The Whole Cape Is Going Insane, Except For THIS Town

Let's face it, you've got to be a little bit nuts to live on Cape Cod.

I don't mean that in a bad way, it's just that it takes a unique breed to deal with the stress of being a Cape resident, especially in the summer--dealing with tourists, having it take an extra 45 minutes just to run to the grocery store down the street and don't even think about visiting the mainland on a Friday, because you're not getting home until around dinner time on Sunday
