Maine, Cape Cod
Think saltwater taffy, seaside cottages, children building sandcastles and sailboats at sunset. When New Englanders want a day at the beach they head to ‘the Cape.’ This sandy peninsula is fringed with 400 miles of sparkling shoreline. But there’s a lot more than just beaches here. The Cape boasts quaint fishing villages, excellent biking and hiking trails, and some of the freshest seafood imaginable. Provincetown began as a summer retreat for writers and artists. These days it has a thriving gay and lesbian community and a carnival feel all year round.
