The salt from the ocean can be felt in the air, the picturesque landscape makes you feel as if you are in another world, and the beaches are unlike anything you have ever experienced. No, you have not been transported to a different land. New England’s magic has long brought hundreds and hundreds of tourists up to Cape Cod rentals for a summer getaway, and it isn’t hard to see why. With so much to take in and experience it can be overwhelming trying to decide just what you should experience while on vacation in Cape Cod, but here are some of the top things you absolutely must do while visiting the beloved New England hot-spot.

Take in the Sights by Kayak

There really is no better way to see the sights than from the water, according to ABC News. The sights and beauty of Cape Cod are never really experienced until you are down in the water taking it all in from an ocean view. There are plenty of kayak tours in Cape Cod that will lead you through Nanuet Marsh and past the beaches. It is rumored that on these tours you may even get to see some seals, according to ABC.

The Rail Trail

If you are looking to get out and be active while on your trip without spending a dime, then look no further than the Cape Cod Rail Trail, voted the number one thing to do in Cape Cod by U.S. News Travel. The trail is 22-miles of paved paths that you can bike, rollerblade, walk, or even ride a horse down, all while taking in the beautiful scenery. This isn’t just any old walking path; U.S. News Travel claims that the Rail Trail is one of the best trails in all of New England, certainly a statement that demands a trip! If you are interested in the railroad history of the trail, it is said that you can still find bits of the track if you go off trail and are willing to hunt a bit.

A Piece of History

Just a hop, skip, and a jump in Hyannis is the John F. Kennedy Museum, and ABC insists it is an absolute must visit if you will be vacationing in Cape Cod. At the museum you will get to look back in time at JFK’s time on Cape Cod with his family. The museum is a great option for an afternoon outing while on your trip.

Something for Everyone

Everyone loves a crowd pleaser and no matter where you end up finding your Cape Cod rentals you absolutely must take a trip over to Sandwich to visit the Heritage Museums and Gardens. It really does have something for everyone with the J.K. Lilly III Antique Automobile Collection for the car lovers, the American folk art collection for the art lovers, an antique carousel for the kids, and more than 100 acres of gardens for everyone to enjoy.

Your trip to Cape Cod will be something to treasure and remember for a lifetime. Plan ahead and decide what attractions you will be visiting so you do not get overwhelmed by all there is to see and do, and don’t worry if you can’t experience it all—you can always go back again next year!
