Cape Cod The allure of Cape Cod What is it about “The Cape” that keeps attracting new visitors and calling others to return again and again? In addition to historical significance and quaint byways, the 15 towns of Barnstable County that make up Cape Cod each showcase unique beauty and character. The towns are loosely grouped into four geographic regions. Beginning at the Cape Cod Canal in the town of Bourne, the Upper Cape also includes Falmouth, Sandwich, and Mashpee. Next comes the Mid-Cape area, made up of Barnstable, Yarmouth, and Dennis, followed by the Lower Cape’s Brewster, Harwich, and Chatham. Continuing above the “elbow,” you’ll find Orleans, Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown, which make up the Outer Cape.

Celebrating 400 Years By W. Van Northcross In 2020, the nation will recognize the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the Pilgrims. Cape Cod owns a big part of that story. Many sites memorialize the determination and conviction of these early travelers, who first landed in Provincetown, settled in Plymouth and eventually founded what today is the United States of America.

Mayflower II

4

Mayflower passenger and future Governor of Plymouth Colony William Bradford’s first-person account, Of Plimouth Plantation 1620–1647, contains this historical information: In the 1500s, the King of England broke with the Catholic Church and established the Church of England with him at its head. A persecuted group, known as Separatists, who did not want to follow the Church of England, emigrated to Holland, and in 1617 began planning to move to the New World. The Separatists (eventually called Pilgrims) put up some of their own money but were also dependent on a business deal to finance their pilgrimage. During this same time in America, the native Squanto had been captured by English explorers, from whom he learned English. He later was instrumental in helping the Pilgrims survive their first hard years. The Pilgrims intended to settle in the New York area of the Hudson River, where they had a land grant.

Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth

The Plimoth Grist Mill in Plymouth

In early November 1620, after two grueling months at sea, the Mayflower approached the tip of Cape Cod, farther north than intended. For two days they tried to sail south, but the treacherous waters along the Cape’s outer coast off the present-day Cape Cod National Seashore, forced them to return to the Cape tip’s safe harbor. It was November 11, 1620, when they anchored in what is now Provincetown Harbor. They remained on Cape Cod for five weeks. To establish legal order and to quell growing unrest among the Pilgrims, they wrote and signed the Mayflower Compact. That governing document would become a basis for our country. 5


The Pilgrim Monument overlooking Provincetown Harbor

A group went ashore in a small boat to do laundry. They found clean water at Pilgrim Springs. It was a Monday. From that first Provincetown washing and drying on the beach, Mondays became known as “laundry day” in New England. Exploring the snow-covered area, they discovered an empty native village, now known as Corn Hill in Truro. A skirmish ensued when Myles Standish and his exploratory party came upon Wampanoag natives. Arrows flew and shots were fired, but no one was hit and there were no injuries. Ever since, the Eastham beach has been known as First Encounter Beach. During the winter of 1620-21, the Pilgrims and crew remained onboard the Mayflower, where more than half of them died. The passengers disembarked on March 21, 1621, to occupy what is now Plimoth Plantation. The Pilgrims later established profitable trade with the Dutch from New York. To avoid the treacherous waters off the Outer Cape, the Aptucxet Trading Post was established at Manomet on Buzzards Bay. The Pilgrims brought their goods and produce overland and via the creek where the Cape Cod Canal was later dug. In a few years, the founding Pilgrim families grew, and they were joined by other European settlers. Many of them moved back to Cape Cod, establishing the towns of Sandwich (est. 1637), Barnstable and Yarmouth (both est. 1639) and Eastham (est. 1651), where they traded or purchased land from the natives like Iyannough. Some of the oldest buildings and homes in the country are still found in Cape towns. Many events and 400th Anniversary commemorations are planned. We invite all to explore our nation’s history and perhaps your own family roots. Find a full schedule at Plymouth400inc.org and Provincetown400.com.

The Sandwich Boardwalk across Mill Creek and the Old Harbor Marsh in Sandwich.

