Did you know...

     ...Cape Cod was not the original name?

     In 1602, eighteen years before the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth, an English explorer landed on what is now Cape Cod and called the place...

a) Cape Elizabeth named for the Virgin Queen who funded the expedition

b) Shoal Hope, for confirmation of sighting land, at last

c) Cape Raleigh, named for the captain's mentor, Sir Walter Raleigh

d) Dismal Island, because, at first, they thought the land was an island, covered in a "shroud of fog."

See the answer here and learn more about Cape Cod, Nantucket Sound and Long Beach.
