Why We Love Dennis, MA
From the show-stopping sunsets at Mayflower Beach, to the charming ambiance of Scargo Cafe, to the Broadway-caliber performances at The Cape Playhouse. The mid-Cape town of Dennis is calling your name.
Fun fact: did you know Bette Davis was discovered while working at the Cape Playhouse as an usher? The Cape Playhouse is one of the country’s oldest summer theaters. Dennis was also home to the late bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark. Located largely on picturesque Route 6A, also known as the Old King’s Highway, Dennis is dotted with home galleries, back yard farm stands, and cottage antique shops, all possessing an Olde Cape Cod vibe harkening back to a simpler time.
With five unique villages, it’s a tight-knit town where community is part of the character. Serving as home to the Cape Abilities farm, which is operated by the non-profit organization of empowering individuals with disabilities, allowing them to live meaningful and active lives across Cape Cod since 1968. In addition to the most delicious tomatoes this side of the Bourne and Sagamore bridges, the farm features Cape Cloth, a socially-conscious clothing company founded by Cape Cod local Sean Fitzpatrick. Cape Cloth is quickly becoming the iconic brand of the region, in part due to its mission of donating one dollar of each apparel sale to Cape Abilities.
Needless to say, this is the kind of place you want to call home. In the high season, take your pick of luxurious warm water beaches while enjoying their solitude in the winter months. Offering a central location to nearby Hyannis, which features countless options for department and chain store shopping, you’ll also love the slower pace of this quiet locale.
And whether you’re relocating or retiring, if you’re ready for a life change, you’re just a short drive to Cape Cod Community College, where some of the finest professors choose to share their knowledge, skill, and practical experience.
