Just about this time last year there was an article in the New York Times that spoke about the reasons why people that had habitually stayed in the Hamptons were changing their habits and were migrating to the Outer Cape. We saw more and more of it this year so thought it would be a good time to talk about it again! Authors, artists, financial planners, engineers alike were choosing the quirky streets of Wellfleet, the stunning seashores of Truro and the flair of Provincetown in which to spend their down time.
The article specifically mentioned the difference in pace between the event laden Hamptons and the laid back Outer Cape. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of things going on in the Summer on Outer Cape Cod, but the atmosphere promotes more of a “want to go attitude” versus the “have to go attitude”.
From art openings on Main St in Wellfleet and Commercial St to fantastic theater performances at WHAT and the Provincetown Theatre and everything in between, there is something for everyone here. Reading a book on your porch or at your favorite beach is always one of my favorite Summer past times!
Our own Nick Brown was quoted in the article talking about the wide range of real estate prices here on the Lower Cape. Real estate on the Outer Cape is appreciated by those seeking serenity for many reasons. One of which being the natural state of the land in the area. Having the perfectly manicured lawn is not a necessity when living on a dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. For those that seek simplicity while they are escaping to our own haven, the
beaches bring miles and miles of stunning landscapes, treasures to be found and a sense of peace that can’t be found in many other locations. The Wellfleet Drive In Theatre is always a fun time and the double feature is still a favorite of many! The Truro Vineyards are a must visit while on the Outer Cape. Sipping a glass of wine while sitting with friends among the vines is something not offered anywhere else on Cape Cod.
So the decision is yours….hustle and bustle or the calm peaceful surrounding of the Outer Cape. I hope what we have shared today gives you a little more insight into why we live here and wouldn’t live anywhere else. If you would like to live here too be sure to call Nick today to see all of the options available to you!
