Take A Trip To Cape Cod - But Book Early!
If you're planning to take a beach holiday this summer, you'll have a vast range of stunning American locations to choose from. Whether you're planning to take a vacation along the Florida Coast, or you're hoping to take a road trip down California's most stunning pieces of coastline, you'll definitely be in for a treat. But don't spend too much time seeking out some of the USA's most secluded beaches. Instead, go for an old favourite - like Cape Cod, Massachusetts - and get in on some more traditional beach action!

In Cape Cod, you'll be able to enjoy some stunning areas of coastline that justify why so many people return to the area on vacation year after year. The Cape Cod National Seashore stretches along 40 miles, from Chatham to Provincetown, so not only will you be able to experience breathtaking golden beaches, you'll also get a taste of Cape Cod's rich human history. In Provincetown, for instance, you'll see the place where the Pilgrims first landed in 1620.

What's more, if you visit Marconi Beach in Cape Cod, you'll be able to see the site at which Guglielmo Marconi made the first transatlantic wireless transmission originating from the United States in 1903. Marconi Beach is also excellent for surfing and boasts sand dunes that are so high they block the sun - making sure you get to mix a taste of historical culture with serious fun during your vacation in Cape Cod.

If you love seafood, then Cape Cod is also a vacation paradise. Some particularly well-known products from Cape Cod include shellfish, particularly oysters and clams; while lobstering is also a prevalent activity. However, if you don't like eating undersea creatures, but love watching them, you'll adore the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary in Provincetown. Visitors in the area can choose from several whale watching fleets who berth in Provincetown; most of which guarantee a whale sighting - mostly humpback, finback and sei whales - although only one is federally certified to rescue whales.

Cape Cod's stunning surroundings and uniquely beautiful sunlight also means that the area is especially popular with artists, photographers and ordinary travellers who appreciate the sights and sounds of nature. Moreover, Cape Cod and its islands - like Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard - are home to a substantial number of working lighthouses, including Highland Light, Nauset Light and Chatham Light.

Although Cape Cod has a year-round population of only 230,000, the region experiences a flood of tourists during the summer. So if you're thinking about visiting Cape Cod between Memorial Day and Labor Day, you'll have to book early to make sure you're able to enjoy the accommodation of your choice. By making a hotel booking online well in advance, you can ensure that you'll be able to secure rooms for your vacation with ease. Furthermore, many hotels offer discounts for travellers who book their hotel accommodation early and online, meaning that you could save a significant amount on your holiday if you plan ahead carefully.
