    Two sides to Dennis' Cape Cod

    Expect a real choice of style and budget when it comes to Dennis vacation rentals. You could say that the story of Dennis is a tale of 2 coasts and 5 villages. Tour the north-facing side of this Cape Cod town and you'll be spoilt by quaint restaurants, cobbled stone towers, storied restaurants, and historic playhouses. The south coast is home to some fabulous sandy beaches. This area is more about the fun than the theater, and more mini golf than exclusive club houses. But whichever way you face, the swell of the Atlantic is never far away.

    Dennis—twice the coast, twice the fun

    With so much coast spreading both north and south, the call of the Atlantic is hard to ignore. Some of Dennis' beaches are full-on, curling with breaking surf. Others are sheltered delights; perfect for paddling with the kids. Swimming is best done in high summer, but sport angling brings its silvery rewards throughout the year. Golf is big here, with silky sanded dunes adding an extra challenge to your play. Families might prefer to spend the afternoon with a game of mini golf, or to go full throttle at a go-karting venue.

    Cape Cod culture in Dennis

    Whichever side of Cape Cod your Dennis vacation rentals lie, you'll find that most attractions are less than a half-hour's drive away. The Cape Cod Museum of Art is renowned for its rich seascapes by local artists. Catch more culture at The Cape Playhouse, one of the oldest summer theaters in the country. They also put on amazing fun shows for the kids, too. The nearby Scargo Tower is a stone-built monument with a primal look, poking up from Dennis' highest point. Climb it and you’ll be rewarded with a stunning view running around Cape Cod Bay.

    Dennis—the ideal vacation destination all year round

    As in the rest of Cape Cod, those checking the weather in Dennis tend to look out to sea. The Atlantic has a big part to play in the area's climate. Springs here tend to take a while to shake off their winter trappings. Summers, though, tend not to be too hot, thanks to cooling sea breezes. If you're looking to time those Dennis vacation rentals for when the sea is nicely paddle-able, look to the summer and fall months that all offer a good balance of warm waters and uncrowded beaches.

    Dennis—the natural heart of the Cod

    Dennis is considered as Cape Cod central, since it straddles the middle of Massachusetts' most famous peninsular, tucked between Yarmouth to the west and Harwich to the east. There are beach dunes piled both north and south, pierced by deep-cut saltmarsh inlets. Freshwater lakes are scattered inland, meaning there are plenty of idyllic spots to idle away the day. At the nearby Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, you might just be gifted with the water-beaded smiling face of an otter. But for the truly big wildlife prizes, join a whale-watching cruise on a whale-watching expedition from nearby Hyannis.
