Cape Cod’s beaches are known as some of the most beautiful in the world, and with these right on your doorstep, as well as a wealth of outdoor activities, it’s easy to see why Dennis attracts the affluent for summer vacations, as well as families with younger children looking for a relaxing break.

What to do

Get out and about in the Cape Cod sunshine and explore the Cape Cod Rail Trail. This former railroad is the perfect spot for walking and biking, running for 22 miles to Wellfleet. Other outdoor activities include golfing at Dennis Pines or Dennis Highlands, as well as fishing, kayaking, jet skiing and parasailing.

Sea Street Beach in Dennis Port is the perfect place to take the kids – it’s small, peaceful and family-friendly. Or head for Cape Cod Inflatable Water Park in West Yarmouth for a fun family day out.

For art and culture, Cape Cod Museum of Art and the Discovery Museum are both worth visits, while Fritz Glass is the place to head for glassblowing demonstrations and the opportunity to buy unique souvenirs. Catch a show at the Cape Playhouse, which has hosted performers such as Humphrey Bogart and Bette Davis!
