Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod – The wine tastings are $10 per person and you try 5 wines.

White Crest Beach in Wellfleet, MA – the cliffs and beach are beautiful.

The Beachcomber – It’s a bar & restaurant in Wellfleet, MA.  The drinks are great and the nachos are even better!

Cape Cod Chip Factory – The tour is really not all that great since you just walk down a hallway while looking through windows into the factory and reading the history of the factory.  However, at the end you can buy a lot of different types of Cape Cod chips that I have not seen in stores.

Provincetown – Visit the art galleries, walk around, and see a show.

Eat dinner at the Lobster Pot in Provincetown, MA.  I don’t even eat seafood and I loved the food here.

The Vineyard… Martha’s Vineyard To Be Exact…

28 Dec

O the Vineyard.  I will admit: my main reason for wanting to go was because of the movie “Jaws.”  And, yes, I did go to the Jaws sites and annoyed locals with questions about Jaws.  However, there is quite a bit more to the Vineyard than just Jaws.  If you happen to be in Boston for a weekend or a week, I recommend renting a car or hitching a ride to one of the ferry pickups.  Once you arrive on the Vineyard, rent a bike and explore.  The following was my itinerary, but obviously you should follow whatever interests you:

Matt and I drove to Wood’s Hole and took the ferry to Vineyard Haven.  We then took a bus to Oaks Bluff where we walked around, had some lunch, relaxed on the beach, shopped, rode Flying Horses Carousel (one of the oldest carousel’s in the country), and rented bikes (DO).  We then biked from Oaks Bluff to all the Jaws sights I could find, which included American Legion Memorial Bridge and Edgartown.  In Edgartown, Matt and I walked around so that I could feel like I was in the movie (yes, I have a slight obsession) and then we got ice cream.  Afterward, we took the bus back to Oaks Bluff and then took the ferry back to Wood’s Hole.

Martha’s Vineyard is a great day trip and easily doable from Boston.
