Waterfront fun in Mashpee

Getting out on the waves is a must during a stay in Cape Cod, and Mashpee is a great spot to go kayaking and canoeing along the coastal waterways. Local vendors are on hand to equip you with boats and boards for all your paddling adventures, perfect for exploring on your own, or you can choose to join excursions, guided by experts, who will take you around the bays and rivers. Consider a tour in the late afternoon to catch the sky changing into dramatic shades of pink and orange as the sun sets over the offshore islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

Museums for all in Mashpee

With all the gorgeous sandy beaches, it may be hard to step away from the waterfront in Mashpee, but the town also offers some fun cultural and family-friendly attractions when you need a break from the sun. At the Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Museum, you can check out ancient artifacts and heirlooms from the tribe in an old Cape Cod house that dates back to the 1700s, while the Cahoon Museum of American Art has changing exhibits in a Colonial Georgian-style home. If you're traveling with kids, be sure to check out the Cape Cod Children's Museum, which offers sensory experiences to encourage creativity and play.

Sun-soaked summers in Mashpee

Nothing beats summertime in Mashpee, with the sun beaming down on the white sandy beaches, and the long days spent taking a ferry ride to offshore islands or kayaking around the bays. The months between Memorial Day and Labor Day are popular on Cape Cod, thanks to the warm, 80-degree afternoons, so if you plan to visit during this time, you'll want to reserve your Mashpee vacation rental early, especially if you're looking for a prime, waterfront property. Late spring and early fall can be pleasant for hiking and visiting the attractions that stay open when the crowds leave.
