One of life’s guaranteed adventures, besides having kids, is a family camping trip. Because when we’re talking about that trusted recipe for fun—dirt, fire, stars, and wild places—it’s nearly impossible for kids not to have a good time. But if you’re intimidated by the idea of planning your first family camping adventure, we have good news: there’s no one right way to do it. 

“Don’t confine yourself to this picture of what you think camping is from what you’ve seen in films, TV, or magazines,” said Jahmicah Dawes, father of two young boys, and the owner of Slim Pickins Outfitters, the nation’s first Black-owned outdoor gear shop, in Stephenville, Texas.

“We went about camping a different way, subscribing to more of the glamping side first. We would stay in cabins, go on group trips with other families. Our most successful “campout” with small kids was in our backyard. I’m thoroughly okay with that. I want to cultivate a love of the outdoors for our family first.”

What to Do in Cape Cod: Where to Eat, Stay, and Play | Condé Nast Traveler

From the Bourne Bridge to the tip top of Provincetown.

From afar, Cape Cod looks like one of many New England summer vacation destinations.

But zoom in and it’s so many different, wonderful pieces. It’s the land of eccentric ice cream scoops heaped on fresh, buttery waffle cones. It’s the ecologically fragile peninsula where seals flop on tidal flats, whales come up for air, and bats swoop overhead. It’s a confluence of cranberry bogs, marshy lime green wetlands, and scrubby dunes. And though it’s a favorite summertime spot, it is just as nice off-season.

It’s also 70 miles long so it’s best to break it into three regions—and to make more than a single trip so you can explore it all. The names for the regions can be confusing: Only in Massachusetts would the “Upper” actually be south of the “Lower,” so bear with us. Here is our guide for what to do in Cape Cod: where to eat, stay, and play.
