Guest Reviews & Cape San Blas Trip Reports – Barrier Dunes Vacation Rentals on Cape San Blas & their visit to “The Forgotten Coast! When you return from your Cape San Blas vacation we would love to have your vacation review & pictures too! Would highly recommend the Cape to anyone who travels with their pets.Wendy, Just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our first trip to the Cape. We found the home very clean and well stocked, (which was much appreciated). We travel with our 8yr old Maltipoo, who loves the beach as much as we do!! This was our first time to area, but hopefully not our last.
Fire is not often regarded as a friend of old houses, but just such devastation in 1878 allowed Cape May to reinvent itself as a Victorian seaside Mecca.
Both towers of the light station were designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970. The lighthouse's design was based on the 1767 Cape Henlopen Light.
In the 1870s, concerns about the condition and safety of the old Lighthouse at Cape Henry following a lightning strike that caused large cracks in the structure led to the construction of a new, taller, lighthouse at Cape Henry (pictured to the right) in 1881, which stands 350 feet to the northeast of the original tower.
It extends from Provincetown in the northeast to Woods Hole in the southwest, and is bordered by Plymouth to the northwest.
Since 1914, Cape Cod has been separated from the mainland by the Cape Cod Canal.
