Top 5 Must-See Items When You Travel to Cape Cod 

1. Brewster’s Beaches 

Brewster, MA, is an idyllic beach town centrally located on Cape Cod. Our area is brimming with some of the best beaches on the Cape that are perfect for everything from swimming to enjoying the sunset. No matter how you spend it, a trip to Brewster’s beaches is a must when you visit Cape Cod. 

Our favorite way to spend an evening on the beach is to watch the sunset at Breakwater Beach in Brewster, MA. Breakwater Beach is only a half-mile from Candleberry Inn, so it’s the perfect destination for an evening stroll. It’s also one of the only places on the East Coast you can observe the sunset head-on, as the sun sets behind you on most other beaches along the coast. 

2. Martha’s Vineyard

Martha’s Vineyard is the most popular day trip from Cape Cod. This island off the coast of Cape Cod is about two hours from Candleberry Inn. Getting there requires land and sea transportation, but the final destination is well worth it! Martha’s Vineyard boasts a wide variety of things to do. These include fanciful shops, lush beaches, first-class dining, and more. 

A typical day on Martha’s Vineyard might include sampling fresh-seafood dishes at the Fishing Village of Menemsha, stopping by Gay Head lighthouse, then heading to Edgartown for shopping and a delicious meal. Then, head back to the shoreline and take a stroll before catching your ferry back to Cape Cod! 

3. Cape Cod Rail Trail 

There’s no need to leave your exercise regime behind when you travel to Cape Cod! Our mild summertime temperatures and breathtaking views create the perfect environment for an outdoor workout. One of our favorite ways to sweat is with a bike ride on the Cape Cod Rail Trail in Brewster. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is a 25-mile paved bikeway that spans from South Dennis to Wellfleet. This situates Brewster, MA, right in the middle! This trail runs along Cape Cod’s beaches and other beautiful sights. Check the trail map to plan your perfect workout! 

4. Whale Watching on Cape Cod

Whale watching on Cape Cod is one of the most unique experiences you can have! Even travelers who come to the Cape from other coastal cities and towns have never experienced the sea like this before. Primetime for whale watching on Cape Cod is from mid-April to October. During this time, we recommend guests take advantage of whale watching tours in Hyannis and Provincetown. A couple of our favorite tour companies are Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises and Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch
