Splashing up some fun in nautical West Yarmouth

Nothing says nautical life quite like Cape Cod. In West Yarmouth, the air is perfectly crisp, the seawater salty, and the attitude friendly and relaxed. It's the spirit of the sea, brought to life in a charming village that makes up the town of Yarmouth. Dating back centuries, it's an area that marries history with modernity, something you'll quickly understand when you spot old-world homes settled alongside antique boutiques and souvenir shops. Of course, if you love seafood you'll need to nosh on some while gazing at the waterÑit's really the only way to "do" West Yarmouth.

See food by the water's edge

You can't book a West Yarmouth vacation rental without enjoying at least 1 meal along the water's edge. The Skipper Restaurant and Chowder House opened in 1936 and is an area institution. Burn off the calories by wandering the quaint gift and consignment shops downtown. From the annual summer kickoff celebration to the seaside festival, there's always a fun social event happening. If it's water adventures you crave, hop aboard a fishing charter and experience Cape Cod up close and personal. And don't miss the Captain's Mile Walking Tour, which gives you a taste of 18th- and 19th-century Yarmouth.

Things are really blowing up in West Yarmouth

A family-friendly coastal treasure, Cape Cod Inflatable Park is a theme park unlike any other. It's filled with a combination of wet and dry inflatables, like slides and bounce houses. Just as fun is the Wild Animal Lagoon, where you'll play miniature golf alongside oversized hippo, giraffe, and other wildlife sculptures. If you're inspired by the seafarer's way of life, pay a visit to The Edward Gorey House and learn all about the originalÑa sea captain whose legacy is honored within the hallowed rooms of this living history museum.

Heating up and cooling down in the Cape

It's always sunny in Cape CodÉ right? That's true for most of the year, but don't be surprised when you encounter true maritime conditions by the water's edge. It's usually cool, breezy, and pleasant. There's plenty of rain and a reasonable amount of snowfall in the winter, particularly in January and February. When summer arrives, you'll enjoy temperatures in the high 70s. If you're packing for your West Yarmouth vacation rental during these months, you'll need a cardigan and a lightweight jacket to endure slightly brisk evenings.

Water, water, here, there and everywhere

The south end of West Yarmouth is a vision, offering splendid views of Nantucket Sound. On the sides are Hyannis and South Yarmouth. Beach life is everything in West Yarmouth, which you'll discover quickly after happening upon cozy Englewood Beach. It's a family-friendly spot with gentle waves that extend from a cove on Lewis Bay. The plush white sands of Seagull Beach offer a safe and fun environment for the whole family. Typical of the Cape Cod region, you may get lucky and spot a sea turtle or seal while roaming the beaches.
