Summer 2024 on the Cape and Islands

Josie Cataldo | 6/10/2022 (updated 6/23/2023)

Summer on the Cape and Islands will be here before we know it! The crystal-clear water will assume its summer blue/green hue, similar to our favorite shade of sea glass. Gentle waves at the bay will rock back and forth, ebbing and flowing, inviting WeNeedaVacation renters to splash in the salt water. Beach roses and pastel pink hydrangeas will decorate the white picket fences of the charming beach cottages that will hold fond memories for years to come. Our favorite restaurants will open back up to serve world famous seafood. Each meal will be paired with the sounds and sights of summer: live music and expansive water views.

Each day spent on the Cape and Islands will bring with it new excursions: back yard barbecues at your WeNeedaVacation rental nestled in the dunes of North Truro, nights spent under the lights watching the rising stars at Cape League games, bundling up in the bed of a pick-up truck at the drive-in, still sitting on the edge of your seat in anticipation no matter how many times you may have seen Jaws. There's nothing quite like summertime on the Cape and Islands, and WeNeedaVacation is here to ensure that the 2024 season is one you'll remember forever.
