A whole week on the Cape! What to do? What to do?

We are staying at th Red Jacket in S. Yarmouth. We chose it for the Kid's Club and it being centrally located. I've been on the Cape before but my husband and kids (12 yr old and 5yr old) haven't. I plan on a couple of days of much needed Mommy relaxing time by the pool, but not too much. Besides a whale watch, The Children's Museum and the beach was wondering whether anyone had any recommendations??!

Cape Cod Natural History Museum; very kid-friendly, you can also take a nice (non-strenuous) hike thru their trails.

Visiting some of the lighthouses & windmills might be fun for your family. Driving up & down Rt. 28 & stopping at any place that looks interesting. There are some great mini golf places.

Don't forget to stop at Cuffy's for some great deals on sweat shirts, t-shirts, etc. Try the breakfast room for breakfast (chocolate chip pancakes are the best). Great ice cream at the Sundae School in Dennisport on Lower County Rd.

Go carts in Harwich on the way to Chatham.

Enjoy!

Just visited the Scargo Tower in Dennis. Great views of Cape Cod Bay, easy to get to and free. If you're in the area 30 minutes is plenty of time to check it out.
