When you’re taking a trip to Cape Cod, there are quite a few things that you can do without spending a lot of money. Consider sharing the cost of the trip with another family so that you can both enjoy the area. Travel during times when there aren’t a lot of tourists because hotels and attractions will offer discounts so that they can make money. There are numerous coupons for restaurants and attractions that allow you to enjoy fun adventures at a reduced price.

Explore The Lighthouses
There are a few lighthouses that you can explore in Cape Cod for free, such as the Chatham Lighthouse. Views from the top are breathtaking, especially with the sun shining on the water. Tours are usually free during the summer, but there is a limited schedule during the off-season, so you might want to call ahead to check on times. Provincetown also has a lighthouse that you can explore for free.

Waterways
The Cape Cod Canal offers a fun way to view the landscape without paying anything. Get in a small boat or a canoe, gently drifting along the canal until you’re ready to call it a day. The Cape Cod Visitors Center has a large amount of information about the area and the canal. The center is conveniently located next to the canal and several hiking trails. Pack a picnic lunch as there are a few tables and benches that you can sit on to enjoy a light lunch.

Sporting Events
If you like baseball, then watch a game or two in the summer. The Cape Cod Baseball League features free games in the summer months. Watch as some of the younger players try their hand at the sport with the potential of being seen by a professional scout in the stands.

Beaching It
From bonfires on the beach to laying on the sand on a beach towel, there are numerous things that you can do on the Cape Cod beaches. There are activities held on the beach each summer, such as sing-a-longs for kids and tales about the history of Cape Cod that the entire family can enjoy.

Where to stay
There are numerous local bed and breakfasts like Captain Farris House that offer specials and include breakfast to make your stay more affordable. As mentioned, try staying in the off-season for lower rates.
