Some of the best Striped Bass fishing on the East Coast ! Bourne Bridge area is amazing. Once you find out where in CC you'll be, I can be more specific.

Yeah, I've spent a LOT of time on the Cape. It's a GREAT place. Get's pretty crowded in the summer, but there is miles and MILES of beach. VERY laid back between Labor Day and Memorial Day. All kinds of great fishing. Housing is DAMN expensive. It's fairly large so where you work will help decide where to live. Do some exploring...quaint little well preserved towns (Chatham, Truro, Provincetown, etc.). Hyannis is more modern/generic/blah.

A couple of "must do's":

Go on a whale watch tour

trip to the islands (Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket)

Weekend in Beantown (can take a ferry from P-town)

Red Sox vs. Yankees at Fenway Park (avoid the bleachers. Best seats are above the "Green Monster")

Fall foliage trip to New Hampshire, Vermont, and/or Maine, in Mid- October. Get up in the Mountains.

Plymouth Plantation

4th of July Boston Pops concert/fireworks on the Esplanade (Charles River).

I could go on and on.....ENJOY! Oh yeah, get some warm clothes!

sbp17 might be able to answer some of those questions for you. He spent a summer up there playing in the Cape Cod baseball league.

I played baseball in the cape one summer in Orleans. I kind of got a bad taste in my mouth just because Im use the the beautiful coast of florida. I heard all of this hipe about how great the cape was and I was really dissappointed after living there for a month.

The beaches were not as pretty, the food was not as good, the fishing was ok if you get to know the area but you will be targeting different species like striped bass and blue fish, the whole area I thought was pretty boring, the people were not as nice and the girls were not as HOT!!

Just my 02 cents on the cape. Not trying to dissapoint you but I really didnt like it after living in the paradise that we have in florida.

Oh and I forgot to mention that I had to wear my winter clothes in the middle of July.
