I came across this website today, A great resource for lots of child related things to do & see on the Cape. They have a very extensive Events Calendar not to be missed if you live on the Cape or want to plan a trip.

I really like their Kids Friendly Lodging section so you can find places that really are kid friendly. Even better is their Restaurant Reviews done by kids themselves!

Go check out this website before planning your next Cape vacation or daytrip!

The Sandwich Fair

Last year was the first year we ventured north to New Hampshire and went to the Sandwich Fair....and we're returning because we loved it so much! If you're a fan of the Marshfield Fair, you'd like the Sandwich Fair.

The Sandwich Fair has midway rides which are are favorite of the kids. They also have 4h animal exhibits as well as live shows & performances. I like that they open at you can get there early and enjoy the ride specials from 8-2 (only $15!) You can see a full schedule of events on their website.

It's up on Route 109 in Center Sandwich and is always held on Columbus Day Weekend. I'd say it's a good 3 hours from us here on the South Shore so I'd plan on a long day trip or staying up in the area (we camp up near there).
