It’s an interesting thought, but when one considers a break on the Cape, plans or activities that immediately spring to mind might include; the wonderful beaches and dunes, the salty air, fabulous trails, spectacular sunsets, or an abundance of fish restaurants.
Perhaps the arts should be added to that list. Whether it’s an outdoor and often free music concert during the summer season, or a variety of drama theatres, the Lower Cape has something for everyone.
The Nauset Beach Concert Series offers everything from acoustic, to rock, to reggae, every Monday night, running to August 26 at the Gazebo on the beach.
Step back in time and spend an evening at an original drive-in theatre. http://www.wellfleetcinemas.com/drive-in-theatre
One of the highlights of the summer season has to be the 24th Annual Cape Cod Five Pops in the Park where the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra perform classics under the direction of Jung-Ho Pak, Artistic Director and Conductor. http://artsfoundation.org/pops-in-the-park
