Already August?!

You’ll never hear us discourage you from taking advantage of the Cape’s stunning beaches, but everyone needs a break from the sun and sand at some point.  There are so many other things to do, places to visit, shops to patronize. We have ideas for you in each month’s issue, plus you can find lots more in our CapeMade Field Guide, available at select local businesses, online  or via the Issuu app on your smartphone!

in this issue

  • The dunes are alive with the sound of music. We recap many of the Cape’s incredible auditory offerings this month.
  • A new “Healthy Parks, Healthy People” initiative brings together the Cape Cod National Seashore and Cape Cod Healthcare.
  • LLL co-founder Amanda Converse tackles a different kind of local makeover, this time in anticipation of summer houseguests.
  • It’s a Pretty World and we Love it! Live your most active life with two events that will challenge your mind and body. It’s no surprise we have aLocal maritime museum, but who knew it was so cool?
