With February vacation upon us, kids of all ages are undoubtedly excited to get a well-deserved break from school. But here on Cape Cod, their love of learning will continue to be satisfied next week, thanks to a slew of fun-filled opportunities connecting them to nature, art and history.
Some love to hate Valentine’s Day, but really, what’s not to like? Candy, check. Flowers, check.
Baseball has long been considered America’s pastime, but at some point in the past 15 years, it was surpassed by football.
There’s much to be said for cozying up indoors when the snow falls, but after the flakes have settled, walking along the snow-covered beaches is one of the Cape’s greatest winter pleasures. On gray days when the ground and branches are bare, the stretches of deserted shoreline and ocean horizons (and a good cup of coffee afterward) will cure any blues.
On New Year’s Eve, after indulging in a Mai Tai and Pu Pu Platter for 1 at Hyannis' Dragon Lite Restaurant, I opened my fortune cookie and was amazed at what I read: 2016 is The Year of the Quahog. It was clear that this was a message from above telling me one thing and one thing only:
With a new year comes new hopes, dreams and beginnings. We set goals that we want to accomplish, some realistic, others more idealistic.
And so it is on Cape Cod, where there is always more to do. A place you haven’t explored. An activity you haven’t experienced. An adventure that awaits. With that in mind, here are our suggestions for your 2016 Cape Cod bucket list!
Baby, it’s cold outside! If you’re on the Cape (and where better to be to savor all that award-winning hot chowder, the wide-open beaches for winter walks, and off-season packages at your favorite B&Bs, inns, and hotels), bundle up and get cozy at the movies. Here are some favorite places to see the stars.
There’s too many reasons to count why we love holidays on Cape Cod, where Santa arrives by boat and holiday strolls still conjure a page from an old-fashioned storybook, enough that you wouldn’t be so out of place with a velvet coat and angora muff. (Except for last weekend when you barely needed a coat at all.)
Cape Cod always decks the halls for Christmas, but the holiday fun and revelry continues right into the New Year!
Traditionally, First Night on this side of the canal has focused on two towns: Chatham and Sandwich.
