Cape Cod and the Islands are New England's playground by the sea. Visitors looking to escape the maddening crowds and pricey parking lots for the experience of its diverse landscape, unique history, and charming communities will find all the information they need in this new Moon Handbook. While most conventional guides include only the obvious highlights, this guide covers the entire region with an insider's perspective on must-see attractions and undiscovered gems worth seeking out. Author and Massachusetts resident Jeff Perk provides generous helpings of historical and cultural information along with details on sports and recreation, small towns, historical exhibits, and nature trails that provide alternatives to the beaches. This first edition guide also includes a special chapter on the Elizabeth Islands, a little-known archipelago along the edge of Buzzards Bay, as well as coverage of other offbeat attractions, from square dancing under the stars in Wellfleet to seal-watching cruises from Nantucket. Complete with selective listings of dining and accommodation options, detailed maps, photos and illustrations, and insightful sidebars, Moon Handbooks Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket is the ultimate resource for an enriching and extraordinary getaway.
