Cape Cod, Massachusetts

When you reach Race Point at the tip of Cape Cod, you might feel you’ve come to the end of the earth. Beyond this long, thin crook of glacial sand lies the broad Atlantic, stretching all the way to Portugal. The Cape’s fishing fleets haul the sweetest scallops and richest tuna; virtually every cove harbors a hamlet founded by farmers whose grandchildren turned to the sea. Its beaches extend for 30 miles (48 km), from Chatham to Provincetown, comfortably accommodating the thousands of swimmers and sunbathers who flock here.Cape Cod Welcome Center • Jct.
