Day 1 - Dennis Port


Chatham is my favorite town on the cape - it's not too far up the cape but nicely situated right in the middle. Harwich, another beautiful little town, is right next door. After checking into the Bed and Breakfast, have dinner at Clancy's where you can get a great view and a good meal.

Day 2 - South Yarmouth, Centerville, Harwich Port, East Harwich


Start off your day at Pancake Man, then hit the beach. Pirate's Cove Mini Golf is a good activity near by if you get bored of sunning yourself. Get some clam chowder at the Four Hundred Club, then go down the street to see a movie.

Day 3 - Woods Hole, Barnstable, Hyannis


Woods Hole is known best for two things - its marine science institutions and the fact that the ferry leaves from Woods Hole for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. These two quaint islands are worth a visit. If you don't get on the ferry, at least hit the seas on a whale watching boat out of Hyannis. Another option would be to go deep sea fishing. Stick around Hyannis for some night life, which can be hard to find in smaller beach towns on the cape.

Day 4 - Harwich Port, Brewster, Wellfleet, Harwich


Start your day off right with a melt-away and a coffee from Bonatt's Bakery. Take it to go, or stay and have a hearty egg breakfast. Enjoy the cape wildlife by going on a Wednesday Walk and explore the Cape Cod National Seashore. Get seafood at Twenty Eight Atlantic, then don't miss the ice cream at Sundae School.

Day 5 - Dennis


Another way to take in the sights of the Cape is to bike or walk the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Dining in Chatham is very good, but pricier and fancier than other towns.
