One of the best places to live on earth, but the old rich summer people that live here for 2 months (july & august) ruin the beach nights for the locals by calling the police on bonfires and such. The local youths that tough out the long hard winters (while the rich old farts go to their homes in florida) love to drink and have fun in the summer, and will never stop for any tourists!
Johnny Local: "Hey dude pretty awsome night on Cape Cod huh?"
Sammy Livehere: "Ya man wicked, you can see bonfires all the way down to P-Town. I just hope Old Man Rivers dosnt call the cops on us again"
Johnny Local: I know that guy's a dick, these are our beaches too!
Sammy Livehere: I know man! lets pound some beers and enjoy the night on this awsome awsome place to live
small peninsula off massachusetts that sucks money out of tourists and retired millionaires to survive, since the traditional fishing industry is slowly dying - native cod all but wiped out. beautiful beaches protected by the government since the 1950's, but that meant the locals had to give up their beach camps. basically we hate tourists but without them we'd be totally impoverished. there is nothing for kids to do so most of them destroy their brains with drugs & alcohol. everyone says they're going to leave but never manage it and stay working as a landscaper/fisherman/carpenter/waitress/cashier etc. the winters are horrible and in the summer tourists are everywhere. real estate is too expensive for anyone to have a nice house. all the land not protected by federal government is being gobbled up by rich people from far away who want to live "out in the boonies". cape cod has conservative strongholds like chatham in the south ("a quaint drinking town with a fishing problem") and liberal strongholds like provincetown, mecca for artists and homosexuals, in the north. primarily white, but recently there's been an influx of brazilians. the predominant subculture is punk, since we're all so angry at our lives but can't do anything about it. people who leave tend to stay gone. local slang includes "wicked" meaning extremely, "pisser" meaning awesome, and "wash-ashore" for someone whose family hasn't lived on cape cod for more than, say, 50 years or so...more...
Cape Cod has bumper to bumper traffic in the summer, and empty roads in the winter. Tourists show up for the good weather and run and hide before the snow comes.
Cape Cod was covered in snow and no one was there to care.
Best Fucking Place on Earth
Our little piece of heaven on earth.
sand, sea, sun, what more could you want? and its still all there in the winter even if the temperature drops.
There is much to be said about this place, were there is little to do (other then drugs) in the ten-month spand between September and June; although during the summer months this place becomes a 1960’s run down summer dream. But, unlike it’s most famous resident, cape cod didn’t have the pleasure of dieing in the 1960’s, cause with Kennedy’s death so died the cape cod dream. So, now today cape cod is filled with the withering dreamers of that generation, all now the conservative voting majority.
Old people in slow moving cars, with GW04, and drunken kids stumbling in the streets.
In the summer, could be regarded as one of the awesomest places in the world. The winter is hell, but after the storms, it is very quiet and beautiful. Known for its small-town character and charm. No cobblestone streets to be found here, since they are completely out of place. But there is nothing to do in the winter, since most of the businesses cater only to tourists
. Take Provincetown
, for example. During the summer, the daytime population swells to nearly 80,000, but in the winter, the entire town is boarded up and not a soul can be found on Commercial Street, the "bustling" main artery of the town. The unemployment is above national average because the only jobs left are those catering to tourists or the likes of the tourist season. But it still is awesome.
dude, cape cod is the shit year round, even though there's nothing to do for most of it.
