Welcome to the Upper Cape. The area of Cape Cod generally referred to as the "Upper" Cape is the first part of the Cape that visitors to Cape Cod see. The Upper Cape includes the towns nearest the Sagamore and Bourne Bridges and the Cape Cod Canal. Bourne, Sandwich, Sagamore, Falmouth, Mashpee, Cotuit, Osterville, Centerville and Marstons Mills are considered to be on the Upper Cape. Hyannis is considered to be towards the Upper Cape as well, though we've chosen to group all of the Barnstable towns in the Mid Cape area, primarily because Barnstable contains a number of towns, most of which are nearer the Mid Cape area than the Upper Cape. The Upper Cape region also includes the easternmost part of the Buzzards Bay region.
