Take a boat ride down Cape Cod Canal, or use the waterside paths for recreational activities. First used in 1914, the canal connects two bays to the north and south of the peninsula, while two highway bridges and a railroad bridge link the Cape with the mainland. Whales and dolphins occasionally pass through this artificial waterway, while locals use the paved walkways on either side for strolls, cycling, jogging, and fishing. Stop in the visitor center for more information on the canal's history and natural surroundings. Extend your visit with hikes or camping at the nearby state reserve. Use our Buzzards Bay vacation generator to add Cape Cod Canal and other attractions to your Buzzards Bay vacation plans.
