Cape Cod (3-Day)
Jutting out some 70 miles into the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Cod is a region rich in history and filled with unique and interesting activities. Countless historic sites & landmarks tell of the proud role Cape Cod has played in American history, beginning with the arrival of the pilgrims in Provincetown in 1620. The village of Hyannis is much more than just a village. Considered by New Englanders to be the hub and heart of Cape Cod, Hyannis is known internationally as the “All-American City”. Hyannis, along with its surrounding Mid-Cape area, is where you’ll find the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum, delectable fish shacks and award-winning restaurants, world-class beaches, the island ferries, countless outdoor activities and Cape Cod's most unique shopping. Located 120 miles from Boston along the National Seashore on the outer most tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown is a year-round destination with a fascinating history and extraordinary qualities. From incredible beaches and boundless natural beauty to an eclectic arts and culture scene and world-class dining and shopping, Provincetown offers something for everyone.
