glass-making-2-608x400

The oldest town in Cape Cod, Sandwich is rich in history; so we suggest a visit to two local museums in your sightseeing itinerary. While New England has many wonderful attractions to explore, you’re also sure to enjoy all of the fun available at Peters Pond RV Resort, one of the finest campgrounds in this region.

 

Heritage Museums and Gardens

A trip to the Heritage Museums & Gardens is very pleasant experience with a mixture of historical artifacts and lovely flowers. You can view fabulous classic cars, ride an antique carousel, and browse American folk art. Meander through 100 acres of grounds to admire the blooms, pond and fountains, or have an aerial journey as you zip line through the forest at The Adventure Park.

The Heritage Museums & Gardens also features Hidden Hollow, nestled in a two-acre dry kettle hole, a glacially formed depression common to Cape Cod. In this unique outdoor discovery area, children can climb stepping stumps, construct forts, create art inspired by nature, experiment with water, make music and much more.

 

Sandwich Glass Museum

Providing many things to see and learn, the Sandwich Glass Museum will amaze you with the craftsmanship involved in making exquisite glassware of every imaginable color and shape. Steeped in tradition, the town of Sandwich has a long and lurid history regarding its involvement with American glass production, which began in the early 19th century.

Visitors to the museum can enjoy an array of permanent and specialty exhibits. A highlight for many is the glassblowing demonstration, where guests get an up close and personal view of an artisan creating an original masterpiece.

 

Peters Pond RV Resort

This Cape Cod destination is perfect for school reunions and birthday parties, along with camping trips for families or couples. Enjoy fishing and swimming in the spring-fed lake, a featured amenity that’s well known to annual patrons, or sunbathing and building sandcastles at the two sandy beaches.

Aside from water activities, this campground has areas to play volleyball, basketball and other sports. Peters Pond also features a laser tag course, arcade, and themed weekends with plenty of planned activities during the warm summer months.

Make sure to pay a visit to the Cape Cod National Seashore, about an hour away, and explore 40 miles of sandy beaches, marshes, and ponds. Wild cranberry bogs and lighthouses offer a glimpse of the regions past and current way of life.
