The Cape Cod Baseball League is the premier college summer league that gives you the rare opportunity to watch future MLB stars. These young college players aspire to develop from the Cape Cod Baseball League to MLB. Small, intimate ballparks, great local flavor, excellent baseball, and it’s so exciting to watch! The atmosphere is always fun, intimate, and laidback perfect for bonding with dad over baseball. The Chatham Anglers play around the corner from the Inn, just a five-minute walk.
Take dad fishing
Go fishing, or kayaking, or sailing! There are so many water activities to choose from when on Cape Cod so you and dad can have a day out on the water together. Reserve a charter boat and go on a fishing adventure. The Rock Harbor Charter Services consist of 10 fully equipped sportfishing charter boats that fish the waters of Cape Cod Bay for striped bass, bluefish, shark, and bluefin tuna from Rock Harbor in Orleans. If you are looking for a more relaxing water experience go sailing. Whether you are planning on a leisurely afternoon trip or magical sunset, Cape Cod Sailing Charters in Chatham will give you a memory that will last a lifetime. Take dad on a scenic oyster farm tour after your day on the water. Harvest your own oysters which you will enjoy in a private raw bar on the Oyster River. You can also plan a fun day out taking a seal or a whale watching tour.
Take dad golfing
A round of golf at any of the Cape’s pristine courses is always a guaranteed Dad-pleaser. Located in downtown Chatham just minutes from the Inn, the Chatham Seaside Links golf course offers amazing ocean views and it’s perfect for a father and son outing. The 9-hole course has a challenging layout, it’s easy to walk and offers a tremendous value and greens that rival that of some of the best private courses.
