(Drum Roll, please! . . . ) …and now, the first of several samplings from our upcoming Compleat Day Tripper: Cape & South Coast edition! The new book, scheduled for release in Summer 2008, is researched and annotated by our latest Day Tripper Diva, Marlissa Briggett, herself a longtime summer Cape Cod visitor and writer for Cape Cod Magazine, The Boston Globe, The Boston Phoenix and other publications.

Off-the-Beaten Beaches

Cape Cod vacationers traditionally make a beeline for the beaches, but what if you want some space to fly kites, have a picnic, or go beachcombing? Diva Marlissa has discovered some lesser-known beaches you might like to try, and some great strategies for avoiding the crowds (you’ll read more in the book):

  • Scusset Beach State Reservation, Sandwich
  • Bass Hole/Gray’s Beach. Yarmouthport
  • Rock Harbor, Orleans
  • Uncle Tim’s Bridge, Wellfleet
  • Red River Beach, Dennis
  • West Dennis Beach (kite flying area)
