2018 Annual Guide: Dennis
Dennis Village • Dennisport • East Dennis • South Dennis • West Dennis
Sesuit Harbor is hard to beat for classic Cape scenes, with boats chugging out and folks casting lines from the jetty. To get a bird’s-eye view of the harbor and all of Cape Cod, visit the unique stone Scargo Tower, overlooking Scargo Lake. The lake itself is named for a Native American princess, whose sachem father, legend has it, created it for her.
Crowe’s Pasture is an incredible treasure: 250 acres of meadow, woods, salt marsh and tidal flats crisscrossed with dirt roads and hiking trails. As a bonus, it’s dog friendly! Indian Lands Conservation Area in South Dennis is another favorite for its scenic trails with pretty views of Bass River.
Mom & Pops:
The Underground Bakery, tucked behind the post office in Dennis Village, has amazing food, from bakery items to hearty sandwiches, along with excellent cappuccinos. Chef-owners Ian and Laurie are proud to make just about everything they serve from scratch.
Head to the Cape Cod Museum of Art for “Artfull Thursdays,” with fun programs all year. On Sundays, enjoy their “Music & More” series, featuring 12 great performances through March. End the summer season on a high note with the annual All American Town of Dennis Fireworks, complete with a bonfire and live music.
