Cape Cod, Massachusetts boasts some of the most breathtaking views on the East Coast. The seaside town of Wellfleet not only inspires wanderlust but also supplies a style that’s perfectly aligned with our not-so-secret love of all things nautical. From oysters to ocean views, this idyllic New England destination is perfect for a romantic getaway or girls’ weekend. Check out some of our favorite things to do for a stylish summertime escape!
1 | Soak Up the Sun at the Cape Cod National Seashore No trip to the Cape is complete without a visit to the beach! Hit up Marconi Beach to catch some rays and stick your toes in the sand. Set up the Picnic at Ascot Beach Shelter on windier days, and tote along a Coyuchi Mediterranean Guest Towel for drying off in style.
2 | Hit the Dance Floor at the Wellfleet Beachcomber Situated adjacent to the sand and diagonal to the dunes, the ‘Comber is the perfect place for good food and live music. Don your dancing shows for a night of jamming out to the likes of Deer Tick and G. Love, and end on a high note with oyster shots, the ultimate aphrodisiac.
3 | Catch a Flick at the Drive-In & Forage at the Wellfleet Flea Market Built in 1957, the Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre is a nostalgic blast-from-the past vibe for catching a double feature on a hot summer night. The flea market that takes over the parking lot during the day is filled with antiques and artisanal goods that make for the perfect souvenir, gift, or addition to your home.
4 | Bike the Cape Cod Rail Trail This gorgeous bike trail extends from Dennis to Wellfleet and provides an idyllic route to put your pedal to the metal. Treat yourself to lobster and fried clams at Arnold’s for a post-ride feast – you’ve earned it!
5 | Explore the Art Galleries in Wellfleet Harbor Wellfleet is known for being an artist’s hub, and art galleries abound around the harbor. Check out Left Bank Gallery, Frying Pan Gallery and Cove Gallery for an eclectic mix of fine and contemporary art. Afterwards pop into the Wellfleet Bookstore & Restaurant or Pearl for a drink and a fabulous meal to discuss your favorite pieces.
