For those seeking quality family time this summer, the Red Jacket Beach Resort offers a wonderful and affordable vacation option on Cape Cod. Located in South Yarmouth and overlooking stunning Nantucket Sound, the Red Jacket is a great spot where families can unplug and spend many enjoyable hours outdoors and with each other.

Kenneth Smith, the resort’s executive vice-president, says the Red Jacket is all about bringing people together to create special memories they can treasure and come back to. “We take our guests away from the modern distractions that detract from relaxing, having fun, and being together,” he says.

The resort offers 150 guestrooms, as well as houses, townhouses, and family suite accommodations. There is a full-service restaurant and lounge, an onsite spa, a tennis court, and three heated pools—one indoors, and two outdoors. Naturally, the resort also features magnificent views overlooking the Sound.

Throughout the summer, activities for children are organized daily, and include fishing derbys and crab races by day, and beach bonfires when the sun goes down. “Kids stay active so that mom and dad can relax during the day,” Smith says, “and there are family events in the evening so that everyone can have fun together.”

One activity intended for all is the resort’s “Dive-in Movie Night,” held one night per week throughout the summer. When the sun sets, a family-friendly film is projected onto a large screen by the pool so guests, if they’re so inclined, can watch while they swim. The Red Jacket also hosts a baseball clinic from July to mid-August, featuring players from the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox of the Cape Cod Baseball League. For more information, visit
