Travelogue: Summer Babymoonin' In Cape Cod

Cape Cod is a hook-shaped peninsula that extends from the southeast corner of mainland Massachusetts into the Atlantic Ocean, and its idyllic beaches and maritime appeal make it a popular summertime destination for vacationers, which sees the population more than doubling from 200,000 to over half a million.
It was Andrew's idea to babymoon there since it is a manageable 4-5 hour drive from the city (depending on traffic). We were based mid-Cape in Hyannis and were able to drive out to the bustling, vibrant northeastern tip in Provincetown and the quaint, laidback southernwestern tip in Woods Hole. 


In the short span of 4 days, besides overdosing on lobsters and ice cream, we got to climb up the 252-feet tall Pilgrim Monument, tour the historic Highland Light (and visit other iconic lighthouses), eat at the hottest restaurants on the Cape, experience a slice of life on the Cape at the LoveLocal Fest by the Hyannis Marina, explore the Heritage Museum and Gardens and marvel at their impressive antique car collection and much, more more.
The CapeMade Field Guide published by Love Live Local was our go-to for discovering the best of Cape-owned businesses and unique products and experiences, ensuring that our dollars spent would stay in and support the local communities. We didn't have enough time this trip, but I would love to go whale-watching and tour the sand dunes our next visit, as well as check out the Lower Cape.

"When all has been said, the adventure of the sun is the great natural drama by which we live, and not to have joy and awe of it, not to share in it, is to close a dull door on nature’s sustaining and poetic spirit.” - Henry Beston
