A Look Back on 20 Years of Cape Cod Magazine

We’re all about celebrating 2018. Why? It marks our 20th year covering the Cape and Islands.

As we look back on two decades of Cape Cod Magazine, we are reminded of why the Cape is so special—the people, places, its rich history and unparalleled views. We look forward to 20 more years as the authority you turn to first for the BEST of Cape Cod!

But for now, we hope you enjoy learning a bit of our history…
