My vote is for the Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch of Provincetown. Provincetown, at the tip of Cape Cod, is about 50-60 min away from my home in the mid-Cape. There are whale watch companies right here where I live, but I choose to drive the distance b/c I think they are the best. I think they've been doing the whale watches the longest of all the boats around here.

Another suggestion txbaker27 if you are a fan of fish and chips, then you have to visit Captain Frosty's on Rt 6A in Dennis, Mass. They are very well regarded as having the best clams, fish and chips, lobster rolls, etc. Everything is fresh, fresh, fresh! Worth the trip!

Yes very much a fan!!! I will make a note of this place and make sure to stop by!!! I really cant wait to get back for a big oh lobster roll!!!!!!!! No one around here has ever had one before so I had to order some of the famous "new england rolls" off of a website i googled (because no other bread will taste right) We made some for friends and family and the loved it. For a brief moment I was back in MA!!!!

There's a company out of Barnstable Harbor that has a great boat for whale watching as well...I've gone a few times and it's been wonderful. Great staff too.

You have to see the National Seashore...if you're anywhere near Falmouth check out Nobska Point. You can take the Island Queen to Martha's Vineyard and be there in about a half an hour...go for breakfast and shop around...it's busy, but a fun atmosphere. The south side of the Cape has the warmer water...Falmouth Heights beach is usually warm...Old Silver beach is awesome (I believe it's West Falmouth). Osterville is quaint...drive through there if you can...some gorgeous old mansions on the water.

Oh...hands down the BEST fish and chips I've ever had is Kreme and Kone on Rt. 28 in Dennis...you will NOT be sorry...and their chowder is delish. OMG I would love some right now.

DM me if you want any more info...I was born, raised, and lived on the Cape for over 40 years...I would be happy to offer you any assistance.

Enjoy your trip

Default Nantucket

take the time to take the Ferry out of Hyannis to Nantucket. The shopping is great and they have quite a few good restuarants also.When you get back to the mainland go to Sea Gull beach in yarmouth. It is a beautiful beach. We also like to go to Four Seas Ice cream shop in Centerville. It is the bast place for ice Cream

Txbaker27, definitely check out Four Seas icecream. It is some good !!! I think they've been in business for 70 yrs. I'm not really sure, but the icecream is excellent. Very rich. You are going to have to let us know how it compares to Blue Bell down in Texas.