Nobska Lighthouse in Falmouth

UPPER CAPE The Cape Cod Canal divides the town of Bourne and is crossed by the Bourne and Sagamore bridges for road traffic and a picturesque railroad bridge. Bourne draws visitors who want to be out on the water for boating and fishing with its beautiful harbors, inlets, and coves. The Cape Cod Canal Bikeway runs along the canal and beckons bicyclists, runners, and those who just want to stroll. Thousands of runners from around the world flock to Falmouth every August for the seven-mile Falmouth Road Race. The scenic seaside route is as much of a draw as the race itself. Bicyclists take advantage of the town’s Shining Sea Bikeway, and anyone can enjoy Nobska Point Light and Spohr Gardens. Falmouth also includes the village of Woods Hole, home to a famous oceanographic institution and to an island ferry dock. Beautiful Sandwich was founded in 1637, making it

capecodgrouptours.com

one of the oldest towns in America. The charming historic district in the center of town boasts the seventeenthcentury Dexter’s Grist Mill among other must-see sights. Also in Sandwich is the largest public garden in Southern New England, Heritage Museums & Gardens. In addition to its miles of ocean beaches and four of the largest freshwater ponds on Cape Cod, Mashpee is home to world-class golf courses. The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe’s annual Powwow in July is not to be missed.

Sandy Neck Lighthouse in Barnstable

MID-CAPE Those seeking a rich blend of history, commerce, and entertainment will find it in the Mid-Cape region. Old King’s Highway, Route 6A, winds along the northern edge, near Cape Cod Bay and forms the largest contiguous historic district in the nation, with sea captains’ houses, historic inns, ancient trees, churches, galleries, and restaurants. On the south side, Route 28 bustles with commercial establishments, family entertainment, shopping, overnight accommodations, and restaurants. The seven villages of the town of Barnstable make it the largest, most populous town on Cape Cod. South of the villages of West Barnstable and Barnstable on Cape Cod Bay, are Centerville, Cotuit, Marstons Mills, Osterville, and Hyannis, on Nantucket Sound, which is the transportation hub for those traveling to and from Cape Cod (by airplane, train, or bus) and a main shopping destination for Cape Codders as well as visitors. Yarmouthport on the north side and South Yarmouth and West Yarmouth on the south make up the town of Yarmouth. Many of the inns along Route 6A in Yarmouthport are

historic houses; worth a visit are the Captain Bangs House Museum, Taylor-Bray Farm, and the Edward Gorey House. Along Route 28 is an array of entertainment options for the whole family, from art exhibits at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod to mini-golf and go-karts. Some of Cape Cod’s best beaches can be found on the shores of Nantucket Sound in West Dennis and Dennisport. Centrally located South Dennis features a favorite summer destination for family dogs, who are not allowed on most Cape beaches in the summer. The Cheryl Malone Fresh Pond dog park gives pooches a place to romp and swim. On the north side of town are the villages of East Dennis and Dennis, which is home to the Cape Cod Museum of Art and the Cape Playhouse, the oldest professional summer theatre in the country.

JUNE Father’s Day Car Show

AUGUST Citizens Bank Pops By The Sea

Hosted by the Greater Hyannis Chamber of Commerce, the annual Father’s Day Car Show draws thousands to view classic cars while shopping, eating, visiting with friends, and making new acquaintances. Hyannis’s Main Street, closed to vehicles, becomes a pedestrian’s delight, complete with street food. Shops and restaurants are open, and the village green offers a large crafts fair.

For more than thirty years, Cape Cod has welcomed the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra, now led by Keith Lockhart, to the Hyannis Village Green for the Citizens Bank Pops by the Sea concert. In addition to its being the most important fundraising event of the year for the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod, Pops by the Sea is Cape Cod’s largest cultural event.

Old Harbor Life-Saving Station off Race Point, Provincetown

OUTER CAPE The Outer Cape features a heady mixture of long, unspoiled beaches; historic sites; miles of trails for bicycling and hiking; a thriving arts community; and top restaurants, many of which serve just-caught seafood. In Orleans, you can cheer on the Firebirds, the hometown team of the Cape Cod Baseball League, after kayaking on Town Cove. Nauset Light is Eastham’s welcoming beacon. The town is home to the Cape Cod National Seashore’s Salt Pond Visitor Center. Open year-round, the center offers a museum, theater, and shop. Wellfleet is known for much more than its famous oysters: There are spectacular ocean beaches to visit, a drive-in movie theater, and the Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary. More than half of the land in Truro lies within the Cape Cod National Seashore. The town is home to more than 10 beaches and to Truro Vineyards, a winery that is open to visitors. At the tip of Cape Cod is one of the region’s liveliest communities. Eclectic eateries and shops share the downtown with inns and art galleries. Provincetown is a happening place, as artists and writers share their home with a gay summer resort scene. Jonathan Young Windmill in Orleans

