You Don’t Need A Pirate’s Map To Find Treasure On The Cape

The Bed and Breakfasts of Historic Cape Cod Bay have united to bring Geocaching to Cape Cod in a big way. Spawned by the surging interest in this relatively new sport, the Inns are holding the first of hopefully many geocaching weekends for enthusiasts and wannabes alike.

This fun adventure will take place on May 5, 2007 at Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich, MA on Cape Cod. A one-hour “introduction to geocaching” workshop will kick off the event in the historic Round Barn, followed by a skills practice session utilizing the lovely grounds of the Museum. According to Judy Selleck, the marketing director of Heritage, “This is exactly the type of event we like to see here at Heritage. It demonstrates a new and exciting way to use the facility that can be fun for the whole family.”

Each of the inns have designed special Geocaching Weekend Adventure packages that pair the Saturday afternoon adventure with deluxe accommodations, breakfast each morning, and other delights. Learn more about the Geocaching Weekend Adventure Package by visiting the Brewster By The Sea web site for details on the package and Historic Cape Cod Bay where you can read profiles of each inn, view inn photos, learn about other specials and packages offered by the inns, and find contact information to make reservations. Rates for the package vary by inn and space is limited.

Geocaching is an entertaining adventure sport for owners of handheld GPS (Global Positioning System) units. Started in 2000, the sport has captured the imagination of people all across the globe. The basic idea is to have individuals or organizations hide “caches” and share the locations of these caches on the internet. Geocachers use the location coordinates to find the caches. A typical cache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook and “treasure”, usually toys or trinkets of little monetary value. Once found, the finder records the date and time of the find in the logbook and then re-hides it for others to find.

Each of the lovely Bed and Breakfasts of Historic Cape Cod Bay offers an experience rich in New England tradition. Choose a getaway that best fits your lifestyle.a retreat steeped in colonial history and Native American folklore; a romantic escape, elegant and pampered; or a relaxed and casual hideaway in one of Cape Cod’s picturesque villages along the Bay.

Many of the inns showcase period architecture with historic detailing; others feature relaxing whirlpool tubs, and stunning views; and a few include an outdoor hot tub. Regardless of the amenities, the hallmarks of all of the inns are a gracious breakfast and warm, friendly service. Each property is family-owned and operated so you can be assured of personalized attention while taking advantage of their extensive knowledge of the vast and varied attractions that make Cape Cod a year-round destination.
