Pet Friendly Cape Cod

There is no other place to visit with your pet like Cape Cod. Its history is grounded in the marine industry, and scenic harbors and lighthouses abound. The smell of the sea permiates through the air. Gift and country stores are always around the bend on Route 6A which runs the length of the bay side of the Cape to Provincetown. This is a must-do while visiting Cape Cod.

Pet friendly Cape Cod beaches

Aside from the natural beauty of the Cape, there is plenty to do. Cape Cod's beaches are one of its best resources. With over 560 miles of coastline, there is something for everyone. Those on the northwest side of the Cape are endless at low tide providing lots of fun for families. Those beaches on the southern side are for the teens with rougher seas and surfing. Pets are allowed on many beaches on Cape Cod during the off season or before 9:00AM and after 6:00PM. Be sure and check before packing your dog in the car with your picnic.

Cape Cod lighthouses

Not into the sand and sun? There are plenty of walking trails, kayaking, biking trails, theatre productions, golf, and shopping. Wander through numerous museums, both maritime and historic, many former sea captains' homes, historic lighthouses and exhibits of Native American artifacts. How about whale watching or winery touring, or just an old fashioned clam bake?
