Cape Cod Map, Towns
Cape Cod is a 413-square mile
peninsula of fields, forests, dunes, marshland and beaches located off
the Massachusetts coast.
This water-enclosed landmass is
home to a year-round population of near 200,000.
The Capes northern shoreline
stretches along Cape Cod Bay, while Nantucket Sound borders its southern
coast. Stretching 35 miles eastward, it suddenly turns north at the
"elbow" and extends another 30 miles further into the Atlantic
Residents live here for many
different reasons. Some grew up on Cape and continue this tradition by
raising their families here. Others have moved or purchased a second
home here to escape stressful lifestyles or simply to provide a
better environment for their children.
Much like Florida, Cape Cod
has a large number of retirees who annually move back and forth from
the area. The area is most famous for its summer tourists, who visit
from almost every state in the union and every corner of the globe.
