Putter's Paradise

The spouting white whale is this mini-golf course's signature. The "mini Pebble Beach" of Cape Cod. Serving Gifford's famous ice cream.

Reviewed By Michael M - Crestwood, Kentucky

This miniature golf course was right next to our Cape Cod hotel (the Tidewater Inn), so we saw it right away when we reached Cape Cod. Being as to how miniature golf is something of an addictive hobby of ours, we targeted it right away as a "must-do".

That said, we honestly weren't expecting too much. The curb appeal from the road wasn't bad - but it just didn't appear to be quite as exciting as some of the other courses. We couldn't have been more wrong! We had an absolute blast on this course, which was challenging and different. The owner told us about how he started out with the course a few decades back - and how there were no trees (he planted them all) and everything was bare. Now, the course is pretty well-shaded (a definite plus since we played in the afternoon, when there was not much of a crowd - but when it was really hot!).

In the afternoon, they apparently offer some sweet deals....play a round and get a round free was offered when we went. Not bad at all!

If you don't mind waiting, this is a great place to go in the evening, but it was very popular and had a lot of folks there when we dropped by one night around 9 pm.

The price was reasonable...

ALSO....a big hit with my 19 year old....they sell ice cream. Apparently, a LOT of it. Quite a few choices, too.

Edward Gorey House

Dedicated to the author-illustrator, Edward Gorey, and to raising awareness for animal welfare issues.

Reviewed By CapeCodDiamonds - Barnstable, Massachusetts

Quirky. Bizarre. Delightfully decadent. The man's home is not for sensitive little children and their helicopter parents. The rest of us love the wicked escapades of the Ghashlycrumbs and all Edward Gorey's creatures, many of whom can be seen in various states of demise/repose on windowsills, buried beneath the massive magnolia, or flung across the narrow staircase inside. Everywhere you look there is a Gorey story unfolding in macabre detail. He was a unique one, and his house is the perfect representation of one strange dude. Loved it.

Stopped by Criagville Beach the end of september. It is a beautiful beach that we enjoyed walking on. It must be very crowded in the summer, but mostly enjoyable on a crisp fall day.

My husband and I love finding breweries and wineries in new areas. We were super impressed with cape cod beer! The place is huge with plenty of seating indoors and out. For $5 you get 5 3oz pours of your choice. That’s a steal! The beer was tasty. I enjoyed the Harvest and the porter. This is a great spot to put your phone away and play a board game or enjoy conversation. I’m definitely glad we made a trip here!

This is a nice little museum. It does not cost a lot and does not have a lot to see. The boats inside are pretty cool and it is near the water. There is not much to say about it.

For our daughter's birthday, we bought her and my son the full package, including film. The staff were friendly and helpful, well organized and professional. Both kids loved the experience and had total confidence in the tandem jumpers. Photos and film turned out great, so the memories will last....

Toad Hall Classic Sports Car Museum

Reviewed By justinmaccreery - Nyaungshwe, Myanmar

Bill has been collecting cars for a while and today, he's shares his collection with the public. And what a collection! All of the cars we saw were red and most were of British heritage, with a few Datsun's that Bill used to race tossed in the mix. There was a great selection of Triumphs from a TR4, through the GT6 and a TR6. And some TVR's that are very rare sights nowadays, especially here in the salt-n-snow of the north-east. I had never been up close to a TVR before, and saw a Vixen 2500, as well as a 280i roadster for the first time. MG's were everywhere; an MG-TD, a few B's, including a rubber bumper MG-GT, a MGA and a Sprite. And the Lotus collection was incredible. Most stunning was seeing the Esprit next to what I've always thought of as its predecessor, the Europa; mostly because the Esprit was gargantuan next to all the other mostly diminutive cars of the era, including the Europa, even with its expansive rear-end. A few Jaguars, a Sunbeam, a Lotus 7, an 289 AC Cobra, some Austin Healy's and a convertible Datsun (they made those?) rounded out the collection on display this Sunday afternoon. Defiantly worth the time and the inexpensive cost, I would recommend a visit. And I can't forget to mention Bill, who was a very pleasant chap seemingly thrilled with sharing his collection (and friendly cats) with visitors.

Cape Cod Airfield

Reviewed By piris - Marstons Mills, Massachusetts

We live in Marstons Mills and like many others, love this airport, and are very glad it was saved from being turned into a housing development. It's a huge grassy field where you can go and watch the planes. Yes, the stunt plane is noisy in the summer, but we don't care- like to watch it doing rolls and dives. We also enjoyed watching the skydivers as their chutes opened.

This store is located in an old frame house with creaky wooden floors! It is a gift/home store plus a candy/toy store.
They have nautical home decor and gifts, Christmas ornaments, candles, jewelry, a baby gift section, books, housewares.
Kids love the penny and nickel candies of old! Every kind you can imagine, along with a selection of current and vintage toys.
This is a fun place that I visit whenever I go to Cape Cod!
