Anyone from Cape cod, are there any streets or communities that light up there houses?
First, I don't know about any Jewish delis. Second, depending on which town you're in, you can usually just find a neighborhood nearby where most people decorate their houses. It's usually a good idea to try the downtown area, which is almost always decorated.
In the 17th century most houses were not painted. In new England they would be covered with cedar shingles or clapboards and allowed to weather and turn gray. If you want a classic look for your cape, Cabot makes several shades of gray stain, cape cod gray, driftwood gray, dune gray, etc. Pick one of them for the siding and paint the trim white and your house will have a look I think you will like. I like Cabot ProVT stain for the siding and Cabot Finish for the trim. Do the doors in a nice blue, check Benjamin Moore's historical colors, and your house will look really sharp.
Where can I find a good Cape Cod investment real estate agent?
This is kind of weird that I ran into this question, but my wife and I just closed on a property near the beach in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. We used a company that actually specialized in finding vacation homes and investment properties. I think they also do the New Hampshire lake regions and Rhode Island. If I remember correctly the name was My Destination Realty or it may have just been Destination Realty.
Hi, you can find a hotel between Falmouth and Dennis that will be great for families. Hyannis and Yarmouth probably have the most activities for kids and parents as well as the biggest selection of hotels. It is peak season but the economy is still struggling so I'm sure you'll find a hotel. There are many on RT 28, the main road between Hyannis and Dennis.
Mini-golf is a big attraction and there is a great pirate themed course in Yarmouth right on RT 28. There are many cute ice cream shops along RT 28 as well. The beaches are just south of RT 28. West Dennis beach is great for families.
Also, see if you can do a day-trip on the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. It's a very special place. The ferry ride is short, about 45 mins and it very scenic. The Vineyard is a one-of-a-kind place and has to be experienced to understand.
I lived on the Cape and have taken our family to the Vineyard many times. We have personal photos and tips in the site in the source below.
Have Fun !
Cape Cod advice. What's the best family destination in Cape Cod and the best way to get there?
The trip from Boston to Cape Cod is only 1-11/2 hours, about 80 miles. You need to book a place to stay before you go. Cape Cod is very crowded in July, and you don't want to be looking for lodging. Our favorite is Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster. They have 3 outdoor and 2 indoor pools, private beach on Cape Cod bay, a couple of different restaurants, golf, tennis, they are right on the bike trail and they rent bikes. You can get 1, 2, or 3 bedroom villas. We are a family of 5 and have squeezed into a 1 bedroom, but the two bedroom is much better. Brewster is a great location, kind of central to everything.
