Teka and Kora on Cape Cod
October 12, 2021

Finding a dog friendly beach in Massachusetts in the summer can be a challenge, but luckily, my absolute favorite beach has dog friendly areas year round. Cape Cod National Seashore is a 40 mile stretch of the prettiest beach on the Cape (visit the NPS website for current rules and restrictions), and it’s my favorite place for a sandy beach adventure.

Because we’re on the East Coast, the sun rises over the ocean, which means the prettiest colors and views happen right at dawn. It’s a bit of a crazy adventure to make it to this beach in time for a summer sunrise, but I don’t think you can truly call it an “adventure” if it isn’t a little crazy! When the reward for an early start is brilliant colors and a quiet beach with two amazing dogs, I’ll happily wake up this early every day.

This adventure was Teka and Kora’s first trip to the ocean, and I think it’s safe to say that the beach was a hit!

I had so much fun exploring and playing on the beach with Teka and Kora! I couldn’t imagine a better way to start the day.
