Will make you happy; it's as simple as that.

The Community - Cape Cod, MA
Cape Cod is a geographic cape and peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean in the easternmost part of the state of Massachusetts in the Northeastern United States. Its historic, maritime character and ample beaches attract heavy tourism during the summer months. Cape Cod stretches from Provincetown in the northeast to Woods Hole in the southwest. The Cape Cod Canal cuts 17.5 miles roughly across the base of the peninsula, though the western boundary of the cape extends to include small portions of the towns of Bourne and Sandwich which lie on the mainland side of the canal.

The Cape Cod Regions, consisting of Cape Cod and the islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, will make you happy; it's as simple as that. That is, unless amazing mini golf, even more amazing regular golf, beautiful beaches with rolling dunes, legendary seafood, homemade ice cream, countless kid-friendly activities, the world's most romantic places to stay, pristine conservation land, and fantastic water sports don't make you happy. But that'd be next to impossible. We said homemade ice cream.
