I would describe the shape of Cape Cod as a jester’s shoe extending out into the Atlantic from the southeastern corner of Massachusetts. We were parked in the Falmouth area, which is near the heel of the jester’s shoe, at the Sippewissett Campground. We took advantage of the Shining Sea Bikeway which is a 10 mile multi-use path that runs from North Falmouth down to Woods Hole, which is at the tip of the mainland on the heel of the Cape. You may have heard of Woods Hole since it is home to the Oceanographic Research Institute.
In order to visit Boston and the surrounding area we couldn’t get much closer than Littleton, MA. We parked at the Boston Minuteman Campground which is located close to Concord and the Minute Man National Historical Park. More about that later.
