“Enjoy the 7 miles that separate Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod. It's the perfect place to walk, run, bike, rollerblade, enjoy the sunsets, fish or just relax and watch the boats pass by. The train bridge, Mass Maritime Academy, and popular seafood restaurants are some of the many things to experience.”
