From balmy temps to beautiful shores perfect for beaching, sailing and strolling around, there’s a lot to love about Cape Cod—but did you know that it’s also a top spot for foodies? Read on as we embark upon a virtual tour of this deliciously one-of-a-kind summer getaway.
Quintessential Cape Cod
Cape Cod is filled to the brim with summer towns, seaside spots that come alive when June rolls around and warm weather’s there to stay—so where do you start?
Many opt for the upturned “toe” of Cape Cod—at least, that’s what it looks like on a map! Provincetown sits at the northernmost tip of the Cape, and is known for its one-of-a-kind character. Colonial facades line the ultra-walkable Commercial Street, playing host to shops, galleries, and plenty of spots for chilling out with a cool ice cream cone. After some time strolling through town, it’s time to hit the beach. Herring Cove Beach is an especially popular option for soaking up the sun and salty air—and even swells on your bodyboard! Once you head harbor-side, where marinas line the coast (giving you easy access to a fun fishing charter adventure), you will be able to spot a historical site: Provincetown Harbor, the place where the Pilgrims signed the Mayflower Compact in 1620, almost 400 years ago!
When you’re back on dry land for the day, don’t forget to indulge in some fresh local flavors. Like we said, this is a foodie hotspot because it embraces the simplicity of fresh, homegrown ingredients and classical prep styles! You can’t go wrong with fresh seafood (lobster is, of course, a New England favorite) or a creamy clam chowder on cool summer nights.
Exploring the coast
When you’re seeking a back-to-nature escape, head to the Cape Cod National Seashore—here, the hustle and bustle of Cape Cod’s coastal towns gives way to scenic, unspoiled views all around. It’s the perfect place to explore the dunes, go birding or settle in for a beautiful sunset.
Water lovers will also enjoy embarking of chartered fishing adventures and whale-watching tours (just like us, whales love the Cape during summertime!). You can also go sailing, a classic Cape tradition, or stick closer to shore and enjoy a leisurely stand-up paddleboard session.
For Cape flavor at home…
Of course, you don’t need to travel all the way to Cape Cod to enjoy its culinary tradition of New England eats and fresher-than-fresh fish. That one-of-a-kind cuisine has traveled all the way down the East Coast, inspiring Florida-born foodies to enjoy some serious bites (or offering New England transplants a taste of home!). On your next meal out at Stonewood, here are a few Cape flavors to enjoy…
