ing with water. Anything a person can think up that has to do with
water is available including boating, surfing, kayaking, paddle board-
ing, deep sea fishing and much more. Hiking is quite common. There

Seashore. Cape Cod has eight working lighthouses, making it one of the
country's foremost destinations for lighthouse buffs.
For history buffs, there have been more than 3,000 documented ship-
wrecks around the Cape over the past 200 years. The arts and culture
are a big part of Cape life and include galleries, fairs, concert halls,
music venues, museums and more.
