This month's Cape Cod events calendar features the Rotary Club's Home and Garden Show, opening day of the Cape Cod Maritime Museum's 2019 season, and the big St. Patrick's Day Parade and celebrations.
If spring makes an early appearance this year (fingers crossed for that!), March will be a fantastic month for beachcombing, nature walks, and bike riding, too.
Indoors and out, there are plenty of fun things to do on the Cape in March!

Our Natural History Museum is a wonderful place to visit, especially in March when crowds are virtually non-existent.
Bring the young 'uns to learn all about the animals that make the Cape their home. Take part in a birdwatching excursion. Learn about our toothy denizens of the deep from local shark experts. Spend time exploring the museum's fascinating exhibits and walking the nature trails. There's something for the whole family at CCNMH!

Dust off your dancin' boots and head out to the Brewery for an evening of great music, great brews and tons of heel-tapping fun!
Don't know how to line dance? No problem! The experts will show you how it's done. Then the dance floor opens for everyone (including folks like me who have "two left feet"!) to stomp, slide and boogie to their heart's content.
Oh, I should also mention that the dance lesson and a free pint are included in the cost of admission. :-)
