Restaurants (breakfast): Pancake Man - on Rte 28 heading towards Hyannis (5-10 minute ride, depending on traffic). Hearth 'N Kettle - same direction as above, but a bit closer. Breakfast Room - just around the corner from the cottage on Rte 28 (2-5 minute ride, depending on traffic). Good Friends Café - head past the turn for West Dennis beach, and it will be in a plaza on the left (2-5 minute ride, depending on traffic). Grumpy's – popular spot on the north side of the Cape (take 134 North - back over the highway - and keep going a few miles until you get to the intersection for Rte 6A. Take a left there, and it's just up on the right. About 10 minutes from the cottage). Stuff to Do (daytime): The beach (obviously!). Couple of small ones within walking distance (1/2 mile), and the big town one about a 1 1/2 miles away. Go down to Hyannis, and check out Main Street and the Docks. While in Hyannis, take a tour on the Duckmobile (it's one of those vehicles that can ride on both land and in water - little ones love it !). Take a ferry ride over to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket for the day (ferries leave from Hyannis) Check out Monomy Island. It's a beach over in Chatham, that's only accessible by boat. You'll get dropped off there, and call later when you're ready to head back. The neat thing about it is that seals will swim by in the ocean, while you're there. Go to Nauset Beach in Orleans. It's on the ocean side, and is awesome. About a 20 minute ride from here (take Rte 6 East to exit 12, and follow the signs). Take a ride up to Provincetown (about an hour ride from here – following Rte 6 East). Always something "interesting" to see there! If the weather isn’t great, you can check out the Zooquarium (combination zoo & aquarium; it's on Rte 28, towards Hyannis), take in a movie (next door to Stop & Shop), or check out the mall in Hyannis (there’s a movie theater there too). Play a round of miniature golf (there's a bunch of them along Rte 28, heading towards Hyannis) Go shopping at the Christmas Tree Shops or Cuffy's (a great place for tee-shirts and sweats) -- there's a bunch of both up here! Grab lunch at the Dog House (within walking distance, on the way back from the beach). Great hot dogs and clam fritters! Stuff to Do (nighttime): Go to the Sand Dollar. Restaurant during the day; bar at night. Within walking distance (on Lower County Road). They also have kid karaoke on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday (5-8 pm). Head into Hyannis, and check out the bars and restaurants on Main Street (personal favorites: Gringo’s, the Beech Tree Cantina, and the British Beer Company). Check out a show at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis. Check a production at the Cape Cod Playhouse. It’s on Rte 6A in Dennis. Shows run June through August. Good places for dinner/drinks: Chapin's (within walking distance); the All American Pub (on Rte 134, only about a mile from here); the Lost Dog Pub (by the intersection of Rtes 134 and 6A in Dennis); the Scargo Café (on Rte 6A in Dennis); Captain Parker’s (huge selection; on Rte 28 heading towards Hyannis); and Acapulco’s (Mexican restaurant; on Rte 28 heading towards Hyannis). I'd avoid Rum Runners (it's a bar across the street from the Sand Dollar). It's a bit more of a ‘strange crowd' over there.
