The Perfect Day in Dennis

Spanning Cape Cod from the Atlantic Ocean to Cape Cod Bay, the five villages of Dennis offer seaside attractions from A to Z. From some of the Cape’s best cultural attractions to beautiful beaches and fine dining, Dennis is worth a full day of exploration.

Eat like a local at the Red Cottage Restaurant (508-394-2923), where breakfast reaches a new level. House specialties like the Three Apple Omelet, French Toast Foster, and the Cape Cod Cranberry Pancakes are what put this place a cut above the rest. Across town, the Scargo Tower offers arguably the best view of Cape Cod. At 30-feet tall, the tower sits atop Scargo Hill overlooking pretty Scargo Lake. On a clear day, viewers can see as far as the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown.


Get off the beaten path by renting a kayak at Bass River Cruises & Kayaks (508-398-0060/508-362-5555). Drop in at Bass River and enjoy the calm waters and hidden inlets, or take a 90-minute guided cruises. Make your way to Route 6A and The Underground Bakery (508-385-4700) for hearty tacos, plump paninis, and tasty biscotti. Finish off your afternoon at the Cape Cod Museum of Art (508-385-4477), offering fine art from regional artists and sculptors.



For an evening to remember, stop by the Red Pheasant Inn (508-385-2133) for a first-rate meal you won’t forget. The extensive wine list and five-star menu will please any palette, and the venue—a 200-year-old Cape—sets a romantic mood. Less than a mile down the road, the Cape Playhouse (877-385-3911) puts on Broadway-caliber performances, and with an ever-changing schedule, there are reasons to keep coming back.
