What could be better on a beautiful spring afternoon or a warm summer day than gathering with friends or family on a large blanket and enjoying a picnic together? Especially if that picnic is taking place in scenic, serene Cape Cod where there are plenty of beachside or wooded areas to pick from. Cape Cod is known for its natural beauty and has served as a backdrop for many romantic scenes, picturesque family gatherings, and solitary strolls along its charming streets, and there’s no better place in the country for a perfect picnic. Our top 5 Cape Cod picnic spots include the following:
