With schools being out and summer underway, it’s time for the waterside road trips to begin. Family Destinations Guide published a report that details the best family vacation areas in New England, and a Cape Cod town was featured.
In the northeast, we are fortunate to have several natural attractions including the mountains, lakes, and the Atlantic Ocean. Furthermore, they are in close proximity to each other, making road trips a viable option.
There’s something very exciting about packing up the car and heading out of town during the summer months. In Massachusetts specifically, there are a few quaint spots that get a lot seasonal love between Memorial Day and Labor Day. If you head over the Bourne Bridge, however, you will be on your way to Family Destinations Guide’s best family spot on Cape Cod.
A place they call “A Cape Escape,” Falmouth is filled with summer adventure options. The town borders both the bay and the ocean. For a great kid-friendly option, Family Destinations Guide suggests the Falmouth Heights Motor Lodge. ” It is in a quiet neighborhood, and just a short walk away from the Falmouth Heights beach, vineyard ferries, and the Falmouth Village. The place has a lovely pool and lawn space for refreshing mornings and sun-kissed evenings,” they explain.
Family Food Options
If you venture out for your meals, Moonakis Cafe serves monster-sized pancakes. Next, for lunch, the Pickle Jar Kitchen has a reasonably priced sandwich option for everyone. Lastly, no day is complete without a few scoops of summer ice cream. Smitty’s Homeade offers the perfect Cape summer night vibe.
