BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday this year. You might be displeased at calculating the long weekend, but the whole hump-day thing is just fine with the Cape Cod Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber's CEO, Wendy Northcross, tells WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Karyn Regal she hopes people will simply make a whole week out of it.
"The perfect answer is, take the whole week off," Northcross said. "The net impact for us on Cape Cod is, it just stretches out the business over 7-8, maybe 10 days."
She says everything is open--and even if it rains, there are plenty of indoor galleries and shopping opportunities for refuge. She does suggest you reserve a place to stay--it is the Fourth of July on the Cape, after all.
"We try to tell people, especially the Fourth of July holiday either pre-holiday of after, make some reservations," she said. "If we're ever going to be sold out, it's this time of year."
