...OK, now that we've gotten rid of those people, answer these questions below to see if you should keep reading as well.
- Are you adventurous? An explorer by nature?
- Have you ever driven an hour or two just to try a new restaurant?
- Have you found yourself lost for hours in a foreign market while on a trip overseas?
- Do you ever plan your vacations or holidays around food or wine festivals?
- Have you ever been completely knocked out by a meal in a tiny, roadside "hole-in- the-wall"?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, read on! Your trip to Cape Cod is about to get a whole lot more interesting. Just tell us what interests you, or ask us for ideas...
Greeeen Acres is the place to be!
Take a day for yourself, or the whole family...Learn how to harvest fresh fruits and berries, how to turn goat's milk into goat cheese, learn about growing herbs to brighten your meals, or for medicinal purposes. Like the harvest itself, the list of experiences keeps g-r-o-w-i-n-g! Want to mix up some local culture? Take our driving tour with you and stop in local artisan shops, too.
Explore by the Shore.
Spend some time with real Cape Cod fisherman and walk away with some of their favorite seafood recipes, as well as some ingredients, and maybe your own fish (Did you know there are chefs on the Cape that will prepare your freshly caught fish for you in their kitchen?)! Learn about various local fish, see how fish are caught and handled, or learn how to rake for clams. Our favorite "good time" is working alongside one of our oyster farming friends (the setting alone is to die for). Whatever your interests, the list of possibilities is as deep as, well...
It's not easy being green?
Sure it is! There are many road-side eateries and fine-dining restaurants on Cape Cod which are run by some of the country's most talented "green" chefs! These chefs take great pride in creating magic with local (ie; FRESH) products. Why dine at a big chain restaurant when you can have an incredible meal that's locally grown, raised, caught, or harvested? Your Innkeepers at the Lamb and Lion can book you a table at these incredible places, or tell you which restaurants will turn your own catch into a meal! The Lamb and Lion Inn, along with dozens of local fisherman, farmers, growers, and brewers are turning food & drink into an attraction to visitors.
We want to fill your pallets (and your souls!) with unique and memorable eating and drinking experiences, and not just through those who have earned "4 stars" or favorable reviews.

Historic Route 6A driving tour, and more
Touring 6A! Boring? No way! A driving tour of historic Old King's Highway designed to help you experience the best that our area has to offer...the most interesting and unusual shops, museums, hiking, farms, tucked away beaches, the best food along the way, and the best views. This tour takes you from historic Sandwich Village to Orleans. Much of what is featured will delight even the most seasoned Cape traveler!
Same idea as above. This tour takes you up "the arm" through the Cape Cod National Seashore, as well as Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro, and Provincetown. You'll know where to shop, eat, view a lighthouse, check out a farm, taste local wine, and hike until your sneakers have melted!
A Taste of Chatham
This driving tour will get you to the nearby village of Chatham with ease, and points out all of our favorite shops, galleries and dining spots in and around the Chatham area. Spend some money, people watch, view Chatham Lighthouse, and tour the famous fishing pier to see how "reel" fisherman do things!
Cape Cod Culinary & Agricultural Tours
Explore what's locally grown, caught, harvested, raked, stomped, and brewed on Cape Cod. Check out a vegetable or herb farm, speak with a real Cape Cod fisherman, learn how to harvest oysters, tour a winery....the options are endless. For more ideas check out our "Culinary Adventures"!
Light My Way to the Lighthouses!
We'll supply you a lighthouse map! Drive the various villages, and take in these mystical monuments...But be warned, if you plan on hitting them ALL, you'd better stay for more than just a couple of days!
Rather Peddle Then Settle?
Attention bicyclists! There are three incredible biking destinations on Cape Cod. The Lamb and Lion is equidistant to all three -- the Cape Cod Canal Bike Trail, Nickerson State Park Rail Trail, and the Nobska Lighthouse Trail! We can tell you how to get there and where to easily rent bikes. Giddyup! For something really out of left field ask about taking the Inn's Italian surrey for a spin along the rail trail--it's a hoot (and a head turner!)
Gotta Feel For the Automobile?
There are two cars museums on Cape Cod. Both have quite an eclectic collection (say that three times fast), and both are just minutes from our door! We'll show you how to get to both, as well as other points of interest along the way!
