All a’shore that’s goin’ ashore!

December 26, 2007

     R n R Charters     We’re pleased to announce that we have renewed our alliance with R & R Charters. They offer  great sunset and daily cruises around Falmouth Harbor, leaving from the town dock in front of Harborwalk Resort. Mike and Trish are the owners and operators of three great charter fishing boats and their new Downeast Design 48′ footer. Our guests loved the weekly cruises. The 4th of July Fireworks and the Illumination trips were great too!If you are coming to the Falmouth area this Summer or Fall be sure to take a ride on their fleet.

Hyannis

No trip to Cape Cod is complete without a visit to Hyannis. It is the home of the Cape Cod Mall (very popular this time of year) and an array of restaurants and activities. The John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum is located on Main Street and for those that remember or want to learn about our 35th President it is a delightful stop. It is open Thurs. – Sunday this time of year and is well worth the minimal admission of $5.00.  While in Hyannis, there are a couple of new restaurants you can try. Ardeo’s located at 644 Main St. (about 3 blocks down from the Museum), features Mediterranean Cuisine, a great bar and Pizza. A favorite with locals because the prices are reasonable and the food is consistently good. At the beginning of Main St. (#302) is the Island Merchant. A funky new spot serving Island specialties and a menu using words you rarely see on Cape Cod…like “pulled pork” and “mango papaya coulis”.  Both worth a side trip by themselves, but combined with a Museum visit, or just a walk down Hyannis’s Main Street, make for a great “vacation day”.

Snow Day

December 13, 2007

Today is December 13th and we are getting our first real snow of the season. And it is coming down fast and heavy. Unlike the rest of New England, the Cape doesn’t get much snow, so when we do, everyone panics! They close schools, offices, shops. Everyone runs home to hide. But the upside of that is, everything is beautiful. It becomes quiet and white. Perfect for snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Or even better for finding a quiet bar or restaurant to enjoy homemade soup in and talk about how great the Patriots are doing. So come on down. Don’t let a little white stuff scare you. The shops and restaurants are open and welcoming.
