Portugal Daydreaming :: What to Do in Cascais

Valentina Fussell Cascais-3

The city of Lisbon doesn’t really have a beach that most would want to visit, but the town of Cascais is a 40 minute train ride from the city.  While the ride felt a bit tiring and the ticketing system was having problems, we  thought the ride was well worth it and before too long found ourselves wondering what to Do in Cascais.

The beach was pretty much the only thing the kids could think about, but we convinced them to let us wander the streets of the town first and we all ended up enjoying the tight knit streets, the perfect dilapidation, and the many different tile designs (ok, so I was probably the one that enjoyed the tiles the most, but there were dogs, scooters, bikes, and cars to entertain the kids!)

This little beach town is perfect little escape from the bustle of Lisbon and has a much more laid back feel with many people walking the streets in their bathing suits and flip flops.

Here are some of our favorite photos from our little meandering in the town of Cascais…

I”m going to be there in about 10 days and enjoyed your pictures but was hoping the article would match the headline. This didn’t really give me any tips on what to do there.:(
