Boarding our motorcoach, we will ride to Hyannis, a charming and characteristic Cape Cod village, one of seven in the town of Barnstable. We’ll spend the morning at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum on the waterfront, learning about the Cape’s maritime history and culture, ships past and present, and participate in an expert-led, hands-on scavenger hunt.
At the museum, we’ll have box lunches.
Our next field trip will be to the town of West Yarmouth, where we’ll explore the Whydah Pirate Museum. The pirate ship “Wydah Gally” sank in 1717 and was found off the coast of Wellfleet, Cape Cod, in 1984, making it the world’s only authenticated pirate ship. We’ll see real pirate artifacts and treasures being excavated and learn about the ship’s wreckage and discovery. We’ll then ride back to the hotel.
At a local restaurant. Share favorite experiences with new Road Scholar friends during our farewell dinner.
At leisure. Prepare for check-out and departure after our final session in the morning.
