Travel a little more than 3 miles to the heart of Marshfield, and you'll find the 19,000-square-foot Ventress Public Library, founded in 1895. Here you can obtain one-day passes to several area educational attractions, including the Boston Children's Museum, the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History, the House of Seven Gables, the JFK Library, Plymouth Plantation and Roger Williams Park Zoo.
A popular retirement area and summer vacation destination of the New England elite, historic Cape Cod is just a short drive from the community. The Cape Cod Canal separates the peninsula from the mainland; only two highway bridges, Sagamore and Bourne, connect the cape to the mainland, while the Cape Canal Railroad Bridge allows both freight and passenger service between the peninsula and mainland. A sidewalk along Bourne Bridge accommodates pedestrians and bicyclists.
Geologically, most of the cape region lies in the southernmost area of glacial coverage in the southeastern part of New England. The cape protects much of the area coastline from North Atlantic storms, which often results in erosion of the cape's shoreline. The Atlantic Ocean ensures that Cape Cod experiences slightly cooler summers and slightly warmer winters than the mainland. The cold ocean during the winter also delays spring; but by the end of summer, the warmer ocean allows for a mild autumn.
Both residents and visitors to Cape Cod can choose from many outdoor activities, including biking, beach walking, boating, kayaking and golfing. In fact, Cape Cod features 27 public and 15 private golf courses.
The Cape Cod Canal is one of the most popular fishing destinations on the U.S. East Coast, and the striped bass is one of the most sought-after species. Along with striped bass, bluefish and bluefin tuna are some of the larger species that inhabit Cape Cod Bay. Other Cape Cod species popular with anglers include bonito, false albacore, flounder, fluke and tautog. Most harbors on the cape offer charter fishing services from May through October.
