Driving to Cape Cod, you’ll take one of two bridges across the Cape Cod Canal. Arriving on the other side, you are officially on the Upper Cape, where attractions range from the scientific at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, to the artistic at the Sandwich Glass Museum, all the way to the unique, upscale district known as Mashpee Commons.

Experience the Upper Cape, where yesteryear and modern technology come together with the help of Yankee ingenuity.

  • The architects of Mashpee Commons had a hefty goal: to build an American shopping mall which would not impact negatively on the environment with urban sprawl and traffic congestion, but would instead enhance the community.

  • Glass is odd stuff. It’s not a liquid, it’s not a gas, and it’s not really a solid. Technically it’s classified as a rigid liquid. Add heat and it returns it to a workable liquid, and to the fun stuff twisting and turning at the end of the glass blowers pipe.