Harwich

LOWER CAPE The towns that make up the “elbow joint” of the Cape, Brewster, Harwich, and Chatham, each offer unique charms. Chatham on the south attracts thousands of visitors each year, with its lively downtown featuring dozens of shops and restaurants. A landmark lighthouse and ocean views provide a feast for the eyes. In the summer, locals and visitors flock to weekly concerts by the Chatham Band and to Cape Cod Baseball League games of the Anglers. On the northern side of the elbow, Brewster—once a sea captains’ enclave— is now home to inns, galleries, and antiques shops as well as the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, with exhibits and walking trails. Harwich, where you’ll find the Cape Cod Lavender Farm and First Crush Winery, is made up of seven villages. Nantucket Sound beaches and inland ponds offer opportunities for swimming, boating, and relaxation. The village of Harwich Port hosts weekly Port Summer Nights in July and August, featuring live music enjoyed by locals and visitors as they stroll the downtown. The Harwich Cranberry Arts & Music Festival, a two-day September event, offers more than 100 artisans and other vendors, plus food trucks and live music.

MARTHA’S VINEYARD Martha’s Vineyard is an island for every traveler’s taste. Whether visitors seek country stores, sheep farms, and remote, gray-shingled houses—as are found in Aquinnah, Chilmark, and West Tisbury—or fine dining and high-end galleries and shops—that mark the larger villages of Edgartown, Oak Bluffs, and Vineyard Haven—all can find what they seek in a vacation destination. The ferry terminal, with ferries that run to and from Woods Hole, makes Vineyard Haven the transportation and commercial hub of the island.

Brant Point Lighthouse in Nantucket

NANTUCKET

Downtown Nantucket

Nantucket Island, a 30-mile ferry ride to the south of Cape Cod, has preserved much of its history. The whaling capital of the world in the 1800s, Nantucket became prosperous thanks to its fleet. The Nantucket Whaling Museum features both permanent and rotating exhibits of art, artifacts, and other treasures that tell the story of the island’s Golden Age. Side by side with gourmet restaurants and trendy boutiques stand pre-Civil War houses on cobblestone streets that are still shaded by century-old elms. Leaving the downtown area, rural roads wind through residential areas, grassy moors, bogs, and marshes. 14

APRIL The Daffodil Festival on Nantucket From early April through mid-May, more than three million daffodils bloom across the island. The Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce sponsors an annual Daffodil Festival to welcome spring. The April festival features an antique car parade, tailgate picnic, and parades showcasing Daffy Hats, dogs, and children.

We love buses! Tidbits, helpful hints and safety tips for drivers and escorts Cape Cod is an iconic destination made up of 15 towns, unique main streets, narrow streets and byways. • Never drop off on a main street. This causes traffic disruptions and dangerous safety situations. • Never drop off on the left side of any street. • Never drop off in a fire lane or commercial loading zone. Many of our communities have dedicated parking maps that allow for appropriate drop-offs and pickups. Please ask us. These designated areas are generally used to keep traffic flow smooth in busy locations and avoid gridlock with buses waiting for their passengers. Don’t let your engine idle for more than five minutes.

Dropping off – Many towns here have dedicated drop-off spots, and 15 minutes is allowed to load and unload passengers. Then the motorcoach can be moved to a designated parking spot or lot. Staging – Think of this as the waiting time between the bus departing for its destination and when passengers board the bus. Staging areas are where your bus driver will temporarily wait before moving on to the loading area to pick up your group. Loading – Loading time begins when passengers begin to board the bus. We have designated areas designated for the pickup of passengers, which shouldn’t be used for long-term parking or staging. Loading zones in busy areas generally have a time limit of 15 minutes.

Truro Vineyards operates on a 5-acre farm in Truro and invites guests to visit its tasting room and gift shop.
