Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard & Nantucket: An Explorer's Guide, 10th Edition

Kim Grant

Some of the greatest vacation delights in the United States can be found on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. And Kim Grant, a 25-year veteran travel writer, has combed the Cape and islands yet again to research the tenth edition of this perennially popular guide. She provides readers with the best of the best: selective, up-to-date recommendations for lodgings of every stripe; hundreds of dining reviews covering everything from clam shacks to four-star restaurants; daylong itineraries for every pursuit; and much more. Follow Grant’s lead to find nature preserves, bike trails, beaches, lighthouses, antiques shops, local artisans, summer theatre, and nightlife—whatever your taste, budget, time frame, or interest, she never steers you wrong.

This opinion- and information-packed guide also includes 22 up-to-date maps and an alphabetical “What’s Where” subject guide to help you plan your trip. Handy icons point out places that offer extra value, are family-friendly, welcome pets, provide free Wi-Fi, and are open year-round. The popular and eminently useful “A Perfect Day” feature offers ideas about how to spend your time, hour by hour, so you won’t miss the best opportunities.

Whether you’re looking for a quiet retreat or boisterous nightlife, bird-watching or whale-watching, ocean beaches or kettle ponds, drive-ins or professional theater, the Cape and islands offer them all. And the very best resource available to guide you is the tried-and-true Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard & Nantucket: An Explorer’s Guide. Most readers come to think of it as a trusted friend.

Travel writer and photographer Kim Grant is also the author of Hawaii: An Explorerís Guide (Countryman) and several Lonely Planet guides. She divides her time between Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Sausalito, California.
