Hollywood’s relationship with Cape Cod isn’t a new thing, and we’re sure to have more filming taking place here in the near future. For now, if you’re in the Provincetown area, producers will be looking for locals to fill the roles of extras in Hightown, and if the series is picked up for a second season, we’re sure to have additional scenes filmed on the Cape.
The private oceanfront property faces south and features 215 feet of sandy beach with panoramic water views of Cotuit Bay and Nantucket Sound. This property had been owned by the same family for more than 100 years, so it’s quite literally an once-in-a-lifetime piece of oceanfront Cape land.
You’ll probably spend most of your time this summer on Cape Cod, and with good reason. A quick 15-minute drive from downtown Sandwich takes you to Scusset Beach State Reservation, however, and it's well worth checking out at least once this year, especially if you want to do some fishing, camping, swimming, biking, hiking, and ship-watching, all in the same day.
Cape Cod is full of great places to check out, but very few have as broad a range of activities in such a small area as Hyannis’ Inner Harbor.
Here, you have the chance to watch luxury yachts as they pass by, dine at some of the Cape’s top seafood restaurants, swim in the ocean, and go into Lewis Bay on a boat all in the same day. If you’re looking for something to do in the spring and summer, you could certainly do worse than a day on the Inner Harbor.
Before 1936, Strong Island didn't have any full-time inhabitants, although research suggests that the Monomoyick people spent their summers there before the arrival of Europeans, and would head to more protected inland areas for the winter. That all changed in 1936 when banker William H. Potter Jr. purchased the island and built a home on its banks.
