Cape Cod and the islands
For New England, it doesn’t get more “quintessential” than Cape Cod. If you’ve been to Cape Cod, Nantucket, or Martha’s Vineyard, try a new activity when you return this summer. Kayaking, bike rides, and simple beach lounging rank high on our lists..
Pictured is a street scene on one of the main tourists hubs, Circuit Avenue, in Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard.
