Cape Cod Magazine Releases Best-Of List
February 27, 2012
Call it coincidence or a case of great minds thinking alike, but New England Boating ran its destination feature on Red Brook Harbor at the same time Cape Cod Magazine released its “Best Of” list, which includes Kingman Yacht Center as an Editor’s Pick for Best Stopover.
“This is the boaters’ destination on the eastern shore of Buzzards Bay. Located in scenic, sheltered Red Brook Harbor, it offers slips and moorings for seasonal and transient guests. Meander on up to the Chart Room for a classic seafood dinner or just grab an Adirondack chair outside on the crushed oyster shells with all the other Nantucket Red-wearin’ folk under the waning sun and enjoy a beverage. 1 Shipyard Lane, Cataumet (Latitude 41° 40’ 36” Longitude 70° 37’ 0”), 508-563-7136, www.kingmanyachtcenter.com”
Other water-related picks include Goose Hummock Shop as the best place to start a journey to nature:
“Goose Hummock won’t be able to provide you with the Popeye muscles you might need to reel in the striper that strikes your fishing line, but for the rest of your outdoor adventure needs, they’ve got it covered. Boating, fishing, and hunting supplies? Check. Kayak rentals, lessons, and tours? Check. _A full-day fishing adventure? You got it. The shop is named after the tiny island inlet near Nauset Marsh, to where countless amounts of geese used to flock. Don’t wait until the end of the summer to hitch up a kayak and take it out through the Cape Cod waters. Route 6A, Orleans, 508-255-0455 (kayak tours and lessons, 508-255-2620), www.goose.com or www.goosemarine.com”
