Located just over 50 miles southeast of Boston, Cape Cod is a peninsula extending out into the Atlantic Ocean, and is home to cities such as Hyannis, Provincetown, Chatham, and Sandwich. Cape Cod National Seashore offers public access to 40 miles of sandy shoreline along the peninsula’s eastern coast, and maintains 12 self-guided trails and a museum at Salt Pond. Visit the Cape’s famous beaches and spend the day strolling on a boardwalk gazing at the views.

The Outer Cape

The Outer Cape is the northern part of the Cape consisting of towns Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown. Stratified by long bands of white sand and dunes, punctuated by picturesque villages that chain together and are peppered with spaces of natural grandiosity, at an almost wild state. It’s the best area to disconnect from everything while staying connected to what vacations can offer the best of the best: a choice.

The Cape Cod National Seashore, with its beaches, legendary landscape and waves covers the east part of the narrow Outer Cape. Provincetown, which symbolizes liberty and tolerance, vibrates the Northern point of Cape Cod.
