I spent my Spring Break in Cape Code with two friends. The weather was sunny, but it was still a bit cold to swim. We rented an Airbnb in Yarmouth and a car for the week with the company Enterprise to drive around and discover natural beaches. There is also an application called Turo, which is basically the Airbnb of cars, where you can rent cars for very affordable prices. You have to check if the country that issued your driving license is listed as authorized in the application though (France wasn’t but if I could have used it, I would have because it is really cheap).
I am originally from Brittany, in the Northwest of France, and I have to say that the landscapes of Cape Code were very similar to where I live. I almost felt like I was at home. The houses were mostly made with wood which, was a big change from the redbrick houses of Boston. Many people walked on the beach with their family, their dogs, or just by themselves. I met a man at Ridgevale Beach who told me that he used to come here to play and relax with his family when he was five years old. I felt it was a beautiful thing to do to come back and still have the same warm and family-friendly feeling Cape Code gives to its visitors.
This is Ridgeval Beach with beautiful wooden houses in the back:
We stopped at The Canteen, a small restaurant with an amazing décor, to eat a little snack before heading back to the house:
I went to New York for Christmas and here is a list of some of the to-do-things we did that you can try:
- Take a picture in Time Square (free)
- Walk through the Winter Village (free) and do some Ice skating ($20) at Bryant Park
- Visit the MET museum (you actually choose the price you want to pay since it is a foundation, I would advise you to pay between $8 and $12) and Central Park (free)
- Admire the view at the top of the Rockefeller Center ($30)
- Walk along The High Line
- Visit Greenwich Village, SoHo, Little Italy, Wall Street and the 9/11 Tribute Center (free)

Spring Break or other holidays are the perfect times to live new experiences and bond with your friends while traveling!
