Chatham Village

Daffodils and tulips say “Goodbye” to winter and “Welcome” to spring as their brilliant colors pop through the thawing ground. The Chatham Village is alive with proprietors and artists readying their shops and galleries for your arrival, making sure everything is just right for a pleasurable shopping experience. Be our guest during this magical time of year.

What to Do

Beach Day

Nothing says Spring Break like a trip to the beach! Head to the Cape Cod National Seashore during your Cape Cod Spring Break. Located on the east side of the Lower Cape, you’ll find 40 miles of shoreline dedicated in a national park. The Cape Cod National Seashore is a great way to spend your day or a lazy afternoon, soaking up some rays, working on your tan, and hanging with your friends on the sandy shore. Be sure to bring your volleyball!

Island Excursion

For something a little more exotic, take a cruise over to national wildlife refuge Monomoy Island for up-close and personal views of seals, native birds, and other offshore critters. Private charters are available to rent, and sightseeing guides will direct your eyes in the right directions.

Whale Watching

Look into whale watching, which starts April 29 with SeaSalt Charters. Explore the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary located north of Provincetown, and you’ll find the whales’ feeding grounds. Get up close with these gentle giants in group or private tours.


Embrace your inner kid and go on a mini-golf adventure during your Cape Cod Spring Break. Pirate’s Cove Adventure Golf will challenge you to putt your way through caverns, under waterfalls, and over bridges all surrounded by pirate lore scenery. Continue your winning streak inside the arcade and let the loser pay for ice cream.
