Visit Cape Cod
Massachusetts is best known for its miles of wide, sandy beaches, whale watching and charming colonial villages and the area around Cape Cod attracts more than 13 million people every summer. The Cape Cod National Seashore stretches more than 40 miles from Provincetown to Chatham and is famous for its horseshoe-shaped dunes, salt marshes, cliffs and woodlands.
Provincetown itself is a leading resort and has been a bustling artists' colony since the early 20th century and has counted the painters Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock and writers Eugene O'Neill and Tennessee Williams among its famous residents.
Chatham is an attractive, upscale community of fine inns, attractive shops and a vibrant fishing industry, while Hyannis is the largest village in Cape Cod and site of the Kennedy dynasty's summer home and the popular Cape Cod Central Railroad.
