While some people may go for the chaos of a “fun center,” there are more laid-back ways to stay entertained on your Cape Cod visit. The towns of Cape Cod are well-known for their cultural scenes, including art, theater, and more. Many towns have cultural centers, theaters, comedy clubs, and other locations where you can take in either a live performance or see Hollywood’s latest offerings. When the sun goes down, there are a number of bars, taverns, and clubs offering adults-only entertainment to unwind after a long day.


There is plenty to do at the beach for a day of relaxation. Go swimming in the Atlantic, sit out and sunbathe, or retreat under the shade of an umbrella with a book and picnic. The Cape Cod National Seashore is nearly 40 miles of beachfront spanning Chatham, Eastham, Orleans, Provincetown, Truro, and Wellfleet. There are non-oceanfront beaches like First Encounter Beach, Mayflower Beach, and others where you can enjoy a day on the sand, too.

Sightseeing Tours

There are a variety of historic and other significant sights to see around Cape Cod. While you could get in your car and plot your own course, the more relaxing option would be to let someone else do the driving. There are a variety of companies in the towns of Cape Cod that offer guided tours of the area, hitting on all the hot spots. Knowledgeable guides will take you to all the places for sightseeing in Cape Cod and fill you in on everything you want to know.

The name of Where the Sidewalk Ends Bookstore pays homage to famed author and poet Shel Silverstein. Located in East Chatham in a two-story antique barn, it’s just minutes from the beach so you can grab something new when you finish your beach reading. If you love the smell of old books, step into Tim’s Used Books in Provincetown. If you’ve taken a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard, stop in at Bunch of Grapes Bookstore where you’ll find books by independent authors as well as the latest New York Times
