    Fourth of July:  Three WanderMust Spots

    Weekend Wanderings

    1. Play in the Gateway to the Cape: Wareham

    Wareham is not technically on Cape Cod, but this historically rich seaside town deserves a bit more buzz.  Travelers have flocked to Wareham to enjoy over forty-five-miles of waterfront since the nineteenth century.https://www.mermaidsoncapecod.com/products/get-nauti-racerback-tankSwift’s beach is a perfect spot for the whole family.  There’s not only a public boat ramp, but at low tide, there’s a sandbar to explore by kayak or stand-up-paddleboard. It’s a super safe beach to take the kids; no need to worry about an undertow because the water’s calm and perfect for wading.   If you’re on the beach more than an hour, you’ll even catch Perry’s Ice Cream Truck. There’s a day pass available for non-residents and an annual sticker pass for residents available at Town Hall. https://www.mermaidsoncapecod.com/products/american-flag-tee-or-tank-starfish-stars-and-mermaid-stripesWareham is also the ideal spot to stop and get away from the traffic jams.  Take a trip to Buzzard’s Bay and bike, walk, or rollerblade along the Cape Cod Canal.  If you start out at the Railroad Bridge, you’ll see a brand-new playground with a Splash Pad for the kiddos to cool off before you set out to escape to the Cape. Be sure you travel along the scenic highway route!https://www.mermaidsoncapecod.com/products/racerback-tank-mermaids-on-cape-cod

    2. Hang out in Hyannis

    https://www.mermaidsoncapecod.com/products/romper-in-modal-cupro Wanna know how to kick it on Cape Cod like the Kennedy clan? Take the 1-hour Hy-line Cruise tour past the Kennedy complex and then visit family-friendly Veterans Beach, home of historical shrines honoring John F. Kennedy and the Korean War Memorial. If you wander over to West Barnstable, Sandy Neck Beach boasts six miles of picture perfect shoreline. And if you’re up for a real off-the-beaten-path adventure, there’s even off-road beach trail access. 


    Don’t miss out on an afternoon of shopping local and sipping beer from 3-6 pm on Friday during Farmer’s Market Meets Happy Hour at Cape Cod Beer

     3. Wander to Wellfleet

     Welcome to Cape Cod National Seashore!  

    The small seaside town of Wellfleet is divided into two sections: oceanside and a harborside.  I’m inviting you to wander with me on the oceanside where the earth crumbles to the sea; Wellfleet Beachcomber, Cahoon Hollow Beach. If you plan your trip and arrive early enough, you can snag a parking spot in the front lot where you’ll pull right up to the top of a sand dune showcasing spectacular ocean views. 

    Sea? Nothing but breathtaking horizon!

    Need a budget-friendly beach day?

    Pack up your cooler and beach bag essentials (just prepare for a journey down the super steep, sliding sand dune--the only way down to the beach!) and park your fins in the sand for an unforgettable day on the Cape Cod National Seashore. You won’t get any shell phone service so prepare to unplug and be one with nature. 

    You’ll still want to bring your phone or camera because I can almost guarantee you’ll spot several seals playing in the waves. Snap the shot and frame it for your very own FREE souvenir. 

    Be sure to pack your sweatshirt or a light jacket since it gets chilly once the sun sets beyond the sand dunes.  Our Fuzzy Fleece Stripe Official Mermaid Gear Hoodie and matching Anchor Tote Sea Bag are perfect patriotic gear to represent your inner Mermaid this July 4th.


     Looking for a killer Beach Bar Atmosphere?

    Follow Our Fins to Wellfleet BeachComber Restaurant & Oyster Bar! 

    Dress to impress in your best boutique fashion or keep it casual in cutoffs and Get Nauti tank or tee. You’ll feel #beachbeautiful simply standing at the bar ordering drinks while you’re looking out at the breathtaking ocean views.

    After a long day riding waves, I usually reward myself with a Grilled Chicken Sandwich, French Fries, Pickle, and a Frozen Miami Vice cocktail to wash it all down.


    As a single mom who craves a night out every now and then…I’ve had some of the most memorable moments watching the sunset, listening to live music, and mingling at "The Comah" after dark. 

    Bonus: Catch Cape Cod Fireworks

    Anywhere you travel on Cape Cod you’re sure to find Fabulous Firework Displays to Celebrate Independence Day!

    Fins Up For Fitness!

    Fins Up For Fitness!

    So long whacky winter weather.  Hello sunshine, sandy feet, salty hair, and swimsuit season!

    Yes, I know…some of us dread shedding our threads and showing some skin.  But- why not embrace warmer weather by making it your most active time of the year?

    Sure, easier said than done, right?  Not so much! All you need is the right setting, and I have the perfect location in mind:  The Cape Cod Canal!

    Mermaids are marvelous no matter what shape or size, and no two tails are ever alike!  Why not empower one another to love the fins we’re in?

    It’s no secret that a daily dose of exercise invigorates our mind, body, and soul.  So, I thought I’d share some of my favorite Official Mermaids on Cape Cod Fitness Gear and challenge you to some fitness fun in the Summer sun.

     In a seashell:  

    Whether you’re here for a day or a stay-you won’t want to miss out on a trip to the Cape Cod Canal!   The canal is about a 7-mile-long, man-made water-way that traverses the narrow neck of land joining Cape Cod to the mainland. 

    (Check out the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce to learn more about the canal history.  Be sure to take advantage of their Interactive Visitor's Center that's educational and fun for ALL ages!) 

    It’s truly a sight to sea!

    Like so many more native mermaids, I was lucky enough to spend my summers on Cape Cod.  As a little mermaid, I mostly rode my bike and (tried) to rollerblade.  Now that I’ve got more tales to tell (aka I’m older), I often visit the canal for some fitness fun. 

    (Love My Tank Top? GET YOURS HERE)

    I usually start my journey at the scenic Buzzards's Bay Railroad Bridge

    I enjoy walking and/or running along the canal, and I’ve seen some of the most spectacular sunrise and sunsets along the way. I’ve even spotted a seal or two swimming through!

    Remember, mermaids need to drink lots of water to keep their scales and hair shiny.  Be sure you pack your Mermaids On Cape Cod Aluminum Water Bottle so you can stay hydrated AND help save marine life by tossing those single use plastic bottles!

    My goal is to motivate and inspire you to grab your Official Mermaid Gear and head down to the Cape Cod Canal for a salty, seaside sweat session!
