We have owned several editions of this book and we always look forward to the new edition. This one is no exception. The author provides a heft of research with real insider knowledge that makes this our most valuable Cape Cod guidebook resource. It's all presented in a very accessible manner. From on-target restaurant reviews to off-the-beaten path explorations, this book is an essential for both the seasoned Cape dweller and new visitors alike. Unlike many more "corporate" guidebooks, this is our most reliable resource because the author has the depth of knowledge of one who has returned to the topic many times with an eye for fine-tuning information. If you wanted to hire a personal guide to take you around Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, you'd want that guide to be Kim Grant. We often lend our copy to our visiting guests and they cling to it like a bible...they love it. Sine qua non.

It is a comprehensive book to be sure. My primary complaints tho were the restaurant recommendations. Some of her 'hits' were mediocre, and she missed a few gems that we got from the locals. Overall,a very handy book to use on the Cape.

Sadly disappointed by this guide. It is completely lacking in opinion to the point where you are left guessing about a lot. Its almost as if this author didn't want to offend any of her friends on the Cape by giving reviews. Instead, she simply writes a short passage on each place that doesn't really provide much insight- meaning, I could gain the same information by going to the establishment's website. Since the author points out almost immediately how much she has frequented the Cape in comparison to other guide authors, you would expect her to have built up an arsenal of opinions. As a first time traveler to the Cape, I want to know where you, an experienced Cape Dweller, would NOT eat or the first place that you WOULD! Otherwise this guide becomes nothing more than a portable copy of the yellow pages. She doesn't use a rating system, no stars, not listed in order of preference, nothing. I was debating between purchasing this book or the Frommer's Guide and I now see I should have bought the Frommer's guide. You may not agree with everything the Frommer's authors have to say, but at least they are not shy in sharing their thoughts and opinions with you. When traveling to places as wonderfully eccentric as Provincetown for example, I would like to know what I'm in for before I plan a night out on the town. This is a reference book when I was seeking more of a guide.

Even if you never visit the Cape, this is one of those interesting, thoughtfully written guides that can even satisfy the armchair traveler. We're new to exploring the Cape and I've been delighted with where the book has taken us so far. We've discovered wonderful places we would not have found otherwise. The book is sensibly laid out, town by town, but the index helps you find all the good bookstores, for example. The author is selective; it seems she's exhaustively explored EVERYTHING on the Cape so you don't have to, and she tells you where to find the best of everything. Highly recommend.

If you want to explore the Cape and find the beaches worthwhile visiting as well as biking trails and so much more—This is the book for you. I have used mine for over 3 years now and have discovered towns that I probably would never have as well as beautiful shorelines. I am never disappointed when I arrive to Kim's recommendations. I also gave one as a b-day gift to a fellow cape codder who LOVEs it as much as I do. It never leaves my car. ... Didn't really want to write a review since we don't really need any MORE people down here ... ;-)
