Hmm... 2002 is out there a bit but should be OK... if I gotta go out there to secure people's interests, so be it.

Brewster's Nickerson State Park, or Washburn Island Wildlife Refuge (requires boats). Nickerson has 5 trout ponds, some of the best in the state - in addition to the big game coastal fishing nearby. The "posher" can choose from a seemingly infinite variety of places to stay on the hotel / motel mecca known as Cape Cod. In fact we could all stay in hotels on a shoestring if we split rooms.
