Every year, about 14,000 vessels traverse the 17.5-mile Cape Cod Canal that connects Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay. At the Cape Cod Canal Visitor Center, guests can board a retired 40-foot patrol boat, pilot a virtual boat through the canal, scan live radar to locate ships in the waterway and learn about the canal's history through museum exhibits and films. Or visitors can simply kick back in a rocking chair on the center's deck and watch the passing ships. Groups can even get on the canal during a Hy-Line Cruises canal tour. Hy-Line ferries passengers from the town of Hyannis to the islands of Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. Nantucket was once the whaling capital of the world, and that carefully preserved history, complete with cobblestone streets, makes it a favorite for travelers, who can learn more during a guided history tour. Martha's Vineyard has long been a summer retreat for New Englanders, and the 2.5-hour All Island Bus Tour highlights the island's six towns and includes a stop at the beachfront cliffs near Aquinnah.
