Cape Cod, romantic as it is, isn't just for couples. You can bring the entire family for an unforgettable vacation because you'll find no shortage of kid-friendly things to do in Cape Cod. Skull Island at Bass River Sports World is fun for the whole family. It features the Cape's premier miniature golf course. After golf, check out the electric go-karts, the soccer and baseball cages, the driving range, the arcade, and the skate park. This is your one stop for fun and recreation in Cape Cod.
Visit the Woods Hole Science Aquarium, the oldest aquarium in the U.S. Focused solely on local waters, this small but impressive aquarium has been delighting visitors since 1871. Kids especially love the touch tank, where they can reach into tide pools filled with starfish and sea cucumbers. Other displays include sea turtles, lobster and wolffish. A special exhibit shows the effect of plastic trash on marine life. Two harbor seals have taken up residence in an outdoor pool and are a star attraction.
Another spot you won't want to miss is the Cape Cod Children's Museum. Designed to combine fun with learning, the displays at this museum are educational and interactive. A puppet theater, planetarium, dress-up castle, submarine and train are open for exploration. The highlight is a 30-foot pirate ship where children can imagine themselves riding the high seas. Let the little dudes run loose. These kid-friendly activities in Cape Cod will surely keep them, and you, busy and entertained the whole day through.
