Museums and Monuments

Art and history fans will not be disappointed with Cape Cod. The area is well-known for its many museums and monuments.

Pilgrim Monument

Provincetown was where the Pilgrims initially first anchored the Mayflower in 1620. The Pilgrim Monument rises over the quaint Provincetown skyline to honor the Pilgrim’s first landing. It was modeled after the Torre del Mangia in Italy and is a must-see for history lovers.

Sandwich Glass Museum

This museum was originally the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company facility. It was preserved at the turn of the century by Sandwich Historical Society and is now a museum. It boasts both modern and historical displays of glass art. In addition, guests can enjoy live glass-blowing demonstrations.

Weather

In the summer months, from June through September, the temperatures vary from the 50s to the low 80s. Cool ocean breezes and warm waters make these months the best ones to visit. From October through November, temperatures start to drop to the 50s and 60s. Although it is a bit chilly to swim, the weather is perfect for sightseeing during the fall.

                                                            I am honestly in love with the house. When I saw the pictures I was ready for a nice and simple house but to my surprise the house was more than nice and simply great. From the entrance of the house, the yard, BBQ, terrace outside and porch. The fireplace is a huge plus it helps to keep the house at a nice temperature. The full equipped kitchen has everything you can think of needing. in all honestly the pictures do no justice to this beautiful home. I cant way to visit again.
