15 Places To Go On Cape Cod This Summer

15 Places To Go On Cape Cod This Summer

For long beach days and late summer nights...


Cape Cod is one of my favorite places in the world, especially in the summertime. There is so much to do and so many places to visit, so if you find yourself on this magical little peninsula make sure to check out some of these recommendations!

1. Mayflower Beach

During the summer months this beach is packed full, but one of the best places to go for a sunset.

2. Chatham

A small, walkable town with cute stores, great food, and unique character! The Squire is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at when I'm there. It's right on Main Street where all of the shops and stores are.

3. Provincetown

Such a fun place to go during the summer when it's super busy. It has eclectic scenery and incredible charm that you don't want to miss! The Lobster Pot is a great restaurant with a view of the beach and town from the second floor.

4. The Smuggler

Best ice cream on Cape, hands down.

5. Nauset Beach/The Beachcomber

For those who crave some waves, this is the beach for you. It is the ocean though and Cape Cod is notorious for sharks so swim at your own risk. The Beachcomber is a fun beach bar to grab food at after a long day at the beach.

6. The Underground Cafe

Formerly known as Bucky's for any OG's reading. Cute cafe with great biscotti's, coffee, baked goods, and growing menu!

7. Pirates Cove/Skulls Island

Only the coolest mini golf courses ever...

8. Nantucket

Although not technically on the Cape, it's right off the coast and the cutest town to walk around and shop for the day!

9. Martha's Vineyard

You simply can't go to Cape Cod without a quick trip to the vineyard. There's a lot to see in each of the smaller towns so maybe do your research and decide what you want to see/do most while you're there. I recommend Edgartown and Oak Bluffs, as they are the larger more popular towns on the Vineyard.

10. Zest Cafe & Juice Bar

New addition to my little town of Dennis. Fresh fruit, acai bowls, wraps, snacks, and more!

11. Red Cottage

My favorite little breakfast place. Small, very busy at prime breakfast time but worth the wait.

12. Marshall's in Patriot Square

I've never walked out of here empty handed- it's that good.

13. Cape Cod Baseball Game

Summer and baseball are essentially synonymous and being on the Cape it's a must for everyone at least once.


Family friendly restaurant, often with live music, always busy and great food (clam chowder 10/10 recommend). They have a fun deck, bar area, and raw bar for seafood lovers.

15. Cape Abilities

5 Reasons I Will Defend The Oxford Comma To My Grave, AP Style Be Damned

I will fight you on this.


As a very passionate English major, I have something to say: the elimination of the Oxford comma is not okay. In case you don't know, by definition, the Oxford comma is the last comma in a list, typically right before the conjunction.

I have grown to love this comma, as it provides the clarity many list-oriented sentences need. There is absolutely no reason to eliminate this comma, and I will continue to defend my point of view for these five reasons.

1. List items are equal

Superhero Grammer

If the sentence above were to be spoken in real life, the speaker would be attempting to refer to three different entities. Because the first entity includes two people, it appears that the speaker is specifying the who the people in the first entity are. If there was a comma between "Superman" and "and," the fact that the speaker is talking about three entities would be much

2. Differentiates one item from another

US Comma Court Case

The separation powers of the Oxford comma can be make-or-break in lots of sentences containing lists of tasks. Unclear situations can cause all sorts of problems. Just take a look at this court case.

3. It sounds fancy


If your mind doesn't automatically go to beautiful images of England when you hear the word "Oxford," we need to talk. Oxford is fancy, period end of story.

4. Pleasing to look at

Comma Meme

Don't tell me you don't find the Oxford comma aesthetically pleasing. It provides an immense amount of visual organization that is unmatched by any other punctuation.

5. Taught to us in school

Comma Joke

I was a teenager when the Oxford comma started to disappear from grammar textbooks. My peers and I had been taught to use this comma for our whole grammar education. Don't you dare try to take it away from me now.

This WILL Be Your Year.

"You Looked At Everything You Had To Do And Said "Let's Do This.""


Last semester was a tough one for you. You were dealing with what seemed like a million different problems at once. You were desperately trying to find a job closer to campus, you had a full course load on you, and you also had a lot for your extracurriculars. You felt like you just wanted to sit down and cry at times, but you didn't. You looked at everything you had to do and said: "let's do this."

And you made it through the semester. With flying colors.

You got a job on campus. You made straight A's in your classes. You managed to fit in your club events. You even found time to help start a new one. You got a routine going for the week that worked for you, and you made friends that you know you'll have for the rest of your life.

Look at you now. You're thriving. You made Dean's list (which you never thought you would). You genuinely like your new job, which you couldn't say about your old one. You are both challenging yourself and doing well in your new semester of classes. You are managing your time even better than last year, and studying harder too. You got an E-board position. You have it all.

You came so far. And it's okay to be proud of yourself for that.

This WILL be your year. You can bet on it. Here's to a new year full of new adventures, new friends, and new hopes for the future.
