Making maritime merry in South Yarmouth

It's the innate charm that makes booking a South Yarmouth vacation rental such an attractive proposition. Who wouldn't love to sit along the shores of Cape Cod, gaze at the awe-inspiring sunsets and revel in the surroundings of natural wonders like marshes and head-turning wildlife? Part of Yarmouth, the quaint village dates back centuries and offers plenty of maritime merriment, from dozens of sea-inspired dining establishments to fabulous fishing opportunities to picturesque backdrops. There's plenty for landlubbers to love, too, including history, shops, and family-friendly activities.

If you love nightlife and have to boogie...

If you love nightlife, you'll definitely want to book a South Yarmouth vacation rental and take advantage of the amazing opportunities here. But if you're traveling with the kids, say ahoy to Pirate's Cove for some good-time family fun and mini-golf. Just as enticing are the many boutiques that pepper downtown South YarmouthÑyou'll find everything from jewelry to candles to souvenirs. There are plenty of spas if you want to indulge in a little R&R, too. Don't miss dining at one of the many seafood establishments that overlook Nantucket Sound.

You'll be a big fan of the out-of-this-world views

Dating from 1791, the famed Judah Baker Windmill is one of South Yarmouth's most iconic treasures. It has a distinctive fan shape, with a squat body and a cone roof, and is open throughout summer. The Werner Schmidt Observatory, meanwhile, includes high-end equipment that gives you killer views of the night sky. Just a few minutes west is Whydah Pirate Museum, dedicated to the fascinating history of genuine pirate life. Indulge in some old-fashioned maritime fun at Captain Bangs Hallet House Museum, a 19th-century sea captain's residence.

When snowflakes keep falling on your head

You're in a maritime region, so you may feel cool by the water, then inch inward and reach for your cardigan. As you pack for your South Yarmouth vacation rental, bear in mind the season. Snow and rain mingle with occasional sunshine during winter, while spring leans coolerÑyou may even encounter some snow in April! Highs in the thick of summer fall just shy of 80 degrees, but evening cools down enough that you may want to bring a light wrap or cardigan. Come fall, you're in for a pleasantly cool day and a brisk evening.

Finding charm on the beaches of Nantucket Sound

South Yarmouth is one of several charming villages that make up Yarmouth. It's bordered by the waters of Nantucket Sound to the south, Cape Cod in the north, Barnstable in the west, and Dennis in the east. The Sound is known for its biodiversity. You'll discover everything from sandy beaches to salt marshes. If you have a soft spot for cute birds, watch the sands for a glimpse of a piping plover, or inspect the waters for one of the sea turtles that frequent the Massachusetts coast. When you book a South Yarmouth vacation rental, you'll encounter some stunning wildlife.
