Cape Cod is an arm-shaped peninsula surrounded by the Cape Cod Bay in Eastern Massachusetts. Boston and Providence are the nearest major cities. During the summer and warm, fall the promontory is popular with tourists. There are fourteen towns on the peninsula that make up the area referred to as Cape Cod; the cape is divided into an upper and lower section, with the lower section to the east. There are a variety of hostels in Cape Cod at different points along the cape.

Hostels in Cape Cod are a little pricier, like other upscale areas on the East Coast. There are several towns, each with their own unique character. Provincetown is an artist colony on the extreme tip of the peninsula. Truro is a rural area just south of Provincetown. Eastham is considered the starting point for the Cap Cod National Seashore. Hyannis is the commercial center of Cape Cod and is sometimes referred to as the capital of the Cape. It also provides ferry service to the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

There are several ways to get around Cape Cod. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is a scenic bicycle path that runs from Dennis to Wellfleet and passes through four other towns along the way. There is also a highway that runs along the cape, several bus lines, taxi service, and a rail line. If you are looking for a great view of the area, The Scargo Hill Observation Tower in the town of Dennis is the highest place to get an overview of Cape Cod. In Provincetown the Pilgrim Monument, a tower overlooking the ocean, also offers a great view. One last interesting place off the highway is the Edward Gorey House in Yarmouth Port. The quirky illustrator’s former home now serves as a museum celebrating his life’s work.
