Summer holidays to Cape Cod are regarded as some of the most magical summer fun you can have. Fantastically friendly and laid back, Cape Cod is a favourite getaway for American families in Massachusetts, where the Cape’s undeniable beauty mixes with sensational seafood, a balmy climate and rich nature to create an astonishing summer playground of the highest quality. With over 100km of wonderful beaches, historic towns and iconic lighthouses, it is little wonder that Cape Cod accommodation rarely needs help in advertising from the Cape Cod Tourist Board!
The beaches of Cape Cod are absolutely sensational. Cape Cod tourist guides are filled with pictures of the sweeping Atlantic beach, backed by enormous sand dunes protected by their natural park status. There is a huge amount of sand upon which to relax, and although the car parks can become quite crowded during the peak of the summer, those staying in Cape Cod accommodation need not fight for space, as the beaches are within walking distance of Cape Cod’s houses. If you would prefer to explore more peaceful settings, there are huge tidal beaches backed by natural swamps and pine forests just a few miles away.
Cape Cod tourist guides are not simply filled with pages of beaches and beach life. The interior of Cape Cod is extremely beautiful, and crossed with footpaths and cycle routes of indescribable beauty. The historic towns and picturesque fishing villages of Cape Cod are brimming with attractions, wonderful antique shops and charming seafront restaurants famous for their oysters, clams and lobsters. These walks and rides are especially popular with nature lovers, as the salt marshes, freshwater creeks and wild dunes are home to an amazing variety of bird life. Cape Cod whale watching excursions are absolutely breath-taking, and if you are hoping to enjoy whale watching, Cape Cod accommodation is the perfect base, as you may need to leave early in the morning.
Chatham is a fantastic town on the ‘elbow’ of Cape Cod, and if you are looking for Cape Cod houses centrally located and with all the facilities you might need right on your doorstep, a Cape Cod rental villa in Chatham is an excellent choice.
Summer temperatures in Cape Cod tends to peak at around 30°C daily from June until September, although seasonal variations are limited. Those taking Cape Cod accommodation after Labour Day in September will have much of the region to themselves, and, as any Cape Cod tourist information will confirm, rentals of Cape Cod houses will be cheaper too.
The proximity of Logan International Airport (BOS) in Boston is a fantastic asset for anyone trying to reach Cape Cod accommodation direct from the UK. Just 80 miles from a holiday rental in Cape Cod, and receiving direct American Airlines flights from London, Logan Airport makes Cape Cod holidays fantastically easy to take.
