Pack your lunch and spend a day at the Cape Cod National Seashore. A day pass costs $25 and gives you access to the park’s six beach parking lots – your gateways to sun, sand and sea.
The other day, explore the city and surroundings where you will see many historical sites and have the opportunity to witness a magnificent sunset. Download the Complete Cape Cod and Provincetown Tour, which contains a personal, fully guided, step-by-step audio tour that uses GPS to detect where you are and automatically plays relevant information. You can get it from the App Store for $6.99. It is also available on Google Play.
Accommodation can be expensive, but some affordable deals can be made. For example, Viking Shores Motor Inn, which is rated “Very Good” on Booking.com, offers a two-night weekday stay for around $325 after taxes and fees. Plus, a continental breakfast is included and the travel website’s Genius discount is also applicable to your booking, which can save you even more money.
If you opt for the continental breakfast at the motor inn both mornings, you’ll only have to skip lunch and dinner. Fortunately, the area is full of cafes, restaurants, bakeries and ice cream parlors that can help you eat on the cheap.
