Top Rated Attractions in Cape Cod

Search Radius (Miles)
Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises

A whale watch is a must when visiting Cape Cod. Step aboard a 100-foot boat and travel past the Cape Cod National Seashore to the open ocean. The boats concentrate on an area known as the Stellwagen Bank - a deep fissure in the ocean floor that is home to a favorite whale delicacy, the sand eel. Naturalists narrate during the cruises. There is a snack bar on board and passengers can bring their own picnic. The trip takes about four hours.

Scargo Tower

This brick tower is not remarkable for its architecture; it does, however, have a great view. Located on top of the 160-foot (50-meter) Scargo Hill in Dennis (the highest point on the Cape), a clear day allows views of the Provincetown Monument and mainland Massachusetts. In almost any weather condition you can see Scargo Lake, which was named after a Native American princess. You may find it a romantic spot too, especially for sunsets and star gazing.

John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum

Chronicling the history of the Kennedy family, this museum offers a glimpse into the life of the 35th President through video and photo displays. Featuring an ornate interior, the museum is replete with memorabilia and other informative objects. It is one of the most prominent attractions on the peninsula.

Hyannis Village Green

Hyannis Village Green is a venue which boasts of many musical and cultural events. Many event organizers in the village of Hyannis host their outdoor entertainment shows here. This place is well accessible as is located on the Main Street. So, look forward for excitement and fun at the Hyannis Village Green. For further details contact the 'Hyannis Main Street Business Improvement District' which takes care of the activities in this area.

Polly Hill Arboretum

Polly Hill started growing trees and plants from seed on the family farm more than 40 years ago, and they all grew to become the island's premier natural showcase. Hill has developed numerous plants now grown around the world; including the famous North Tilsbury Azalea. At the same time she expanded the range of plants on Martha's Vineyard. The requested donation for adults is quite a reasonable amount and children 12 and under may enter for free. Lectures are held throughout the season and tour arrangements may be made in advance.

The Flying Horses Carousel

Since 1884 islanders have enjoyed the beauty of this magnificent carousel. Built by Charles W.F. Dare, it is the nation's oldest platform carousel still in operation. Acquired by the Preservation Trust in 1986, the carousel is a National Historic Landmark. Children and adults alike may enjoy a ride from Easter Sunday through Columbus Day. Rides cost just USD1 and if you catch the brass ring, you ride for free. Video games and refreshments are also available.
