Gifts and Shopping—the concept lends itself perfectly to the idea of, “Something for you, something for me.” And the Cape, Islands and surrounding coastal communities are literally packed with places to find something for everyone. Whether you are a visitor picking up a special something to remember your trip, or take home to others, or a lifelong resident with a special occasion looming on the calendar that requires a special outfit, a specialty food item or a gift to mark one of life’s milestones—there are vendors, retailers and purveyors that are stocked with unique and memorable items that will bring a smile to anyone’s face.

The region is known for fantastic beaches, adventurous waterways, unforgettable biking and hiking trails and a plethora of golf courses, pickleball and tennis courts. And there are plenty of businesses across the Cape and beyond that have the latest gear to make your outdoor pursuits successful and enjoyable.

And art; it is literally around every corner. For over a century the region has become synonymous with arts and culture. From affordable renditions of favorite beaches, harbors and vistas to world-class portraits, abstracts and landscapes by artists of notoriety and importance; it is all available across the Cape and Islands.
