Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Whether or not you’re into American history, you can enjoy the sun and surf on Cape Cod, the same place the Pilgrims decided to drop anchors in 1620 (sorry, Plymouth Rock). You can have your own sailing adventure by placing a call to the Cape Cod Sailing School in Cataumet, or if you’d rather hit the waves solo, you could swing through Cape Cod Windsurfing in North Falmouth. No trip to the Cape is complete without some fried clams, and we hear the best are at Marathon Seafood in West Dennis.
