For as long as anyone can recall, the words “Cape Cod” have conjured up evocative images of sandy beaches, lighthouses, sea captains’ homes, picturesque fishing villages, clams, and lobsters. Not only will we experience the Cape, we will also discover the wonders of its two lovely islands, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Martha's Vineyard is probably best exemplified by its many scenic beaches. The beaches vary from protected, shallow, clear-water stretches on the northern and eastern sides of the island to expansion of rumbling surf along the south side. Every foot of the Vineyard has a rich density of history stocked vertically, so that a building now used as a shop or a theater once may have been a church as a meeting hall, and before that a bank or a residence. Nantucket is the best preserved town in New England. It reflects a stirring and glorious past, and to all who come to Nantucket, there is a welcome waiting. The outlying lands of Nantucket was originally called "The Commons". Here, the open heath is a virtual paradise, with an astonishing variety of wildflowers, thickets of scrub-oak, bayberry and pine groves, stretches of mealy plum, an infinite array of shrubs, and green mazes of swamps where wild grape and high-bush blueberry grow in profusion.
