The Cape is one of those places that I feel like everyone wants to go to at some point in their lifetime – it’s the idealist American vacation. Especially for East-coasters, it seems. I was lucky enough to spend a few days up there with my familial at the end of July. Here’s what we got up to..
The house that we were staying in (an Air BnB) was based in Orleans, a cutesy little town that had stretches of beach literally outside your house. We had a small private beach just opposite our house, which was about a 30 second walk away, which was where we spent most of our time.
However, we did venture up to Provincetown (the very tip of the Cape) for a day: it was probably an hours drive from where we were in Orleans. Lots of my parents’ friends had recommended that we take a trip up there and I’m so glad we did. The town is built around the LGBT community, and almost everything about it really reminded me of Brighton in the UK. It seemed that the main part of Provincetown (at least the touristy part) was made up of one main, long street that had little side alleys coming off of it. We ate at a small pub-garden thing, before exploring the main street and the beach. There was also ice-cream of the vegan kind involved too!
I was so pleased to be able to spend some time in the Cape. I’d love to go back at some point – perhaps some time in the cooler months, as I’ve heard good things about it!
Have you been to the Cape at all? Let me know!
