Cape Cod…. the land of the rich and famous. Although we thoroughly enjoyed our time here, it would have been nice to be able to see Cape Cod thru the window of an expensive beach front condo.
We started off our tour in Truro, MA at the beach.
With Cape Cod’s central location to Boston and even New York City, the area is packed in the summer. Cottages dot the coast line, but would blast our budget apart.
Cape Cod style homes seem to be cedar shingles that are allowed to weather and fade, the trim is always white.
The natural scenery in Cape Cod is the best part. Stay away from the towns! There are some towns on the cape, but they are filled with overpriced ice cream shops, art galleries with works the price of new automobiles and cheesy tourist attractions. The $20 parking cannot be easily forgotten either.
We viewed the National Seashore beach at Race Point. The National Park Service operates 6 beaches, and we were told Race Point was the least crowded.
The Cape Cod Lighthouse used to be much closer to the cliff, due to erosion it was moved inland in 1996.
This post will likely be our last beach for a few weeks. New York City is just around the corner and we are eager to finally see the Big Apple.
