As the weather warms, anticipation builds throughout New England – it’s almost time to escape to the Cape! Stretching out like a big fist pump, the 70 mile scenic arm of Cape Cod beckons all to come play on its 600 miles of sandy coast. But the problem remains just as certain as the traffic congestion before the bridge, just where can you find the hidden coves and uncrowded beaches of your dreams. Luckily I’ve just discovered a terrific new Cape Cod guide that spells out exactly where to find the most select Cape Cod locations to make your vacation better than ever before.
In My Footsteps: A Cape Cod Travel Guide, written by Christopher Setterlund, is a must-have guide for anyone who loves spending time on the Cape. Even if you’ve been vacationing on the Cape for years, you’ll discover new treasured spots to explore. Chris has wandered the length and breadth of Cape Cod just as his 12 generations of ancestors have. Since the 17th Century, Chris’ ancestral family has been handing down their knowledge of the most magical places on Cape Cod, and now Chris is sharing these treasured locations with you.
The guide is delightfully streamlined, getting right to the point of sharing the most interesting sites town by town throughout the entire Cape. Chris gives clear, concise directions to secluded beaches, historic sites, iconic lighthouses, magnificent gardens, museums and scenic trails. You’ll easily be able to plan your day’s activities knowing in advance whether a beach has parking fees, lifeguards, concession stands, and if dogs are allowed.
Here are some sites I’m just itching to visit this summer:
Stony Brook Herring Run and Grist Mill in Brewster
Highland Lighthouse (aka Cape Cod Lighthouse), Truro – Oldest lighthouse on Cape Cod
Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge, Chatham
In My Footsteps: A Cape Cod Guide, by Christopher Setterlund is available from the Publisher, Schifferbooks.com or from major book sellers.
Discover new favorite places, learn their stories and history, and enjoy a new Cape Cod experience this summer.
