With 560 miles of sandy beaches along Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean,
Cape Cod is a popular tourist destination. Some of the best
beaches can be found in Cape Cod National Seashore, a forty-mile stretch
of oceanfront in Outer Cape Cod. Bay beaches are ideal for young
children with their calm waters, while the ocean side offers rougher
waters for the more adventurous. The beautiful beaches are not the
only tourist draw, however. Each May, visitors converge on the
region for Cape Cod Maritime Days, an annual celebration of local
history that includes nautical art exhibits, kayak excursions, and tours
of Cape Cod's many lighthouses, among other activities.
Provincetown, on the northern tip of Cape Cod, is a thriving artist
community. The Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown is a tribute to
the Mayflower landing at that site on November 11, 1620. Cape Cod is
perfect for family and outdoor activities as well as just relaxing on
