“When we have returned from the sea-side, we sometimes ask ourselves why we did not spend more time in gazing at the sea.”
— Henry David Thoreau, Cape Cod
The Cove Motel overlooks the peaceful Orleans Town Cove. Just steps away you will find numerous quaint shops with diverse offerings; an amazing bakery; coffee and chocolate shop; excellent restaurants; several interesting art galleries; and the Orleans Firebirds, one of the Cape Cod Baseball League's teams. Orleans is surrounded by myriad opportunities to enjoy all the Cape has to offer.
Here's a short of list of things to do in Orleans and around Cape Cod that you can enjoy throughout the year:
The unsurpassed natural beauty of the Outer Cape has been enjoyed by generations. From the pounding surf of the eastern shore, across rolling dunes and sandy paths to the placid “bay side,” the Cape holds a special charm that is sure to relax.
On the Cape, your day can be as active as you want it to be. Make an early tee time on one of the area’s championship-level golf courses. Spend the day exploring the shops and restaurants of Provincetown and along the picturesque King’s Highway. Or simply unwind with a good book on a sandy beach, lulled by the rhythm of the ocean.
One thing is for sure: Once you arrive “Down the Cape,” you’ll leave the cares and worries of the world behind.
