Ray Bartlett offers his extensive knowledge on this classic New England destination, from fried clams and proper “chowda” to canoeing, windsurfing, and sailing. Bartlett narrows in on the unique charm of the region, where travelers can sit on the beach alongside celebrities and then go eat fried clams on picnic tables and catch a drive-in movie. He also expands greatly upon the many options for outdoor recreation in the area. With details on accommodations, dining, and coverage of the lesser-known paths and waterways, Moon Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard & Nantucket gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.

Ray Bartlett is a true Cape Codder: Except for college and a brief two years in Japan, he’s lived on the sandy peninsula his entire life. He began his travel writing career at the age of 18 when he jumped a freight train for 500 miles and sold an article and photos about the experience to the Cape Cod Times. More than two decades later, Ray is still wandering the globe with pen and camera in hand, but he’s always happiest to return home.

Ray is often on the road in Japan, Korea, or Mexico. In addition to publishing numerous travel articles and books, he has also produced videos on such disparate topics as New England in autumn, Cape Cod whale-watching, and a Japanese fertility festival. Ray is a featured guest on Around the World, a syndicated radio show, and he has appeared on PRI’s The World. He owns and operates a top-rated onsen website,

When not on assignment in different parts of the globe, Ray is on the Cape, where he drinks too much coffee and burns too much midnight oil. For more information, visit his website at
