Approaching Nobska Lighthouse and Beach near Woods Hole in Falmouth, Mass. instantly reveals the true personality of Cape Cod.

The recipe remains simple and steadfast for this classic Cape Cod scene: lighthouse, sand and waves. Add some salt sea air and a gentle breeze and it all adds up to, for many, a complete Cape Cod summer experience. That's it, nothing more. Simplicity yields instant travel rewards to the senses.

A closer look at Nobska Lighthouse.

Many regard local seafood, miniature golf, ice cream, whale watching, cruises and main streets filled with shops and restaurants alongside lighthouses, sand and waves (and dunes added to the mix) as the main attractions to Cape Cod living and vacation bliss. That's fine and certainly a powerhouse of overall enjoyment. The thing is, however, that the lighthouse, sand and waves combination offers more peace and relaxation than anything else. Many of us seek that when visiting Cape Cod.
