Vacation Planning Basics ...

Hello! I'm Dee, your local guide to budget-friendly vacationing in beautiful Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

In my years on "The Cape" (first as an awe-struck tourist, and now as a part-time resident), I've discovered, first-hand, why Cape Cod is a favorite get-away-from-it-all destination for the rich and famous.

Thankfully, I've also learned how to enjoy all this very special place has to offer,  without sending our family's finances over the cliff ;-)

Budget-Friendly Cape Cod Vacations

You, too, can experience everything that's so wonderful about Cape Cod, on a vacation budget that works for you ...

The best Cape Cod beach vacations begin with budget-friendly waterfront accommodations! 

Top choices range from incredibly inexpensive oceanfront camping to moderately priced hotels and vacation rentals only steps from the water's edge.  

It's easy to see why the famous "Dr. Beach" regularly names Cape Cod on his Top 10 Beaches  list!  From toddlers to teens, singles to seniors, there's a perfect Cape Cod beach for every visitor.

Better still: you can visit most of our public beaches admission-free, year round. (Here's how ... )

Rest assured, you'll never lack for fun and interesting places to visit and things to do here on the Cape, no matter what time of year you visit.

Here are 22 Free Activities and Attractions to get you started ... and Special Events to round out your stay.

With a few discount passes and local coupons in your pocket, you'll save a good chunk of change on area attractions, restaurants and shopping.
