Cataumet Light Mini Golf

Gorgeous mini golf course, maybe the nicest we've ever been too. Cute little community of shacks with ice cream or candy (or beer!). Very clean, plenty of parking. Glad we found this place, it's worth the drive.

Cape Cod Canal Cruises

Reviewed By lbene351 - Boston, Massachusetts

We were looking for something to do to end the summer season and this was a great choice! The Great-grands (ages 5 and 3) loved this ride....it was a very informative, narrated ride which lasted two hours....comfortable for everyone because the kids sat down while we took off and landed, but they were able to walk the deck with us once we were on our way and that they liked! They stood at the rail which made it perfect for them to see the water and the boats that went by. Note: There are restrooms below deck and a snack bar as well. Great family trip - you will have a great time!

Heritage Museums & Gardens

You can enjoy more than 70 acres of gardens after visiting the art and history museums at the Heritage.

Reviewed By MEC15_12 - Sandwich, Massachusetts

Purchased 6 VIP tickets for Gardens Aglow and glad we did. The The tickets allowed us to get VIP parking and early entry into the gardens 1 1/2 before it was open to the public. We were able to walk the beautiful grounds, have our grandchildren meet with Santa and Mrs. Claus and ride the Merry -go -round without any waiting lines or crowds. It was a wonderful night of fun for both the children and the adults in our group. We will definitely go again and especially purchase the VIP tickets. The line of cars and those being dropped off by busses were incredibly long as we were leaving so we were very grateful that we had the time without the crowds.

I enjoy accompanying my wife here. She loves going in the stores. I go in and come right out. Very little for men. But good place to take a walk, look at restaurant menus and sit on a bench.

Water Wizz

Reviewed By DonnaD1975 - Swansea, Massachusetts

I have never been to Water Wizz. I rented a Deluxe Cabana for today for $132. It's 12:40 p.m. and the temperature at Water Wizz is 64 degrees. Did not go to Water Wizz due to temperature, overcast and a chance of rain. Water Wizz did not close so everyone that rented a cabana and didn't go because of weather didn't get to change the cabana date...we all just lost our money. I spoke to someone who may have been the owner and she said she had received at least 20 calls and was not very accommodating. My advice is to not buy your tickets in advance or rent a cabana....or maybe skip Water Wizz all together (adult tickets are $37). I am wondering if greed may play a part in their decision to keep the park open today...this is just my opinion. This may be a family park but not very family friendly. I was bringing two children but would definitely not want them to ride on water rides on a 64 degree day. The temperature may climb later in the day to a whopping 66 degrees. But, with no sun even 66 degrees is cold. I was told they closed the park approximately two weeks ago when the temperature was 64 degrees...but open today when the temperature is 64 degrees...??? I would not recommend Water Wizz to anyone.

Perfect setting for a great day for a walk or bike ride. 7 miles up and 7 miles back is just enough for the new biker or older one. Many places to stop and rest. Views are beautiful. Perfect place to be with friends family

The Cataumet Arts Center

Reviewed By CelticRambler - Florida

Cape Cod has some famous places - including some that are much overrated - and, then, it has some nice little places that the tourists overlook.... The little villages in the town of Bourne are in the second category. There's nothing fancy or exciting about Cataumet and her sisters. The Arts Center is very good, sometimes, but there are other arts centers in the region that are also very good.... As another writer said when reviewing the Arts Center, it's just "a lovely little place." If you're in a rush, and you can't enjoy that fact, you need a vacation.

Route 6A (The Old King's Highway)

Route 6A, which is on the northern, or bay side, of Cape Cod, winds its way through some of the oldest villages in America, including Bourne, Sandwich, Barnstable, Yarmouth, Dennis, Brewster and Orleans. Many of the homes and churches along this tree-shaded road are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.If you are interested in seeing what Cape Cod looked like before tourists discovered it, and want to visit some of the best quaint, little shops in New England, Route 6A is the place to be.

Reviewed By Ellie V - East Hartford, Connecticut

Since we were staying on 6A, we did a lot of traveling up and down this road, through several lovely towns along the way. This is more for a scenic, less-rushed sort of driving around. Of course this is the end of the season, so I'm sure there were a lot less cars now during the summer months.

Shell Point Beach

Reviewed By russelldefense - Onset, Massachusetts

One side of the point is the bay, and the other is the channel to Sunset Cove. Onset Beach is protected by the two islands sitting in Onset Bay, and the result is one of he most pleasant and family friendly beaches on Cape Cod (yes, the cape still starts before the bridges); Shell Pint is the best spot on a great beach.

Cape Cod Kayak

Reviewed By Elfinlouise - Sydney, Australia

We wanted to explore Cape Cod by kayak and foolishly assumed we could simply hire the kayaks and get out on the waterways.
The company doesn't show the range of kayaks on its website and, because they're not based on the water and so have to load and drive kayaks down to the water, will only take reservations not walk in requests. This makes it a little tricky to know what type of kayak you can hire before you get to the shop. And as strangers to the area and unable to find any decent waterway maps it's also difficult to determine exactly where you can kayak. The Cape has lots of private beaches and restricted areas, you can't just throw your boat in the water as we are used to doing.
The company could work better with tourists if they improved their website, offered different pick up and drop off sites so you could explore more waterways and provided maps of the area. The woman in the store was helpful but could only hand draw a very rough map.
