Summer on Cape Cod

Cape Cod is a popular summer destination for families and is steeped in tradition.  With over 560 miles of coastline and over 50 public beaches, Cape Cod is a beach-lovers dream.  It is also a seafood-lovers haven.  Seafood is in abundance on the Cape; from lobster rolls, New England clam chowder, steamed clams, oysters and haddock, there’s nothing like it.

From whale watching to biking at the Cape Cod National Seashore, summer on Cape Cod is truly special. I just spent four glorious days soaking up the sun, riding bikes, taking long walks on the beach and more importantly eating fresh seafood.  Two of my favorite restaurants are The Chart Room in Cataumet for their beautiful views and Water Street Kitchen in Woods Hole for seasonal, farm-to-table, innovative cuisine.

Cape Cod Summer Recipes

You can create a fabulous Cape Cod seafood feast this summer even if you can’t make the trip.  Here’s my recipe for Decadent Lobster Rolls and one of my favorites for Baked Haddock with Swiss Chard; both perfect for a hot summer evening dinner.

Fun Fact

Cape Cod Potato Chips are arguably the best potato chips in the country. The Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory located in Hyannis allows visitors to tour the facility and see first-hand how these homemade potato chips are made – from the hand-stirring of the potatoes to inspection before the iconic chips are shipped out to stores, restaurants, and hotels across the U.S.
