The Cape with the Kids



Description:

There are plenty of great things to do with your kids on the cape. They usually can occupy themselves at the beach with sandcastles, but there are many other activities that can be fun for them - and you!

Day 1 - South Yarmouth, Waquoit Bay, Hyannis, Brewster


Get pancakes at Pancake Man in the early morning, then go to the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Reserve and pick from the many activities to do there. Get lunch at Oysters Too (there is a kid's menu) then go on a tour of the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory Tour. After the tour, play a game of mini golf (if it's raining, play arcade games inside). End your day with a great family dinner at Tugboats and ice cream at the Brewster Scoop.

Day 3 - Barnstable, Mashpee, Hyannis


Start your day with a whale watch, leaving from Hyannis. Get a pub lunch at the Dan'l Webster Inn restaurant, then take the kids to the Thorton W Burgess Museum - they'll like this if they've read the Peter Cottontail books. Next, go to the Cape Cod Children's Museum. For dinner, book a table on the Family Supper Train on the Cape Cod Central Railroad. The kids will love dining on a moving train!
