f antique shops had personalities, Diesel and Lulu’s would be spunky and sophisticated, an urban contradiction to the traditional old Cape Codders lining Route 6A. Combining antique and modern items, the standout boutique aims to please every age and gender: A baby section displays bedding and signs that say, “Eat. Sleep. Poop,” while a selection of “Mantiques” offers classy furniture for men. There are even homemade treats for the family pet, with the proceeds donated to Greyhound Friends, a greyhound rescue and adoption organization. O’Brien

The Cape Cod & Hyannis Railroad, which runs behind Diesel and Lulu’s, connected to Boston’s South Station until 1959, when a bridge over the Neponset River burned down. The bridge was not rebuilt until 1997, to carry MBTA commuter service.
