It was a long winter and is starting to feel like an even longer Spring. While the stay-at-home order is still in place, there are still a number of activities, right here on Cape Cod to help you get out and shake your cabin fever. Below you’ll find a number of activities to help get outside, get grounded, and enjoy the fresh spring air.
Cape Cod Rail Trail
This 22-mile trail spans from South Dennis to South Wellfleet. Along this trail, you’ll pass through lakes, beaches, ponds, and through the forests, full of native Cape Cod vegetation. This trail is great for all bikers, runners, and leisurely walkers. On the trail, you’ll be able to observe nature in its true element and the scenic views and fascinating wildlife.
Explore The National Sea Shore
Walk the vast beaches of the National Seashore. Witness the open ocean in all her glory, with powerful and unpredictable waves, you never know what you’ll find washed up on the shores. As part of the national seashore, there are several beaches to choose from. Spanning from Chatham to Provincetown, a few of these notorious beaches include Nauset Light House Beach, Marconi Beach, and Herring Cove Beach.
Dog Parks For Our Furry Friends
Dogs are a great excuse to get us out of the house. If you’re tired of the same walking routine, switch it up and check out one of Cape Cods’ many Dog Parks. A few of the top dog parks on the Cape include Cheryl Malone Fresh Pond Dog Park, located in South Dennis. Here you’ll find a gated sanctuary, where shade is prevalent. While you’re there, feel free to sit and relax next to the freshwater pond, while your dog has a “ball”… Pun-intended. The next park up is Drummer Boy Park, in Brewster. This wide-open field located a short distance from Cape Cod Bay has something for everyone and acres of fields that your dog will love. Last, but not least is the Yarmouth Dog Park. This gated park creates a relaxing environment for dog owners, with picnic tables, and size-appropriate areas. This park is great for dogs of all shapes and sizes.
Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge
Enjoy a walk along the beach, while observing the natural habitats of thousands of species of birds, animals, and insects. Don’t miss the decommissioned lighthouse, while you’re here. These 7,600 acres of protected land is a special place where you can get your exercise, disconnect, and bask in the natural beauty of Cape Cod wildlife, year-round.
