Cape Cod, Massachusetts
On our way out to the Cape, we stopped off at Plymouth Rock. Seeing the area was so eye opening. We went to the Mayflower museum.
When we arrived in Cape Cod, we were hungry for a bite, so we stopped at Hallets. This is a cute local Ice Cream Shop, Hallet’s. It has been there since 1889. We got BLT’s and Clam Chowder.
Our next stop, was to check-in at The Inn at Yarmouth Port, which was our bed and breakfast for the remainder of our trip. There aren’t enough words to describe how much we loved the inn. This was such an amazing experience! The Inn was by far, one of the best places we’ve ever stayed(we chose to stay in Yarmouth because it was the middle of the cape, I am so glad we did). There were warm cranberry and chocolate chip cookies waiting on us and the room was to die for. The breakfast was such a treat each morning. Kathleen whips up something fabulous, and we loved everything we ate. Kathleen and Chuck are amazing hosts. They go above and beyond!
After checking in, we headed over to Chatham to check out the town and see the light house. I recommend going to see Chatham Bars. It is quite the resort!
That first night, we had dinner at The Old Yarmouth Inn which is just down the street from out Bed and Breakfast. This place was established in 1696. It has a gorgeous traditional New England exterior, and is like something out of a story. The Lobster Bisque and Flourless Chocolate Cake were my favorites. I highly recommend!
Antique Center of Cape Cod, this is a mega antique store with so many lovely pieces. We explored in here for a while.
Lunch at Sesuit Harbor Cafe. So delicious! This is the kind of place that you imagine when you think of New England! It is a must on the cape.
We drove out to Province Town to see the tip of the cape. It was such a great drive and the protected land along the way was stunning. The dunes are the biggest I’ve ever seen. Did you know the Pilgrims actually docked outside Province Town before settling in Plymouth? Lobster Pot is a favorite spot and makes for a great photo op. On our way back, we stopped by Cahoon Hollow Beach, this was such a cool experience. This is the largest beach I’ve ever been on, and at one point, we were the only ones on it. We saw seals swimming the coast and turkeys in the brush as we drove back to Yarmouth.
Antiques by the Bay in Brewster, was a random little house with an Antique store in the back. I found some great oyster plates there that I took home with me!
Parnassus Book Service in Yarmouth. Will is a big reader, so this was quite the experience for him! This store was lined, floor to ceiling with books. You name it, they had it, and as old as you cam imagine. It was so interesting flipping through pages of books, like Mark Twain originals.
Yarmouth Bay for beach exploring. Hidden gem!
One night we laid low and it was one of the most fun evenings! We ordered a pizza and played scrabble while enjoying a bottle of wine. Kathleen had the radio on my favorite- Traditional Easy Listening and Jazz. The Cape is all about slowing down, and this was so relaxing.
On our last night on the Cape, we had dinner at a local spot called The Pheasant. It was such a cozy setting with delicious New England food.
