Admittedly, one of the best reasons for visiting Cape Cod is to get a heady dose of romance; but there's so much more to the Cape. Cape Cod offers so many other fun things to see and do, it's hard to know where to start. Our top choice is Cape Cod Airfield, where you can go skydiving or take an exhilarating biplane ride. The Cape Cod Airfield is home to 21 private planes, a thriving skydiving and glider business, and over 80 acres of beautiful, open meadows. Whether you want to ride in a plane, jump out of one or just watch them from the ground, this is the place to come. It's worth noting that the Cape Cod Airfield has been around since the 1920s and is Cape Cod's only sky-dive jump spot.
Have fun with spuds, join the Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory Tour. Cape Cod potato chips are so greasy, you can almost see through them. But the unique kettle-cooking method is what makes these famous chips so popular. You can watch the whole process, from peeling to cooking to bagging, at the factory's free, self-guided tour. In fact, they will pay you -- you get a free bag of chips at the end of the tour.
For a truly breathtaking experience, check out the Hyannis Whale Watchers Cruises. A whale watch is a must when visiting Cape Cod. Step aboard a 100-foot boat and travel past the Cape Cod National Seashore to the open ocean. The boats concentrate on an area known as the Stellwagen Bank, a deep fissure in the ocean floor that is home to a favorite whale delicacy, the sand eel. Naturalists narrate during the cruises. There is a snack bar on board and passengers can bring their own picnic. With these fun to do things in Cape Cod, you'll have the adventure of a lifetime.
