Memorial Day is upon us and the “open” signs have officially gone up at the Cape Cod bridges. Yes…It’s official, Cape Cod is open for business once again.
Mother Nature was smiling down upon us this past weekend as great weather helped to ring in the official start of the tourist season. A steady supply of visitors flocked to the Cape to help kick off the summer season, allaying fears that the high price of gas would keep people away.
It seems that businesses across the Cape reported better than expected revenues. Perhaps the price of gas is keeping people closer to home, translating into more visitors for Cape Cod.
Let us take a moment to remember that Memorial Day is not just about kicking off the summer season, but remembering those who have served our country. The next time that you see a veteran or an active member of the military, please thank them for their service to this great country.
In the meantime, I will be doing my part to help stimulate the Cape Cod economy by hanging out at the beach…Eating at my favorite restaurants…Shopping at my favorite stores…And spending as much of my hard earned money as I can before Labor Day. And then, with any luck at all, I can continue to do those things all winter long…After the “open” signs on the bridges come down!
