5 Fun Things to do on Cape Cod Before the Summer Rush
ONE: Whale Watching
Watching a whale breach actually takes your breath away; it’s truly a miracle of nature. People come from all over the world just to experience these amazing creatures. Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises offer several cruises daily and leaves from historic Barnstable Harbor just a few miles from the Inn. Check out our special discounted whale watching ticket offering which can be added to any stay.
TWO: Theater and Music Events
Did you know that Cape Cod has a bustling arts community? We are lucky to have some of the oldest theaters and theater companies in the country sharing their talents with the community. As staunch supporters of the Arts, you’ll often find opening night specials that combine discounted tickets with your room rates. The Cape Playhouse season ramps up in June and is often called the theater where “Broadway goes to Summer.”
THREE: Heritage Museum and Gardens
The Heritage Museum and Garden, is located on the banks of the Shawme Pond in nearby Sandwich. The museum is home to over 100 varieties of Rhododendron plants. This annual festival begins in mid-May and beckons visitors to learn the history and care of these vibrant and early bloomers. Taught by expert horticulturalists and gardeners, guests are bound to leave with more knowledge about “Rhodies” than when they arrived. There are lectures, hands-on events and a free walking tour with your museum admission. Because flowers make us happy, it’s a wonderful way to welcome Spring during your Cape Cod getaway.
FOUR: Father’s Day Car Show
This annual event, brings car lovers and owner’s from across the country to view and marvel at over 300 antique cars as well as lovingly restored vehicles of all types. The Hyannis Car Show will be held this year on June 21. Many fun activities for families of all ages. Best of all, it’s free!
FIVE: Treat Mom to a Getaway at the Inn at Yarmouth Port
Spring is the perfect time to head to the Inn and enjoy the outdoor fire table with your travelling companion and your favorite beverage. It’s also the perfect treat for your mom! Travel together or give her a gift certificate for a getaway she won’t soon forget. The perennial gardens are beginning to bloom and the crisp, salt air breezes make you appreciate the season.
