Cape Cod would be PERFECT for a low key week. July 4th might be a bit busy (as any beach area would be) but other than that it it so relaxing. It’s small enough for you to stay in one place and do day trips to other areas but big enough for you to have something to do everyday. You can day trip over to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket on the ferrys also.  I adore Cape Cod. I am biased because I grew up there in the summers but it’s seriously such a great place. Feel free to message me personally if you have any questions and I can try to help!

@aloweha–I also spent my summers growing up in Cape Cod!

It is seriously a great place. I personally love the Outer Cape. A lot cuter, more small town feel. Definitely that great low-key beachy feel. Wellfleet and Provincetown are awesome. The Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet is a great choice for food during the day, drinks at night.

Have fun!

The Cape is great. Fabulous. There is a ton to do and you can certainly keep it low key! It’s not all beaches either. Take a bike ride on the rail trail, go on a whale watch (there are TONS of whales in the summer), explore the cute little shops and boutiques. I personally love the Natural History museum in Brewster. There are amazing trails out to the marsh and the museum is a great place to visit. You can relax and take a lunch to watch the boats come into the harbor. Seriously, it’s a great place to hang out for a week.

I would like to echo the shout outs for the Cape! Definitely perfect for low-key and not-too-hot in July (and romantic)! You’ll have to take a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard, rent bikes in Edgartown and take them over to Chappaquiddick: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chappaquiddick_Island. It’s a beautiful, peaceful island (no commercialism), with a cute little Japanese garden, and a lovely beach. Perfect for bike riding!

Cape Cod is an amazingly romantic and quanit honeymoon spot!  So much to do, from laying out on the beach to taking day trips to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.  There is so many charming towns on the Cape, everything from Falmouth to Chatham to Hyannis to Orleans and PTown.  Go for an amazing sunset sail, have a clam bake, ride bikes, visit the cute stores, eat ice cream, go fishing, take long walks along the beach…ect ect.  I grew up with summers on the Cape and it brings back such wonderful memories for me.  How fun for you and your soon to be hubby!

Cape Cod is definitely a great honeymoon destination.  Chatham is beautiful, if that is one of your options.  Otherwise, I would stay on the outer Cape in the Orleans, Truro area – it’s a bit quieter and beautiful beaches,  You may want to avoid the central part of Hyannis, as it can be a tourist nightmare in the Summer.
