All of sudden, summer on Cape Cod is in full swing, and while we are still very much in the middle of this global pandemic and we all need to proceed with caution, we are once again able to enjoy some of our favorite Cape Cod activities – fun at the beach, dining out at favorite local restaurants, shopping our beloved Main Streets and even enjoying some activities and events that are able to happen as we enter the next phase of reopening.

We’ve put together a list of some things you can get up to out and about but also from the comfort of your home, and this month we’re also updating you on the Cape Cod Resilience Fund and announcing our new goal, sharing news of the recent work of the Cape Cod Young Professionals and encouraging support of our local arts, science and culture organizations that have been closed since mid-March.
