What to do with your family this Summer while in the Upper Cape area
Wondering what to do with your family this Summer while in the Upper Cape area?
How about the Sandwich Marina entrance of the Cape Cod canal!
You can bike!
You can walk! The path is paved and has mile markers. There will be many athletes running and biking. There will also be casual strollers, dogs, and small children riding scooters.
You can pack a cooler and ride for miles until you feel like stopping to fish!
You can check out the Sandwich marina boats with your kids!
There is always cool birds hanging out a the Canal. Sometimes large tug boats come down the canal and you get to watch your two year olds brain explode and slide out of his head.
There is a playground, picnic tables, and bathrooms at the start of the bike path. Going to the playground and then having a picnic lunch after with your family is the best. There is room for the kids to run, play, and see interesting parts of their community. Which is exactly what kids need.
See the construction in the background in the picture of the playground?
That's because they are building a new restaurant that will overlook the marina. You will actually be able to look across the water and see men unloaded the fish they serve. There are two other restaurants right in the marina circle.
There is also the coast guard museum. Which is FREE! Has a big boat in it that kids can climb on. Cool history/ nautical facts and coast guard information for adults. Little fishing games and boat fun for the kids.
Check the activities calendar for kid events going on at the canal. Explorer's clubs and story time are weekly activities all Summer long!!
Come on! Bring your friends!

I think I would have to walk that trail you mentioned - or watch the boats in the marina. Growing up in Florida near the marinas, I can never get enough being near the water.

I can not wait for summer vacation! The kids are counting down the days until school is over and it feels like it won't be here fast enough.
