Cockle Cove is my favorite beach in Chatham MA (Cape Cod) where I've rented a house for part of the summer or fall for the past 25 years.
I love doing travel research/planning for myself, friends & family --consider it almost as much fun as actually being there! So I think TripAdvisor is terrific; I've learned so much from others here... and no one's trip report is ever too long imo :-)
Prefer "mom-and-pop" motels & other local establishments or renting a vacation apartment/house over chain lodging, but enjoy tent camping & sometimes indulging in luxury accommodations too. My favorite travel MO? A meandering road trip with an eye towards the off-beat or settling in at one particular destination and doing in-depth exploration of the environs.
