Yankee Magazine has announced its 2011 Readers’ Choice Winners–and Cape Cod has won two. The Readers’ Choice survey was part of the magazine’s 2nd Annual “Best of New England” and includes winners from Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
Yankee readers chose the Cape as the best weekend getaway for families. According to one of the magazine’s readers, “Cape Cod is simply wonderful in the summer-sun, sand, and great seafood.” It was also noted that much of what attracts visitors to the Cape, exists year-round.
Cape Cod Rail Trail also won an award for the category of best bike trail. Readers liked the trail because it is perfect for all ages.
There were also categories for best season, but Boston, Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont snagged those. I must say, I was a bit surprised that all the Readers’ Choice food winners were from everywhere but the Cape. Which makes me think Yankee Magazine readers haven’t been to some of my favorite places!
