty of our natural landscape. From the ocean and beaches that comprise our backyard to the trees and rivers and ponds that offer a tranquility and serenity that feed our souls, our little piece of paradise is one of the most beautiful in the world. And by following this guide to outdoor Cape Cod adventures, your getaway will be everything you dreamed it could be and so much more!

Kayak on Bass River

Although we are primarily known for our ocean views, Bass River, which runs between Yarmouth and Dennis, is a beautiful option for Cape Cod adventures on the water! Rent a kayak from Bass River Kayaks and Paddle Boards at 118 Main Street in West Dennis and spend a few hours, a morning, or an entire day paddling in paradise! Passing under bridges and passing by rocky outcroppings, those who aren’t used to this type of physical activity may tire sooner than later but the views make any later aches and pains more than worth it!

Take a Family Picture at Drummer Boy Park in Brewster

Don’t you just love when your annual Christmas card picture outshines all your neighbors? Planning a portrait sitting at Drummer Boy Park is one of the surest ways of making this happen in 2019—especially when you pose in front of the Higgins Farm Windmill! Built in the 1700s and moved to the park in 1974, its distinguished beauty is enhanced with the addition of your family members dressed in colorful clothing standing in front of it! Schedule the picture for sunset and the breathtaking wonder of your photo leaps to the next level of gorgeous!

Hiking the Trails of Hawksnest State Park in Harwich

Treelined paths with wildlife peeking shyly from the foliage, docks that lead into the still waters of ponds covered with lily pads, and waterfalls of crystal clear water falling over moss covered boulders are just a few of the majestic sights you will see when hiking the trails of Hawksnest State Park. Peaceful, serene, and protected, your day in the park will be one you will never forget!
