Hyannis is the center of transportation, shopping, and vacation facilities for the south shore of the Cape. It’s often very crowded in summer, but you can find almost anything you need here, and dedicated shoppers will never lack something to do as they survey several hundred stores. There’s also plenty of activity for those who would rather move around than shop. North and South Monomoy Islands, just off the coast of Chatham, are now a National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge provides a protected haven for gray seals, endangered terns, and other shore birds. Together the islands form a long sand spit that stretches 10 miles to the south, creating problems for mariners. This eTrail contains everything you need to getaway for a quick daytrip or a long weekend jaunt. A route map is included and as are suggestions for the best things to do, places to eat, and places to stay.
