Okay, okay, so I wouldn’t want to actually “live in” Jaws, but must we always be so literal? Nothing screams summer like the infamous 1975 shark thriller. Set in fictional Amity Island off the coast of Cape Cod, Jaws is delicious blend of nautical prep, horror and 70s campy goodness.

I know this movie had most of us quaking in terror as kids and I bet it’s inspired more than its fair share of serious shark phobias. Take heart however, wikipedia says that your chance of getting mortally wounded by a shark is a minuscule 1 in 264.1 million. Also helpful to know- In 2009, more people were crushed to death by soda machines than were attacked by sharks. So put on that swimsuit and get your new england nautical on without fear. Just please remember to give the soda machines at the beach a wide berth, it’s for your own good. -amy m.
