The Cape Cod Canal is an artificial waterway that joins Cape Cod to mainland Massachusetts and is approximately 7 miles long. Walk along the canal jetty or relax on a bench and observe the ocean current change direction every six hours! The Sagamore and Bourne bridges are both visible from the Buzzards Bay canal entrance. Pack your roller blades, bike, skateboard, and enjoy incredible ocean views and South Coast serenity. Be sure to time your visit to catch the Railroad Bridge drop and watch the dinner train ride by!
