The Summer 2021 Hit List to Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard

By

With the mercury rising and normalcy in sight, an escape to the Cape and its offshore islands is likely in the cards. Cape Cod is enjoying the return of vacation-date standbys like Water Street Kitchen and Fin, as well as buzzy P-Town spots, including Spindler’s and Strangers & Saints.

And on Martha’s Vineyard, classics such as the Port Hunter and Alchemy Bar & Bistro are ready to go for another summer of service, with others like Seaweed’s not far behind. Whether you’re escaping for the weekend or settling down for the season, you’ll want to make your plans — starting with our handy Hit List.

(And if you’re headed to Nantucket, we’ve got you covered there, too.)
