The Destination
When your mind is as idle as Beantown traffic, follow the thousands of artists and writers who looked to the coast for inspiration and book it to the Lower Cape. Everywhere you turn could be a scene from a postcard, with sandy shorelines, stalwart lighthouses, and sails flapping in the wind. Large swaths of protected land and historic seaside communities generally escape the snarled traffic and trappings of tourism more common closer to the mainland. The Lower Cape is ready to welcome travelers searching for an authentic experience—Cape Cod as it used to be.

The Digs
Located in Eastham, The 19th-century Inn at the Oaks has a literary legacy of its own: Naturalist writer Henry Beston stayed at the historic property in the 1920s while penning his classic The Outermost House. Painted a sunny canary hue with a gracious porch wrapping around its exterior, the inn contains 13 guest rooms individually appointed with antique furnishings, private bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, and Wi-Fi.

The Diversions
• Rent some wheels from Little Capistrano Bike Shop
• Pedal around the Cape using a map of literary sites as your guide
• Snack on a basket of fried clams at landmark Arnold's Lobster & Clam Bar
• Visit the Three Sisters Lighthouses on the National Sea Shore

  • "A perfect getaway spot. We enjoyed nearby biking and beaches, and our hosts were just wonderful. Highly recommended!"
