Cape Cod in July

Cape Cod is one of those quintessential Massachusetts destinations with close to 40 miles of seashore making up what is formally known as the Cape Cod National Seashore. From the moment you cross the threshold of the Bourne Bridge to the tip of Provincetown, there are plenty of beaches, lobster rolls and activities to keep you occupied. My fiancΓ© spent his summers growing up here and we try to make it down to his cottage as often as possible. July was the most successful month this summer with two weekends spent enjoying the Cape in its busiest season and while some rain and a 4th of July hurricane may have prevented us from spending more time on the beach, it also allowed for some more exploration of what is a beautiful part of Massachusetts. Below are some photos from July’sΒ #take12trips.

  1. Fun photos! I’ve never made it to Cape Cod. Funny how when you live somewhere, you tend not to travel in your own country. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks, Greg! Yes, I know the feeling. I finally made it to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, Maine this summer after years of being on my bucket list. It is only a four hour drive so I think I kept putting it off for more exotic destinations.

  4. Lovely photos! Another destination on a long list of domestic destinations that has alluded me πŸ™‚ It was Martha’s Vineyard, not Cape Cod but Judy Blume’s “Summer Sisters” was always one of my favorite books.

    As for Iceland, just incredibly jealous so I look forward to your posts and pictures. All I can say is be brave and try whale?

    • Thanks, Julie! I know the feeling, the list keeps growing doesn’t it? I still have so many places in the United States to visit as well! Martha’s Vineyard is another one of my favorites. If you travel to Cape Cod you should definitely take the ferry over to the Vineyard – it so easy from the Cape and one of the best places in Massachusetts!

      Hopefully I will have some good insight to share from Iceland! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks, Lauren! There are so many beautiful parts of the Cape and the summer is the best time to visit. If you can squeeze it in, I definitely recommend it!
