Cape Cod & The Islands

Explore Cape Cod & The Islands:

The peninsula of Cape Cod juts out into the Atlantic like a flexed arm. Route 6A, the Old King’s Highway, is dotted with craft and art galleries; communities have familiar British names, such as Sandwich, Barnstable, Chatham and Brewster. The are is famous for its rolling dunes and gable-roofed, gray-shingled houses.

At the tip is bohemian Provincetown, long a haunt of actors and artists. It is a delightful town full of quirky shops and interesting restaurants as well as a wealth of galleries and artists’ studios.

Hyannis, known for its lovely beaches, is the largest town on Cape Cod and makes a good base for exploring the area. It is also a transportation hub as it is from here that you take the ferry across to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. You can enjoy a harbour cruise or go deep sea fishing, rent a sail boat or almost any other kind of water activity. It is a pretty town with a very good choice of accommodation and restaurants as well as a thriving arts scene with several museums including the John F Kennedy Hyannis Museum.

Please accept my thanks for organising our trip to New England etc. All arrangements worked exactly as arranged and we were particularly pleased with the standard of hotels used.
The itinerary too was good and we loved Kennebunkport, Stowe and Jackson. We were well looked after in all locations, although slightly less so at Von Trapp hotel that was less personal because of their size, but the experience itself was welcome.
