Cape Cod’s long tradition as a premiere travel destination has grown a vibrant maritime community. In addition to more than 200,000 residents, over 4 million people visit each year. Across 413 square miles, that’s a population density of nearly 9,600 people per square mile – nearly equal to Boston! The Cape thrives on tourism, and we want our visitors to feel at home. That means we must take joint ownership in creating an environment that remains pristine. Whether you’re here for a day, a week, or all your life, you leave a footprint on our story.
