Ah, Cape Cod. The name alone conjures seashell-dotted beaches, super fresh, catch-of-the day seafood shacks, and good ol’ northeastern American charm. There is something so appealing and quaint about this area of the United States.
This special place mixes a unique feeling of colonial times with that seashell-motif of the New England shoreline all along this long strip of land jutting into the Atlantic Ocean.
I grew up just down the eastern seaboard and had yet to ever visit this famous, vacation paradise. This summer, I finally got my chance…and I already want to go back.
My favorite parts? The wonderful and plentiful seafood (Must. Eat. Lobster Rolls.) and the surprisingly still charming, small, village feel of all the towns. There are almost no high rises here…just delightfully modest, cedar shake, Cape Cod-style homes with lots of colonial appeal.
Here’s a visual taste of the Cape. Next week, I’ll get into more details of what we saw and did…and ATE!
Disclosure: For a portion of my stay, I was hosted by the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce, as always all opinions are my own.
