About the Cape Cod Canal RegionCape Cod Canal Points of Interest

 The Cape Cod Canal is a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. It is the widest sea level canal (without locks) in the world. Ships can save 162 miles by using the Canal instead of having to travel around the tip of Cape Cod. Passage through the Canal is also safer than having to deal with the dangerous shoals and unpredictable currents surrounding the Outer Cape. The maintenance roads that were used during the construction of the Canal are now extensively used for recreational activities such as walking, biking, roller blading and jogging, as well as sport fishing.
