Summer Fun in Cape Cod

Summer in Cape Cod
Its beautiful Atlantic beaches and charming New England towns draw thousands of visitors to Cape Cod each year. However, there are many other fantastic ways to celebrate the long, warm days of summer in coastal Massachusetts. From farmers markets and lighthouse tours to music festivals and great seafood, summer in Cape Cod has something fun for everyone.

Wellfleet Restaurant Week
Seafood lovers and foodies flock to the Cape for this annual affair, which has nearly a dozen participating restaurants. Diners enjoy fresh cuisine, prix fixe menus, and special prices at restaurants including Box Lunch Wellfleet, Catch of the Day, Mac’s Shack and more.

Cape Cod Canal Fest
Massachusetts takes its national pride seriously, and the Cape Cod Canal Fest pays homage to its historic roots. This festival runs from July 4th through July 5th, and is located at Buzzards Bay. Festival attendees enjoy street food, fireworks, live music, and wine and beer tasting. Arts and crafts tents provide activities for children, ensuring fun for everyone.

Tales of Cape Cod Lecture Series
For history buffs, listening to tales of old Cape Cod completes a coastal vacation. This lecture series has been taking place annually for over 40 years. It covers topics ranging from notable ship captains and famous Cape Cod residents like Susan B. Anthony to coastal attacks during World War I and the rich history of local Native American tribes. Lectures take place at the Olde Colonial Courthouse in Barnstable, MA.

Cape Cod Melody Tent
Located in Hyannis, MA, the Cape Cod Melody Tent features a diverse series of musicians and bands throughout the summer season. Performers range from the Cape Cod Symphony to contemporary pop singers and rock bands. The Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band, Steve Miller Band, and Lucinda Williams are just a few iconic stars scheduled to make appearances.

Race Point Lighthouse Tour
Cape Cod is world-renowned for its centuries-old lighthouses. Some stand as monuments of shipping days past, but others still serve active duty today, guiding ships to and from shore safely. The Race Point Lighthouse, located in Provincetown, MA, is a charming and historic lighthouse that visitors can walk through. The lighthouse staff opens doors on select Saturdays through the summer to let people proceed on self-guided tours. Photography is permitted, and donations are greatly appreciated.
