Christmas on Cape Cod

Christmas on Cape Cod - We put the "Sea" in Season's Greetings!

There is no better place to rediscover all that is magical about this holiday season than Cape Cod.

Every December, the Cape is home to countless special events and attractions, accommodations packages, and holiday shopping opportunities.  Festive events include holiday strolls, Santa's arrival by boat, craft fairs, harbor lights, parades, theater productions and quintessential Cape experiences like the Falmouth Christmas Parade and the lighting of the Lobster Pot Tree in Provincetown. Cape Cod Central Railroad transports families on a magical, storybook ride aboard the Polar Express. Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich presents its Gardens Aglow celebration, featuring over nine miles of holiday lights throughout the gardens.

The season culminates with First Night celebrations in Sandwich, Chatham and the new First Light Provincetown, which stretches the New Year's celebration into a fun-filled weekend.

Congratulations to the two winners of the 2016 Santa's Helpers Gift Card Promotion: Heather H. of Nashville, TN, who shared this adorable photo of what #ChristmasonCape Cod looks like to her - and Christie Peterson, who submitted this festive photo of the "Best Dressed Local Business" on Cape Cod!
