First Time in Cape Cod

My husband (we're in our early 30's) and I are thinking of taking our first trip Cape Cod in mid-August. We prefer to be in a town where there is a little activity. From what I've read, Barnstable/Hyannis seems to fit that preference. Any input on our choice? Also, how is Cape Codder Resort & Spa?

Your info re Barnstable/Hyannis is pretty much on the mark. Provincetown, too, has a lot of activity, but much of it is for gays.

I think the Cape Codder is overrated.
I like the Tradewinds by Craigville beach. Try to stay near the beaches for your first trip.
Even though Barnstable is the most busiest town on the Cape, it really doesn't have much activity outside of bars.
Go up to Chatham- better beaches- more true to the Cape Cod that most people envision, better hotels, restaurants.
You could visit Hyannis or P-Town at night, both the same driving distance. If you like nightlife, P-Town has it all over Hyannis, gay-oriented or not.

Barnstable/Hyannis is a good place to choose for Cape Cod first-timers. It is centrally located and has the most accommodations, restaurants and places to visit on the Cape.

The owners of the Cape Codder spent million$ last year renovating their hotel and turninig it into a first class resort. You will however, have to drive to beaches, activity and attractions. If you want to be closer to "activity" try one of the motels on Ocean street such as Hyannis Harborview.

Having been a former resident I do think that Yarmouth, in particular So. Yarmouth is a better place to stay. Hyannis is more than a little activity it as a lot of activity and can be daunting to navigate in July. Fun to visit, but not the place to stay for long.I love the area around the Red Jacket hotel...check them out online!

We have stayed often at the Trade Winds on Craigville Beach. Nice hotel, but its best feature is that it is located just across the street from the beach. Craigville Beach is surely the nicest warm water beach on the Cape. Don't miss Four Seas Ice Cream in nearby Centerville.
