• Cape Cod, Where is this Beautiful Place? It’s Worth the Visit!

    Where is this beautiful place called Cape Cod?

    North of Cape Cod Bay (and Provincetown) is Massachusetts Bay, which contains the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, located 5 miles north of Provincetown. The Atlantic Ocean is to the east of Cape Cod, and to the southwest of the Cape is Buzzards Bay.

    How do you get to Cape Cod? Well, by land, air, sea or in your memories of a visit sometime in your past. It’s quite easy to make a trip to the “Cape”.  Cape Cod is just 75 miles from Logan Airport in Boston, with frequent direct bus travel, or car rentals available. After Memorial Day there is ferry service from Boston to Provincetown, and Jet Blue has seasonal service from Boston to Barnstable Municipal Airport in Hyannis late June through Labor Day.  To visit the Islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard there is daily service from Hyannis.

    Once you cross one of the two bridges over the Cape Cod Canal, Sagamore Bridge or Bourne Bridge, or arrive via air or ferry, you will discover what we who live here already know. Cape Cod is a very special place, surrounded by pristine ocean waters, breathtaking coves and bays, inlets and salt marshes, beaches, bird and sea life.

    Welcome to Cape Cod via the Bourne Bridge.
