All reviews spiral staircase easy climb great view cape cod bay pilgrim monument highest point quick stop short climb pretty view vantage point great stop parking lot plymouth princess ocean tobey metal
During my trip I found it quite a common occurrence.... you will need a GPS or directions from a local to find this landmark. Maybe a Cape Cod thing? Anyway, it's not well marked so take your time looking for street signs.
Not much here,...More
The view from the tower is very pretty. Watch out for signs since it is easy to miss the turn off. No facilities just a tower and spots for a few cars to park. Worth a few minutes if you are in the area-- it...More
The tower sits on a high hill so you have quite a view from land. Inside the tower are stairs (quite a few) that lead to the top where you have spectacular views. So even if some people in your party can't climb the tower...More
A must do if you are anywhere near Dennis at dusk, it’s free and a great way to spend time during the setting sun. Not a large park but there is free parking. Tip: come early to get a parking spot and a viewing place...More
Trip Report: Fish Chowda and other Tales from the Cape (8 Replies)
Well, as promised I found some great fish chowder on the cape. If you'll recall shortly before I left I asked if anyone knew a good place for fish (not shellfish) chowder. All I got was a recipe (and a darn good one) -- thank you, yellowbird -- but I didn't want to cook on vacation. So I found a few: Seafood Sam's in Yarmouth. As the regulars will know it's a bit of a dive. You order at the counter, then find a seat and they bring you your food. Fish chowder was great. The Boxed...More

Sounds like you had a great vacation. I've been to other Hearth and Kettles and haven't had an issue ...

First time visiting in a few days! (10 Replies)
Hello! I will be visiting Cape Cod with my girlfriend for a few days this week. It's the first time we are traveling together (saved a while for a decent budget!) so we are going to have a great time regardless. That said I have seen so many great advice here that I figure I can get a few more opinions more catered to my plan. We will rent a car out of Boston in mid-morning Thursday around 10. We will be staying in Top Mast of Truro, checking out Saturday morning, so we essentially have 1...More

Take Art's Dune Tour out of Provincetown. Consider visiting Highland light in Truro. Go to the monument and museum in Ptown. The climb to the top of the monument is not strenuous, but even if you do not climb...the view from the grounds is good. Eat scallops at any restaurant ... Don't need the scallop fest for that ;). You are doing a lot of traversing up and down cape. The Cape Cod national seashore has lots to offer in terms of scenic vistas and easy walks. It makes no sense to stay...More
Feedback on this itinerary? (53 Replies)
We are planning a family vacation to Cape Cod in July. I've never been to the area before, so I only know what I've been reading in these forums. We will be flying from Jax, Fl into Boston. We will probably stay in either South Yarmouth or Dennis. Here is the itinerary I've come up with so far - does this look do-able? Am I missing anything big? We are a family of 7 - with children ages 2, 9, 10, 10, and 17. Day 1 Fly into Boston, do Boston things - stay overnight Day 2 do more...More

I'm exhausted reading all that !! You may want to rethink some of the activities. Some are not very suitable for a two year old. The whale watch for instance. Do you really want to drive to Provincetown two days in a row?
