Thousands of visitors flock to Cape Cod every summer to take in its natural wonders. Aside from its many beautiful beaches, the Cape is also home to lush, green parks, bike trails, and endless other outdoor areas to explore!
Michael Morrison, owner of Rideaway Adventures Cape Cod, always eagerly anticipates the arrival of summer and its outdoor activities. Born and raised on the Cape, Morrison has spent his entire life exploring all of its outdoor activities. Here are his top three ways to get out and enjoy the Cape during the summer season.
Kayaking at a snail’s pace
Kayaking is a great way to slow down, enjoy a peaceful moment, and immerse yourself in the beauty of Cape Cod. Through the silence and quiet movement of kayaking, the natural world around you comes to life. By creating a peaceful presence, you are able to take in the surrounding wildlife within a close distance.
Walking on water with your paddle board
Once you get the hang of it, paddle boarding can be a blast. After taking lessons from a certified instructor, paddle boarders can explore the beauty of the Cape’s many bays, creeks, ponds, and shorelines. Paddle boarders can enjoy this sport at their own comfort level,making it an intense workout or just leisurely enjoying the views.
Biking with the boats
A trip to the Cape isn’t complete without a bike ride on one of the scenic bike paths. Many of these beautiful pathways are located right along the water, offering breathtaking views. The Cape Cod Canal Bike path and Shining Sea Bike path in Falmouth are two options that provide waterside enjoyment for the whole family. Visitors riding along the Canal can feel like they’re one with the boats, cruising along under the magnificent bridges. Biking is also a great eco-efficient form of transportation to access the area’s ice cream shops, restaurants, and more. Rideaway Adventures Cape Cod has bike rental shops located at both bike paths, making it super easy for the whole family to enjoy the outdoors.
Regardless of which activity you choose, be sure to take the time to enjoy the surrounding beauty of Cape Cod.
