taying on Cape Cod can be pricey, but doesn’t have to be. Unsold rooms can rent for as little as half price, and hotels and inns will sometimes throw in free meals, whale-watching tickets, or massages, or put together value packages when things get slow. Find these secret deals through the little-known Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce “value vacations” service. Discounts are more rare on the outer Cape, but you can find a few on the Provincetown Chamber of Commerce website. There are also four surprisingly nice hostels in great locations, including on the beach.
