Time was that any self-respecting traveler would not set foot outside his or her home without a shopping bag full of free AAA maps, a suitcase weighed down with guide books from Frommers, Fodors, Rough Guide & Lonely Planet (because frankly you could never really decide which was the best), a list of emergency phrases translated into the local language “ich haette gern ein Bier”, “ik will een biertje”, “una cerveza por favor”, “une biere s’il vous plait”, “Howay man gi’us a bottle of broon” , the addresses of everyone deserving of a “Wish you were here” postcard and a sackful of camera film.
Happily now these burdens can be tossed aside and replaced with apps on your mobile device of choice.
These are the top 5 Cape Cod Travel Apps that will ensure you have an awesome, well-informed Cape Cod vacation and find the best Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast at which to lay your weary head after a fun day of exploring.

6.OK if I sneak in a number 6 then it has to be Candy Crush. Nothing to do with Cape Cod but there are times when you want to just chill out on the beach and I must get to the next level!!
