Mid Cape Cod Real Estate Information

Inclusive of the entire south-facing shore of the cape, Mid Cape is one of three sections that comprise the prolific Cape Cod in southeastern Massachusetts. Besides being a very unique area, Mid Cape also serves as the land connection between the mainland and the Upper and Lower Capes. The name of Mid Cape is somewhat confusing as it is not in the middle of Upper and Lower Capes but rather the region farthest west. Despite attempts to change the name, Mid Cape has retained its historic name despite the misunderstanding it may incur. Residents and visitors looking to travel to the Upper and Lower capes by road must first travel through Mid Cape. The towns of Barnstable, Yarmouth, and Dennis are Mid Cape?s largest in terms of population and tend to be the centers of activity. Mid Cape also serves commercial and industrial hub for Cape Cod.

As an essential part of the prosperous Cape Cod history that stretches back to the early 1500s, Mid Cape has successfully managed to maintain a large portion of its past. In fact, the cape?s maritime past and dynamic heritage continues to fuel the vibe of the community today. In line with the rest of Cape Cod, Mid Cape?s local cuisine not only stimulates the taste buds of local residents but also attracts hoards of visitors throughout the year because of its showcase of well-known products including delectable shellfish like oysters, clams, and lobster.

Known for its beautiful beaches and warm waters along Nantucket Sound, Mid Cape is quite popular with beachgoers. Kalmus Beach in Hyannis is one of the most famous ones because of its popular windsurfing and ocean sports. The beach also has significant historical implications as one of the first instances of open-space preservation in the nation. The area has been blocked from any development by law.
Hyannis Harbor is also located in Mid Cape and is a hub of private boating. Hundreds of yachts are moored at the harbor throughout the year. Often times, oceangoers use their watercraft for a relaxing day at sea on the way to islands like Martha?s Vineyard, Nantucket, or just to take a spin around the calm waters of Nantucket Sound. The Barnstable Harbor that opens out into the bay is highly frequented by boaters both because of its proximity to mainland Massachusetts but also because of the protection afforded by the land around it.
