During my trip I found it quite a common occurrence.... you will need a GPS or directions from a local to find this landmark. Maybe a Cape Cod thing? Anyway, it's not well marked so take your time looking for street signs. Not much here,...More

Nice and clean, well maintained and kid friendly! Bring a good camera and a bunch of lenses. The ponds and oceans are just breathtaking.

This represents an interesting piece of Dennis history. It is a memorial to Charles and Francis Toby, descendants of one of the earliest settlers of Dennis. The family dates back to the late 17th century. Located a short distance off 6A it is easy to find. This...More
