Orleans: A great American beach town

Home to ocean breezes and good vibrations, Orleans is the heart of Cape Cod. Popularly known as one of the great American beach towns, it’s top of the list for any vacationer looking to soak up some sun. Orleans vacation rentals range from idyllic secluded lake houses to waterfront beach houses on Pleasant Bay, an area of incredible natural beauty with a name that’s surely the understatement of the year. So, whether you’re looking for walking trails or a wealth of culture, dip your toes in the Atlantic for an unforgettable vacation.

Things to do

Seal the deal with an Orleans boat tour

You’re sure to squeal with delight on a Blue Claw Boat Tour, which offers a very special Cape Cod Seal Watch Adventure Cruise, bringing you up close and personal with the area’s most majestic creatures, as well as providing stunning views of the Cape’s small islands and lighthouses birds. Prefer to stay on terra firma? The Hog Island Beer Company is a Cape Cod institution: a local brewery and tasting bar with live entertainment, it’s named after the isle where Captain Kidd is said to have buried his treasure.

Activities

Surfin’ USA on Nauset Beach, Orleans

Pleasant Bay may be beach central, but that doesn’t mean lazing around is on the cards! Lace up your hiking boots and check out the picturesque Kent’s Point Conservation Area—especially recommended for your four-legged friends—or hop on a bike and head down the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a 22-mile former railroad that runs from Dennis to Wellfleet. For natural thrillseekers, surf’s up on Nauset Beach, a 10-mile stretch of sandy Atlantic shore with a section reserved for surfers, whilst warmer waters can be found at Skaket Beach on the Cape Cod Bay.

Weather

The only Orleans for your spring break

Don’t be fooled into thinking that Cape Cod is just for the summer: although most opt for July/August stays, the spring is also a wonderful time for a getaway, with pleasantly mild temperatures and the added attraction of the Botanical Walk at the Bank Street Bog Nature Preserve down in Harwich. Why not choose one of the many Orleans vacation rentals featuring cozy family spaces as well as decks and gardens for the warmer periods? Fall remains mild well into October, long after the mainland starts feeling the chill—something well worth bearing in mind when you plan your trip.

Natural features
