Provincetown, MA —
Escape to the Cape

After finally washing ashore for year round living 20 years ago, I am pleased to be a part of this very special community on the tip of Cape Cod. Here's a few of my favorite places and things to do in Provincetown that one might explore during your Escape to the Cape!

There's many lovely places for higher end evening dining in town, so let me highlight a few daytime hot spots. Start your day with a great local diner breakfast at Chach. The french toast is amazing; there is not even a need for syrup - it’s that good! Headed to the beach afterwards? Grab one of the best sandwiches on the Cape at Farland, the East End Market, Angel Foods, or Pop+Dutch ... all local favorites! My new favorite spot for lighter dinner fare and top notch cocktails is the Strangers and Saints establishment which opened this summer. The Mediterranean style menu couldn't be fresher and the owners and staff are a complete delight!

"If your sea legs are in order, try one of our many fishing charters..."

My top of the list favorite #RaveisEscapes are on the harbor. Flyer's Boat Yard rents all types of watercrafts and runs a regular shuttle out to Long Point, the very tip of Cape Cod. Also, the schooners Hindu and Bay Lady have daytime and evening departures where you can bring your friends and family along with your coolers to enjoy a sail on the bay. If your sea legs are in order, try one of our many fishing charters or venture out to Stellwagon Bank National Marine Sanctuary on one of many whale watch boats.

However, if you prefer two feet on the ground, consider a walk or Art's Dune Tour out to the Dune Shacks on the backside of the National Seashore. It’s a longer hard-surface hike on the Fire Road out to Hatches Harbor, or a quick easy stroll around the trails at Beech Forest. Or, maybe you are a gardener? Be sure to take in the many gardens along Commercial Street in the West and East Ends of town or visit Garden Renovations Nursery for a local sampling of plants in a serene little haven on the way to Race Point Light.

"Plan your #RaveisEscape in Provincetown soon!"

If you need more physical activity in your #RaveisEscape there are miles of bike trails in the Province-lands, morning workout boot camps, yoga classes and our own public Provincetown Tennis Club featuring clinics, lessons and regular tournament socials. Finally, you might want to plan for the summer Friday night gallery openings, our annual August Carnival Week & Parade, Halloween, or our spectacular July 4th fireworks (always on the 4th of July). Looking for a quieter time and less crowds? There's still plenty to do in the spring and fall shoulder seasons and over the December holidays and New Years.
