Now that it’s quieting down into our favorite season of the year (locals’ summer), we love exploring parts of the Cape minus the crowds. Taken from the pages of the 2018 CapeMade Field Guide, explore P’Town with us for a day of eating, drinking and walking.
Head towards the outermost point of the Cape and as you reach the end of the Truro border, take a left and head into town on Route 6A…passing by all of the beach cottages feels like you are headed into paradise.
Stop at Fannizi’s by the Sea as you enter in to town for a Bloody Mary and breathtaking bay views. Check out the Provincetown Art Association and Museum (PAAM) for an exciting collection of rotating exhibits or visit the Center for Coastal Studies and enjoy a full humpback whale skeleton, whale and seal walks and tidal flats exploration.
Walk down MacMillan Pier for sweeping views and local artists before grabbing lunch at The Canteen or The Squealing Pig, a beer at the Nor’east Beer Garden or some tea at The Captain’s Daughter before heading to the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum.
Eat and drink your way through the stylish and chic Joon Bar and Kitchen, Strangers & Saints, Local 186 or Spindler’s or classics like The Mews Restaurant, Jimmy’s Hideaway or The Red Inn. Conclude the night posted up at the piano bar at the Crown and Anchor or walking the cobblestone streets, taking in the sights and sounds.
Make sure to stay the night or designate a sober driver!
