My Favorite Spot — Dennis

People often ask me my favorite spot in New England, it’s impossible to choose! New England is so diverse and changes with the seasons. My favorite spot on the cape during the summer is totally different from my favorite spot in Maine. Today I’m happy to introduce a new series, My Favorite Spot, I will feature my favorite spots in various towns and New England getaways. This will be updated throughout the year so you can get an inside look at all the best spots throughout the seasons.

Today I’m happy to start with Dennis, Cape Cod. Dennis will always hold a special place in my heart, I grew up coming here every summer, just like my dad and granddad did. Cape Cod has a little something for everyone, beaches, hiking trails, golf, water sports, fishing, and so much more!

One of my favorite spots in Dennis is Sesuit Harbor Cafe. Located right on the water, sesuit harbor sits on the bay side of the cape. If you don’t know where to look for the cafe you will miss it, why? Because it is located behind the marina! Sit and watch boats get out in the water, watch people take off on jet skis and enjoy some of the freshest seafood out there.

I stopped by the other day for a mid day snack, I walked around the the raw bar and ordered some oysters. If you’ve never been you have to try their lobster roll! Sit outside at a picnic table and watch boats come and go from the marina. Sesuit Harbor is definitely worth a stop if you’re new to Dennis, or have been coming to Dennis for years and never been! After take a drive along the water and take in the amazing views!

Seersucker at Sesuit

Its those small out of the way places that have the best food! If you’re in the mood for a killer Lobster roll check out Sesuit Harbor Cafe. It is the most charming spot, right on the water. Get to Lobster roll, you won’t be sorry!

Hydrangea Lane

One of my favorite things about visiting the Cape is all the beautiful hydrangeas. It is actually the PH in the soil that determined their color. Up in Boston most hydrangeas bloom pink or purple, but on the cape they are always a beautiful shade of blue. My dad planted some special in our yard at home so that they would bloom blue every year!

Packing for the cape is normally rushed, I toss a whole bunch of dresses, a swimsuit, and some sandals in a bag and hope for the best. I was happy to find this oldie but goodie in my bag! Its vineyard vines a few years ago, the v-neck was a little deep for me so I had the fabric sewed up a little higher. I love the stripes, it is the perfect preppy dress! My tote is from Madewell and I got my hat at Nordstrom a couple of summers ago.

Ready for Nantucket

I feel like a broken record, but is it summer yet? I can’t wait for weekends on Nantucket this summer, I’m all ready with this fabulous clutch from Perch, and my bright pants. I love spending summers by the ocean. I grew up going to the Cape with my family and the past couple summers have fallen in love with Nantucket! Hoping to get a few weeks down there this summer!

My pants are super old from vineyard vines, and I got my blazer from vineyard vines last fall! I love how classic and New England this outfit is. Everyone needs a navy blazer in their closet, end of story!

As I get ready to graduate I am not sure how much time I’ll have by the ocean this summer, all part of growing up and getting a job! Terrifying I know, but only a few more weeks of school and then its time for the real world. Hope my fellow seniors are enjoying the last few weeks of college and making plans for the future! As scary as it can be I am very excited for this next chapter, stay tuned for a blog post all about my post graduation plans! In the mean time I’ll keep dreaming of Nantucket.

What’s your favorite place to go in the summer?
