Wondering what other stories may have already appeared in OnCape Magazine? We have back issues for you to explore. Whether you missed the last edition of your favorite magazine or just discovered us. We want to enjoy our previous publications.


Your Guide To The
Upper Cape Is Here

This edition marks our fifth year of publishing the Best of the Upper Cape magazine, and with it we are bringing back our Best of the Upper Cape in-person event, thanks in part to our title sponsor, The Cooperative Bank of Cape Cod. We feel it is an encouraging sign that our business community can once again gather to celebrate. Another summer season on Cape Cod has come and gone. Our aim in publishing Best of the Upper Cape and hosting the attendant event in October is to recognize the communities’ businesses when they have had a chance to breathe as the summer gives way to autumn.

Best of the Upper Cape may be written and designed by the staff at the Enterprise, but the results are those of our readers. We worked hard to keep a strict separation between the staff and the voting processes to ensure that the winners in these pages won because our readership felt they deserved the recognition for a job welldone.

A few notes on the organization of the magazine: Wherever possible, we tried to list all of a business’s locations on the Upper Cape. In the interest of space, we made exceptions. Websites are listed with the homepage’s URL; we felt it didn’t do any good to have long strings of letters in a print magazine.

We hope you enjoy looking through these pages. So many on our staff worked hard to bring recognition to our local businesses, and we thank our readers for their votes.
