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 Train to Christmas Town. Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich presents its Gardens Aglow celebration, featuring over nine miles of holiday lights, a reindeer scavenger hunt and visits with Santa Claus in a vintage Model T. And the Enchanted Village at Cape Codder Resort & Spa sparkles with thousands of lights, Santa's village and spirited carolers.

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.
