Cape Cod Wave is an online magazine about the character and culture of Cape Cod featuring long-form journalism, short music videos, and stories about the essence of the best 70-mile stretch of land on Earth.
We have one simple mantra – we write about stuff we want to write about. This is not factory journalism. Please wander through our stories, categories, and topics. You will find that most of what we write is Evergreen, meaning it is timeless. We are a magazine, and occasionally we break news.
If you want to see how we introduced ourselves in May (and this also gives you a sense of who we are), please see Welcome To Cape Cod Wave.
Cape Cod is an interesting place. There was already plenty of good journalism on the Cape, but no one was doing exactly what we want to do, or the way we want to do it. So we started our own site. Rather than the news of the day, Cape Cod Wave covers the essence of a day on Cape Cod.
We want to celebrate the people, places, products and ideas that make Cape Cod a special place. We want to examine the issues that matter to all of us. We want to entertain you.
Since we are online, we hope to post new things here often. But we aim for quality, not quantity.
We hope to engage you, surprise you, maybe even enlighten you because we plan to talk to the smartest and most interesting people we can find on Cape Cod. And we think anyone on Cape Cod is smart and interesting. Otherwise, why would you be here?
This is a long peninsula, and we are a small staff. Over time, you will see stories from all parts of the Cape, but you may also notice our initial focus may be somewhat Falmouth-centric. We love traveling the Cape, but we live here. Soon, we hope to expand the roster of those contributing and the scope of what we write about.
We aim to have fun. Come on along. Let’s go surfing.
