Some of our favorites:


Wicked Oyster
Attracting visitors and locals, the Wicked Oyster provides excellent fare, from rave-worthy hamburgers to mouth-watering local seafood dishes.  One of the few restaurants open year-round - it's one of our favorites.

Sweet Escapes
Fabulous home-made ice-cream and more in Truro - wonderful for a stop off on Route 6 when returning from P-town or 9 holes on Highland golf course.

Mac's on the beach
It doesn't get much better than excellent local take-away down on the town beach/harbor.  Mac's provides some tables but its also great to wander the shoreline or find a bench and watch the boats come and go. 

Bookstore & Restaurant
A laid back eatery serving good hearty food down opposite Mayo beach in Wellfleet.  Open year-round - with a great mix of locals and visitors - it also boasts a wonderful second-hand bookstore, full of local memorabilia and other treats.  Browse and then eat - its a great way to spend any afternoon, particularly if the weather isn't accommodating.

Fanizzi's in P-town
Excellent restaurant in Provincetown - located in the southern end of town (direction Truro).  Great menu, great location on P-town harbor - ask for a table by the window.  Go for brunch and then stroll the P-town art galleries - highly recommended.

For all the family:

The ponds
The fresh water kettle ponds (see "All about Wellfleet page") are a delight to swim in and to kayak or canoe around.  Gull pond is one of the more popular, and hosts a pedalo/canoe rental outfit. 

The Orleans Cardinals have games all summer long and also a baseball camp for the kids. 

Mass Audubon on Wellfleet Bay
Excellent set of activities for all the family, including summer camp.

Castle Hill
Something for everyone - bring the artist out in you.   Castle Hill runs workshops throughout the summer in painting, photography, sculpture, etc.  Castle Hill has a national reputation, attracting first class artists, performers and writers, among others.  Book early!

Wellfleet library
A "star" library in 2009 (only 256 nation-wide) the library is an oasis of calm, offering seminars, kids activities, Internet access, etc.

P-town art museum
The Provincetown Art Association and Museum is worth a visit and also offers workshops.

Sailing, golf and tennis
Top on our list is the CYCC (Chequessett Yacht and Country Club) in Wellfleet - offering pro-lessons, a 9 hole course (with wonderful views of Cape Cod Bay), and a highly recommended summer camp for kids.
