A summer weekend on the Outer Cape is the perfect way to get out of the city and onto the beach. No plane tickets are needed for this affordable vacation, as it is a quick 90-minute drive from Boston through Plymouth. Tour the dunes or just relax on the beach, but don’t miss out on a sunny, sea-side visit to the Outer Cape this summer.
Cape Ann — Essex, Rockport, Gloucester and Manchester-by-the-Sea — has earned a reputation for many a water sport and family vacation. Gloucester especially is well-known for its deep sea fishing and historical fishing industry, but one of the area’s lesser known draws is an amazing trend toward dog-friendly businesses. Pop that pooch in the car and hit the road to explore Cape Ann with your furry fella.
It’s summertime, and that means the cape is heating up. Among the beauty of a sun-bleached coastline and landscape perimeter of dunes and docks lies an aesthetically pleasing drive to Cape Cod. Whether it’s a day trip or weekend getaway, Lower Cape Cod offers something for every traveler.
