Familiy vacation in Dennisport, what to do

We are 2 families, children aged 1, 4, 7, 9 and 11 years old. July 20th to 27th.

What we HAVE to do, unavoidable activities or ideas if it's raining...

Thanks a lot,

Jodami

All the kids (except the one-year-old) would love the Harwich Junior Theatre performance of "The Little Princess, Sarah Crewe," which will be playing when you're in town. It's a kid-friendly theater in West Harwich, and the shows are professionally done. The website is www.hjtcapecod.org.

Take a drive to Brewster to visit the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History. This is a fun place for the kids, and they have "touch" tanks, where little ones can get an introduction to local critters. The Brewster Store is a good follow-up -- the kids can have an ice cream cone and perhaps buy a memento of the trip (great toys!). Also in Brewster, stop by the old fulling mill and herring run. Kids love jumping between the concrete fish ladders with the water rushing below, and there's a wishing well and a lovely path around the mill and the mill pond.

The beauty of a Cape Cod vacation is that you don't have to DO anything.

There is a large enough age span between all the kids to prove to be a challenge while trying to please everyone! (Can you split the groups up into young and older kids for different activities?) The older kids would probably enjoy a whale watch; this would be a long day for the little ones.

What does your family enjoy the most? The beach? Shopping? Museums? Boats? Fishing, sightseeing, fine food, summer stock?

Read a bit about the Cape and Dennisport on this forum (you can click on the headings to the left of your screen that say: "Before You Go" and "Things to Do")and then come back with specific questions to get the best advice. The Cape is a beautiful place and great for families to visit.
